Fred Harmons Concourier 2010 C14 report
« on: December 06, 2009, 07:30:00 pm »
 Well I had some time to read some of the Fall Concourier today. I have to give Fred a two thumbs up for his article on the new 2010 C14. Fred covered a broad array of topics in his report (with good photos), which covered changes to the new 2010 C14 compared to the 08-09 version. I have to admit that I like the new changes to the 2010 model. I'm not sure if the linked brakes trade off will keep me from trading up to a new one or not since I tend to trail brake when I play. Of course the price to upgrade is pretty steep as well.  I have plenty of time to kick the idea around.  But this thread is really a toast to Fred for a job well done. I know it was tough on you having to fly out there and suffer through the test.  :p    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  2008 C14 & 2003 Mean Streak

I have to agree with you Bob, Fred did a great job. A lot better than the web reports I have read. COG did a great job in being the first publication to get a review in print. These are a couple of the reasons I just renewed my membership for another 4yrs.

Agreed!  Fred did a great job.   Good to see a review which is not biased like some mags do.
