    My Superfly is the Superfly 100 al. The bike if fairly light at 29 lbs for being a 30 speed with an aluminum frame and full suspension. A lot of the weight is in the wheels and could be easily reduced. I converted over to a 1x setup and love it even more. The components were okay...x7 drivetrain and avid elixr brakes. The x7 is a good derailleur, not a great one. The brakes work but are a pain to bleed and get exactly right. The only real problem I had was with the casette either bending or warping and I started ghost shifting. This bike can take a lot of abuse and get back up no problem. I would even say I could do some light downhill on it with a shorter stem and wider bars. Overall it has done everything I ask of it and keeps on rolling. As for price, you can find these used all the time for sub $1500 in very good condition. The only thing I wish it had was a little more travel but seeing as how it's a xc bike I understand they took away some plushness for more speed. I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for a good xc or trail bike. If are a racer this is a good start but might recommend the carbon versions. If you are an aggressive rider that wants to hit it jumps and rocky difficult sections, I would suggest something with a little more travel.

    Pros
    Fast

    Lightweight (for the setup)

    Great suspension

    Great value

    Cons
    Components could be much better

    Bottle cage locations are not the best

    Missing iscg mount and an adapter won't fit a press fit bb. Custom ordered a clamping iscg adapter from South Africa and it still did not fit.

    Reviewing Trek Superfly FS 8:
    ****

    I would recommend this bike because it is a really fun bike to ride. It is great for XC racing. It has a light and nimble frame with good choice of component sets.

    Pros
    This is a very nice bike and it has many nice features such as the G2 Geometry. The frame is very aggressive for XC riding and will do well for the trail.

    Cons
    I felt that the angle of the frame made it seem like the wheels were quite heavy and hard to maneuver. (Bulky if you will). It might be my history with 26" bikes.

    A solid enough build, but the saddle made the already pretty harsh ride unbearable. If you don't mind the punishment as a trade-off for speed, a decent choice.

    Pros
    Fast, fairly light, decent parts

    Cons
    Sub-par wheels, horrible saddle, a little heavy for an XC bike

    I love this bike - super fun, very fast and can handle pretty much anything

    Pros
    fast ride, great climber, lightweight. Style - I like the gray with hints of orange - orange hubs too.

    Cons
    I replaced my chain with a more "heavy duty" one. I snapped the stock chain in a very routine gear shift and could not make the repair on the trail. Never wanted a hike like that again. Have to adjust shock setting on the shock which is challenging when approaching technical sections. I went with a tubeless, nobby tire for better Front Range (CO) riding

    This review is for the AL 100 (not the Elite). This website didn't give me that option.
    Yes, if you need a little extra nudge to make a purchase for a really great full suspension MTB, this bike is for you!

    Pros
    This bike gives you 100mm travel using FOX suspension and is very responsive.
    Also, for a 29'er, it's lighter than most other bikes on the market.
    This is by far one of the most stable full suspension bike platforms I've ever ridden.

    Cons
    very minor, but the reflectors will be destroyed after your first wipeout.
    If anything, For the value of the bike, I think they could have put a better crankset on the bike.

    This is a gorgeous bike! I'm converting it to tubeless. Ever since I converted my last bike to tubeless I will never go back.

    Pros
    Just picked this up at the Denver Veloswap for $2475 plus tax. Retail is $4400. Has a decent groupo (SRAM 9) and Avid Elixir R brakes. Very light and stiff with decent travel.

    Cons
    The grief I got from the wife for buying it without letting her know...
