    you're not allowed to pass comment until you provide more pictures :lol:

    im trying desperately to think of a good reason why i dont need a mondraker.
  • there are no good reasons,

    I have about 3-4 different threads of personal messages asking me about the draker cos people are so interested and no one can find a bike mag reveiw as the only reveiw trek/ specilized and oranges i swear.

    Ooo and forgot, yes tre sexy foxy mate your gonna fricken love it.
  • beautiful looking bike

    is the bolt and washer thingy which attaches the seat stays to the shock linkage reversible to change the geo/travel?

    I narrowed my choice down to 3... Lapierre zesty 314,Ghost AMR 7500 and the Mondraker..... :?

    I did find a couole of reviews for the Mondrakers online ( some i had to translate ) The company has been going 10 years !

    I just loved the overal package of the Mondrakers, :D they are releasing some very tasy bikes at present. I liked the fact it was a bit different from the 'norm' at present. The supplier i found locally to me is shipping them out at a crazy pace ! There was this review but they used the Foxy RR for the pic ... :oops: !Foxy.jpg
  • one thing i will say,

    Your fork will never look that white again lol.
  • Lovely looking bike! The red bits really accent the blue and look a good combo. Nice!

    Awesome bike.

    When I get some freeride skills I'm soooo getting a Mondy prayer.
  • that is very nice the red bits to add some flare, it had some already tbf though, very nice.

    The bike is standard (i have only changed the grips) and is as it comes 'off the peg'

    The red bits were not my doing, just my choosing ! :D

    What make is that stem? Or is a Mondraker? If they do that in 50mm that would look awesome on my Blue Pig build.



    It is listed as : M-Decline AM 31.8mm 80/90/100 mm so i am guessing it's one of their own ?

    their own brand finishing kit is pure class looking.

    Not unlike my DuneR but alittle better up,

    These are more mini play bikes there great, they can climb confidently and happily but when you point it down <3

    From what i have used it for so far i have loved it ! I am not very experienced ( and dont have much to compare against ) as this is my first full susser.But it does seem to like climbing. I seem to be able to stay seated alot more going up and even manage to make ground on some of the more experienced lads in the group i ride with....coming down ( maybe just me ) but i do find myself hanging off the back more than i am used to ? Plan to take it further afield during the course of the year and give it more of a 'seeing to' :wink:
  • Put a deposit down on one of these yesterday! Can't wait to pick it up and take it for a proper spin!!
