Playful! Yes that's right, I said playful. The Fourstroke 03 by BMC was one of the best play dates I have had since elementary school. After the introductions, the BMC Fourstroke 03 was my companion in a frolic through the desert.

The Fourstroke 03 features an Advanced Pivot System (APS). The extra narrow precision bearings, combined with the compact pivot arms, are a minor detail that make a world of difference in the overall handling of the bike. These two features added to an extra stiff front end and turned our frolic into an erotic dance on the trails. The BMC Fourstroke 03 tracked well on fast technical descents and the stiff front made sure the bike went where it was told. Even with a short travel suspension, the bike handled small rock drops and fast rocky descents with ease. For an XC design the bike took to the air like a smuggler out of Central America.

Being a full suspension, the rear end does get soft on climbs and looses a little bit of power coming out of corners. This however, should not be a deterrent to the weekend warrior or the novice racer. The Fourstroke 03 is a great all around Mountain bike and is as forgiving as Mother Theresa.
