What's nice is that the spec on site tells you the casing, TPI etc, so you know what you're getting.

They also offer a different choice of tires as well. Nice to see some options when purchasing.

White patches aren't a bad thing anymore - just a product manager's choice.

Hm, the SLX comes across as a pretty decent deal. I think like it, the name is epic.

Wow that’s impressive. Frame only with coil upgrade  is about $2400 CDN. Good candidate for a custom build.

That bike is a super smart spec at a sharp price. Would ride. Most amazingly the SLX bike is cheaper than the GX bike. If other companies can replicate that, the end of Eagle has arrived.

Bang for buck the NX build is even better.

Easy to recommend to anyone on a tighter budget who doesn't want a mail order bike.
