Strengths:    Hey guys, in early fifties, lifetime surfer world wide, got into MTBiking again! I wanted performance, speed for on- road, strength, reaction for off- road, this bike flies and performs, best of both worlds if you push it ( not extreme! ). Great bike so far! Price matches bike. 27.5"- just right! Off to risk my neck, on my SkateB! Stay well.

Weaknesses:    Pedals are crap (???). 6'2" and feet to match! If your budget can cope, whack on ' Shine ' PD-MX80 pedals, remove spacer's and you will feel it. Giant, if you read this, you owe me £60 smackers!!!

Bottom Line:   
Deliverer's in most area's. Apart from the above weakness! 27.5" is worth going against the industry grain!

Strengths:    The Rock Shox fork has great travel at 100 mm. It has a lockout system with a whole range of travel options.The bike is incredibly light for its cost and take quite a hit.The hydraulic Disc brakes from Shimano stop smoothly and fast. I ride mine faithfully and beat it up hard on the trail. For this price this is a quality bike!

Weaknesses:    Only weakness is the components.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is worth the cost and I recommend this for a beginner into racing.
