Iron Horse Sinister 29er Full Suspension

The hydro formed aluminum frame cuts weight and adds strength by moving material and reinforcement to where it's needed. The 6.5 also upgrades to a Rock Shox XC28 suspension fork further enhancing the bike's performance.

Strengths:    Frame Geometry

Weaknesses:    Cheap parts
Poor Assembly

Bottom Line:   
This is a bargain starter bike and would recommend it to anyone working with limited funds. This is definitely the best bike in the $300 - $500 range for a full suspension mountain bike.(the Mongoose XRPro might be better) Obviously the bike deserves some upgrades but you can't even find a new frame for the price you will pay for the whole bike.
