Empella durability?(2 posts)

Empella durability?seamus
Mar 4, 2003 9:09 PM
Anyone had any problems? I'm a light, smooth rider, but I like to ride cross bikes everywhere. I lust for these bikes but I don't want one if it's a throwaway after two years of sensible riding (no fast DH or jumps, other lame stuff). Any thoughts?

I haven't had mine that long, but would not consider it a throwaway. Its not stupid light, mines almost 4lbs. (63cm), it has a gusset at the headtube as well. This tells me it wasn't engineered with only being as light as possible in mind. I'm far from light and am not afraid to use mine on single track.
