bike is deece, however cove as a company is a real pain in the ass to deal with.
My friend bought an 08 peeler from the cove and while he liked it the shock (vivid 5.1) blew up and when takedn to the shop found out it had the wrong mounting hardware which caused it to move around and blow up. After numerous emails and phone calls to cove to get his recipeit to warranty with sram he finaly got it. Cove sent it to sram and they did fuck all wiht it, shipped it back to cove and they also didnt fix it. Shock blew 2 times more (both of first rides), Cove said absolutley nothing. He worked all summer to buy the frame and they fucked him over and wouldnt help him at all with anything. He ended up calling them over 10 times before he got a recpiet. Bike is now sold.
sparknotes: bike is good, company is not
I know the Cove is in west van. That's where he bought the bike, its only 3.5 hours away, a day trip.
Also he ended up getting a brand new 2010 vivid but that didnt solve the problem because cove never gave him the correct mounting hardware.
