Strengths:    This bike is great. I have learned everything on this bike and it's an absolute beast for 650$. Anyone that think you can't go fast on this is dead wrong, you can go fast on pretty much any bike with the right skills. This bike is great for bunny hopping. I've seen people fly on this bike and certainly go faster than people with 300$+ full squish bikes. I would for sure buy this bike.

Weaknesses:    Front sprocket slips chains a lot.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is GREAT I would for sure get it. The people complaint don't know what they are talking about. I've rid a 5000$ dollar bike in the mountains of Colorado, yet I enjoy riding the hook way more, it's a blast

Strengths:    geometry but thats as far as it goes.

Weaknesses:    non tapered steerer, qr9 dropouts and hubs, extremely poor fork, brakes are horrific, drive train is complete crap.

Bottom Line:   
as for the guy above claiming to be a all mountain rider, then posts a review purchasing a 500 dollar bike?????

uh im going to say hes a troll. his post is complete nonsence. that bike is a scam and very poor one at that.

upgrade all the components listed above and you may just have a basic entry lvl hardtail.

however.... without thruaxle and with a tapered steerer this frame and thus the bike is dead in the water.

whats even worse is it has iscg05 mounts which makes zero sence to anyone with any mountain biking experience.

Strengths:    Everything, a 27.5 hardtail with a 1x front with slack head tube, wide bars and short stem with 120mm travel, what more could you want, this bike is absolutely a steal for $650, carves berms a d rails tight technical sections. Did i mention it jumps like a plane, everything about this bike is phenomenal.

Weaknesses:    Absolutely nothing, I'm 245lbs and i was able to jump this for the past week on free ride trails at duthie hill like voodoo child and semper dirticus, nothing js showing wear, i make the $4000 bikes look bad in this beast of a ride, fork is a bit heavy but it isnt really noticable.

Bottom Line:   
If you don't buy this bike i feel bad for you, not the best for someone looking to get back into shape as the 1x drivetrain is a bit limited but it isn't a problem for me, if your in yours late teens and stretched on cash but just want to ride then get this bike.
