You're also equipped with a 100mm-travel suspension fork for total control over roots, rocks, anything.

    Comments:

    As a lifelong rider I have owned a lot of bikes over the years, everything from ultralight roadies to rugged mountain bikes. These days I commute by bike during the week and ride with my kids on the weekend on the road, paved pathways and well maintained dirt park paths. When my main mountain bike was damaged I decided to try a few test rides on different bikes before committing to an expensive repair bill. After one ride on the Skye SL I just had to have it. The geometry is well thought out and extremely comfortable for me as an average, athletic female. The components are good quality and this bike can handle pretty much anything I throw at it. I've taken it on some pretty aggressive trails and it performed really well and is equally at home on family jaunts around the local park trails or my mixed terrain commute. The more I ride the better I love this bike. It could well be the best bike I've ever owned.

    Comments:

    Haven't had a new bike since '97 so this was a real treat. The fit is excellent for women with superb comfort. Haven't done much riding yet, but can tell I'll be having better performance rides on the trails with the Skye SL.
