2UP Test Ride Testimonials
James Eldridge - rode cross country
trail at Stromlo Forest Park, September 2011
"It got up the hill quite quickly. When I saw a technical section I went right through it instead of around it, which I would not do on my bike. Where I aimed is exactly where it went –straight!.”
"I've ridden the 2UP a number of times on both recreational rides and cross-country races. Quite simply, the bike makes me a better rider. It's fun because I can challenge myself to ride harder; it feels great from the moment you set up; it's responsive and it handles downhill and grinding uphill better than any bike I've owned. I'd recommend it to my friends without hesitation - in fact I already have. Don't buy a bike until you've tested the Deubel 2UP - I guarantee you won't look back!."
"Its a greate bike, so good! Soaked up all the rocks and pumps. Can't fault it. I came 3rd in my catgegory in the four cross and the 2UP went faster than in my race. Where it took me a while to try jumps on my bike, I was able to do them on the 2UP very quickly. I felt more confident."
"Corners really well, nice whips. I noticed there was no brake jacking when I intentionally braked in corners."
"Very stable, very stiff frame. It rides lighter than you would expect from an all mountain bike. In the single-track section I rode I was able to throw it into the turns, and it kept it’s line far better than anything I have ever ridden. It didn’t seem to matter which line I took. I purposely took very rough lines to see how it would perform. Ruts just disappeared. The suspension was very supple. Overall, very impressed by the frame quality. I would use a slightly longer stem and laidback seatpost on my bike, but these are personal preferences, and do not impact on the bike as a whole."
