The Soda FR is a truly adjustable, do-it-all bike for new-school riders. Perfect for slopestyle, jumps and tricks in the short chainstay and short travel setting. Switch to long travel, place the wheel in the long chainstay position and the bike transforms into a plush and stable mini-dh machine. And what's important, you can get the seat up and ride the bike to your favorite location without breaking a sweat. The heart of the bike is the super sturdy and reliable frame. Big bearings, rigid, burly and overbuilt. It will take anything you can throw at it. Just ask Jaws.
The Soda FR2 is built using a careful selection of components and offers amazing quality at a very competitive price.

note on sizing: for jump-focused riders we recommend the M size for riders up to 180cm, and the L size for riders up to 190cm. However if you wish to adjust the the seat height for optimum pedaling, we recommended the M size for riders up to 177cm and the L size for riders up to 185cm. This will however require the use of a longer seatpost than the original one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought this bike under a year ago and its already started to feel odd. Other than the bearings, pivots and forks-which have to be repaired- I like the rest of the bike. The geometry feels good and it shows when you take it down the steep stuff, butthe bike is so heavy that it struggles to get going out of the berms. Even if you stick to the steep stuff, the components don't seem to last long until they pack up again and its off to the bike shop :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Basic spec for the money, otherwise great first impression. Downside is that its started to go wrong already! Pivot bearings are going, hubs and forks rattling/creaking. its still great fun to ride but high maintenance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Really good bike
This bike is really fun to ride, it's really versatile and surprisingly agile. I've had fun with this bike in the snow, sand, woods, pretty much everywhere and it performs very well everywhere! Only little thing I don't like is the forks, you can't adjust them but oh well you can always buy a different fork of your liking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous very good on the downhill stuff, rails berms nicely and good over the jumps. Downside is that its a bit expensive for the spec it has, finding it struggles on the techy stuff and not as good at uphill as NS say either.
