Interesting as I hated the idrive xcr4000 I bought back in 1999. God awful thing that was meant to get me back in to mtb after a 5 year break but actually put me off for another 5! :facepalm:

Don't get me wrong, the lower models were shite! You had to have an air shock and the lighter US made frame set up properly for the rider's weight. They had lighter CNC machined i-drive unit with better bearings. As a package they were worlds apart from the coil spring shock heavy xcr 4000's. My brother had one of those and it was like a pogo stick! :lol:
