Teacher’s notes: You could easily win cross-country races with the Jekyll as-delivered. We had nagging problems keeping its Coda Expert disc brakes adjusted properly, though, and most of its componentry can be found on dual-suspension sport-racers that cost far less. Its monoshock suspension is simple and its frame is lightweight. Its on-the-fly lockout levers make it a sharp climber.
