" Fantastic Geometry "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 26th Aug 2004 from Singapore

The Review
Some parts arent too good. Could have provided a better fork (judy TT) and some scott components like the brakes are stiff.

Strengths
Lightweight!
Very good geometry for racing, climbing!
Nice paintwork

Weaknesses
Frame can dent if clamped!
suprisingly, its rather strong to survive some big crashes.

Duration of product used
Not Sure

The Review
The bike was great at first, but reliability problems started appearing.
After a small fall on the road(spokes didn't caught on to anything), one of the spoke broke after 2 weeks.
Then the front hub became wobbly.
The fork's preload cap are also unreliable, it became stucked then suddenly snapped off when i tried to turn it.

Strengths
-Light, chio, frame
-Grippy tires
-pimpy and comfortable saddle
-good climbing geometry
-great potential for upgrading

Weaknesses
-after a fall, a rear wheel spoke broke after 2 weeks.
-front hub became wobbly after 2 months
-stock pedals are not clipless, they dont offer lots of grip too.
-frame scratches and dents easily
-fork is heavy/unsmooth/notchy/high stiction/ugly, preload cap became stucked, then juz snapped off.

" Hmmm...I got the power! "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 7th Sep 2003 from Singapore

The Review
I m not too sure why did the earlier reviewers rate this bike as average,.... to me it is an unpolished gem.

Great body with not so good components, which could be upgraded if you would like to invest further.

Need to change to better suspension, preferably Duke or SID series, and upgrade to hydraulic brakes. Wheelsets need to be upgraded as well. Good for long distance cycling.

Strengths
Light and fast

Weaknesses
None yet

Duration of product used

" So light, so thin, so ..... "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 30th Jul 2003 from Singapore

The Review
The frame is light. Its so thin it has to be light. Got to change the fork man. For this kind of price u would expect a better fork. Deore parts and drivetrain are reasonable enuff if u dont mind the extra grams. The Ritchey headset looks so cheap! Even my Yecora came with a sealed bearing one. 4 hours on the stock saddle and you will walk like a cowboy!!

Paid $880 for it and i guess i shouldn't complain too much. LOL.

Strengths
- Light.
- Nice colour.

Weaknesses
- Judy TT.
- Paper-thin frame.
- Cheap-looking headset.

Duration of product used

Bike Setup

RS Pilot SL fork, Deore V-brakes, Deore FD, LX RD, Deore shifters, XT crankset/BB, FSA headset, Wellgo pedals, Alesa ZAC-19 rims, Formula front hub, Deore rear hub, DT Swiss spokes, Scott X-Rod flat bar, Scott Comp stem, Kalloy seatpost, Scott Racing saddle, Scott Manx 26x2.0" tires, Topeak Medium Wedge saddle bag, Cateye Cordless7 cyclometer, Sigma rear blinker, Minoura alu bottle cage ... i think thats about it.

You can pay a 100 more for a Pilot SL , much better than the current JTT , Also 950 is quite a high price .

Nice ass ride!
Slick frame~!

Weaknesses
You can hear your hubs vibrating when u going at speeds of 40km/h on flat ground , not forgetting downhill .
