    Quick Iron Horse frame question

    Which is the better frame regarding durability, Maverick or Warrior? It's a dual suspension frame.

    Thanks.

    Their site says that Maverick is lower in the line-up but was wondering if the frames are any different in real world durability as the pricepoints are similar, Warrior being a little more expensive.

    They both appear to be basic single pivot designs. There most likely pretty equal in the durability department but the Warrior seems to be a bit beefier.

    Thats what I ended up ordering from Performance, the Warrior 4.5, for that very reason. Have been looking to buy an MTB for a while, their one day 20% off coupon swayed it for me. Anyone have any experience of that particular bike? Anything I need to watch out for or quirks?

    Both are single pivots but Warrior is higher in the IH offer. Azure and MKIII is where things get really good though.
