    Summary

    Expirience with the Rock Machine Catherine 40-27

    Rock Machine Catherine 40-27 Review The women's model from Rock Machine uses the same frame as the men's Torrent and Manhattan hardtails. But the Catherine 40-27 courts the favor of female buyers with add-on parts specific to women, such as the saddle. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. When it comes to the seating position, Rock Machine chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Downcountry-Bike around under 800 Euro that would suit you better. With the shifting components, Rock Machine fulfills not only the current standard, but even puts the icing on the cake with its extremely high-quality components. Pay attention when selecting your size: the Rock Machine Hardtail sizing runs small.
