The 770 is pretty clean. It’s laced with some cool Shimano components, Avid mechanical disc brakes and my favorite feature on the bike, the Marzocchi EXR Pro Air. I took the 770 out just around the neigborhood and found it to be more than capabale of being a commuter bike, but I think it has the potential as a nice XC Race bike. Just looking at the 770 makes my teeth hurt since its soooooo sweet!
We’ll be testing out the 770 this weekend at a local trail, so stay tuned for the first impression.
