    Summary

    Expirience with the Rock Machine Catherine 40-29

    Rock Machine Catherine 40-29 Review The women's model from Rock Machine uses the same frame as the men's Torrent and Manhattan hardtails. But the Catherine 40-29 courts the favor of female buyers with add-on parts specific to women, such as the saddle. Thanks to a moderate 67,4 degree head tube angle, the handling is pleasantly balanced. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Rock Machine Catherine 40-29 suite the taste of most bikers. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Catherine 40-29 doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Downcountry-Bike in the same price range that are more focused on descends. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Rock Machine sizing runs small.
