    Looking at Harvey Cycles (.com) Bikes...

    Hey my first post!

    Does anyone have any experience with harveycycles.com bikes? I can't seem to find many reviews of them on mtbr. I'm looking at their Laurel Mountain bike and it seems like a good deal. The frame look outstanding and beefy enough and the specs seem competative with other bikes. Thanks guys!

    Kyle.

    Hi Kyle. While I've not ridden one of these frames, I was visiting the area a few weeks ago to get a taste of what the NC mountain bike scene was about, and I stumbled upon this bike shop. I checked out the mtb frames, and man did they look great. As you also noted, they look built (stout) for abuse. I also spoke to the owner/creator of the frames, and he really seemed to know his stuff. Obviously, that's not quite all the information you need in terms of a purchase. However, I'd be interested in hearing a few reviews of these frames also.

    I live a few miles from that shop and I know............ well if it were me I would buy a good bike with a good reputation. That way if I need something fixed I could get it done. I don't think I would buy one. Hey Bac, what did ya think of the riding around here????? The next time you come down, holla and we'll ride.
