    IH Sunday-Freeridable?

    im lookin in to gettin a new bike. the team i ride for is sponsered by iron horse and i know the sunday is a sweet bike for downhill(ive heard, ive only ridden one around the parking lot). but since i live in Arizona and there is no downhill circuit, i tend to do more freeriding than DH. i do downhill, just not a lot.

    what do you guys think about the sunday team as a freeride bike?

    ok, so what do I know, but . . .

    with your skills, you could ride just about anything and STILL be a great rider . . .

    you MAY not like the way the IH Sunday reacts to braking and downhills . . . but I guess you would have to really test ride one and see . . .

    now that you have "hit the big time" why not have a FR and a DH bike?

    for FR, what you need is a very nice 05' Foes Fly! uber-bucks, but very cool

    fly can be used for DH and does a great job

    The Sunday works best when going uphill..especially uphill landing.

    You mean that the suspension stays active and keeps traction with the bumps in the trail no matter if you are on the brakes or pedaling? I thought that was a good thing!! heh

    A freeride Sundae is in the works. You may have missed the press realease from early April. The bike is spec'd w/ 24" wheels, 3.0 tires, and the new 8" single crown 1.5 fork. (but I think it should come w/ a Super Monster to be more gooder). I saw pics of the prototype on a German site and the color looks like rootbeer.

    No, you have it backwards tard. You want the rear wheel to lock under braking and pedaling to help pedaling. Duh. Go back to school.
