    Hey Spectra, what are you riding now and what type of riding do you do?
    The Brodie is a sweet machine but you do realize it is a dirt jump/freeride bike? If you are doing any xc riding you may want to get a triple on the front with an MRP LRP chinguide if you also ride dj/fr/dh.

    That is a sweet bike. The geometry is one of my favorites. Brodie also makes a very tough bike.

    Hey Dirt what did you mean by

    Triple clamp for xc riding. Or triple clamp for dj/fr/dh. Cause that fork would be fine for xc as long as you don't mind some weight and bobbing.

    There is no need for a triple unless there is road sections or extremely fast downhils.

    Hey Dirt

    Right now I ride a 2002 Brodie Force. I am doing lots of xc cause thats what its made for, but I am really beating the hell out of it trying other stuff; drops, jumps etc.. But since it is my first "real" mtb, Im kinda infatuated with it, no matter the quality. Im telling you, its a strong bike, but its not going to last too long if/when my skill level goes up.

    I know that the holeshot is a bit heavy, but I am ok with that and so far I feel that this would be the bike for me. Of course right now there are two problems with it:
    1: I am sort of a Brodie guy right now and am interested in sticking with there bikes, so I havent given anything else a shot
    2: I have yet to try it out and I could very well hate the ride... sooo, right now I am concentrating on what I have and concentrating on developing my skills.

    Now I have to wipe the blood running down my leg,

    If anything the brodie will take the stuff you throw at it. Because of the odd geometry you should try and test ride something smilar before hopping on. It is a strange feeling bike. Norco Sasquatch, Balfa Minuteman, Kona Roast / Stuff, Le Toy (Quebec bike and very tough Urban BEAST) all have a slacker feel than a xc bike. This may sway your decision.
