    I like the frame and that Marzocchi fork, no front brake though. (were you the one talking about not having a front brake?)

    I don't like those treks, but that's a nice bike. Rear-only brake is cool, but it's pointless when you run a front derraileur (or is that part of the chainguide), since a cable comes from that side for shifting anyway.

    I do have the front deraileur(sp), I only took out the front brake because mine is bent at the moment and I haven't replaced it yet, and madbiker, that was me posting about not having a front brake before.

    It's not really a dirt jumper bike. I don't have any dirt jumps around here, I actually use it mostly urban.

    alright well i can rephrase. I am not very fond of urban/dirt jumper bikes. The ones with a smaller frame. It looks nice though

    One thing I will say is that the saddle and the fork suck. You should send them to me so I can set them straight. I do this free of charge.

    The Brusier 2, very nice ride, I was going to be all over it this year, and then they came out with that fricken ugly blue, I was tempted to get a Brusier 1, and update it, just to have the flat black frame, but I went with the 4300 this year instead, and hopefully the 2 will have a better paint scheme next year. Nice bike though, my buddy has last years 2, and it's a blast very nice to balance, and hop on the back tire.

    Raiyn, why don't you like Treks or toilet paper? O and Trekkie, I was just wondering everyone elses opinion, it's not like I am going to turn around and sell the bike if someone says they dont like it.

    I DO like T.P. Treks just never feel good to me and to me they handle like a dumptruck
