Dirt 100 2011: Morewood Makulu

Billy Thackray Billy Thackray

The Makulu is a about as good a demonstration as it gets of just how well suspension can work if a linkage design and shock are perfectly matched. If you then chuck a BOS fork up front too the result is nothing short of sensational, with the type of balance and composure that is rarely found.

Combine that with great geometry and you’ve got a bike that is nothing short of seriously rapid. We didn’t think it could get any better, but we’ve just heard that for 2011 there will be full BOS builds coming into the UK which will sell for £4600 despite dripping with other equally impressive parts like Formula brakes and Shimano Saint. That sounds like a killer deal to us.

Price: £2600.00 inc bos stoy or fox dhx rc4

    Less than 5k for a full BOS build! Wow

  2. Bikeactive.

    We have a few of these on order. Excellent value considering the reviews it gets.

    So which is better, a 224 with a CCDB and RS Boxxer WC or a BOS Makalu? :)

    @ dd monkey – i personally think they are a good match, sure the makulu runs very sweet indeed but a 224 with a ccdb is pretty damn formidable…. personal preference will decide, the makulu is prob better to look @ although i myself run the 224 with ccdb and 40’s up front…

    Hmm yes similar price too!

    damn thats a steal for 4600 ! i’m in the market for a new DH bike next year and i want to stick with single pivot with a linkage but have more travel then my 08 Supreme , this is a big contender!

    Seriously if you take that mondraker over this you should be medicated. Also the look is amazing. It beats anything I’ve seen in a long time. Even that bos lapierre.

    Love my BOS Makulu. I would love to see a Dirt review of the new Izimu though, with a CCDB and see how it compares to the 224.
