Strengths:    Good beginners bike for a big guy , better brakes than most at this price

Weaknesses:    Front derailer , actually broke on my bike , slow from a stop , regardless of fitment attempts , bike has awkward geometry , feels like you are riding on top of the bike instead of in the cockpit , pedals suck , you get what you pay for with the front fork

Bottom Line:   
Good beginners bike for a big guy , you will break things on this bike , as its has inexpensive components .
For the price its not bad , rolls like a steamroller , would be an excellent bike for just fireroads and sugarsand trails , when things get technical , you will get beat up , and switchbacks are a nightmare on this bike . If you want an off road bike this is a good value , if you want to ride technical single track , switchbacks , or bike parks choose another

Strengths:    my 1st 29er - goes up & down hills nicely (actually flies down hills) :zoom: Can take the knocks. Had it on some goat tracks w/ other riders & their $3.5 K bikes, managed to do all they did (@ a slower rate of course) :narb: Actually fell off 2 tracks into the above ride (rider skill - not bike) & she didn't skip a beat!! Breaks seem to handle my 113 kg frame (good big boys toy)

Weaknesses:    Front derailleur has caused chain to gag a couple of times. Got baby blue styles (last 1 in store) black & white would be da bomb. I like bigger pedals & haven't had issue with these (I am allergic to water mind you) :lol:

Bottom Line:   
Thinking of parts to upgrade i.e. telescopic seat-post, front derailleur, pedals, forks!?
But, from looking around - that would be cost of a whole new bike :eek:
Maybe I'll upgrade parts that I can transfer to next mtb...

7.5 out of 10 for mind... Guess the more I get into riding the need to upgrade will become more apparent -otherwise bike is perfect for where I'm at :holla:

Strengths:    Big and light wheels and tires, very fast and sturdy at a reasonable price. Much cheaper than other brands with the same specs.

Weaknesses:    Weak front derailleur, not shifting smoothly, overall a heavy bike compared with other models.

Bottom Line:   
A very nice and fast bike, if you could upgrade to a better derailleur and maybe a lighter front suspension fork, this is one bike you'll enjoy riding.

Strengths:    Great bike, at an awesome price for a 29er.

Weaknesses:    Stock Derailers are a little weak and its worth the extra $100 to upgrade them before you even take the bike out the shop door.

Bottom Line:   
Overall Great bike, derailers are only a minor issue.
