    Summary

    Expirience with the Conway MS 4.9

    Conway MS 4.9 Review You love to ride your bike in light terrain? Then the Racebike of Conway and you could become friends. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Conway Hardtail is a very balanced customer. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the MS 4.9 doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Racebike in the same price range that are more focused on descends. An argument still remains extremely strong: compared to the competitors in the same price segment, Conway spec significantly better brakes. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 5 years warranty Conway sets the bar high!
