Strengths:    Very cheap, strong, can be used as downhill bike with little modifcations. Very comfortable saddle. Strong sram x9.

Weaknesses:    Frame isn't working as it should, when you put big pressure on the pedals (espacially with hard pedalling), the rear triangle is going to the sides. If you have a chainguide the tire will hit it and slow you down. Second thing about the frame is that it has some problems with fabric bearings, I had to send it four times to the distributor till it was finally good. Brakes aren't good for long and steep trails, during my first time in mountains on the third run they weren't working and then linkage exploded form the pressure. Next thing is small distance between rear wheel and frame so if you get in big mud it can rip your paint/lacquer off. 2.5 is the maximum lenght of the tire and it fits in hardly. The handle bar is strong but pretty short for todays standard. Stem is good for AM/XC but for nothing harder than that. The bearing in both wheels aren't long living parts, I had to change them after a year.

Bottom Line:   
If you want to ride some freeride better think about some small chainguide and abandon second gear on the front because the chain falls down all the time. For that money I couldn't find anything better and i am happy i chose it. Despite of some problems, he handles everything I throw at him. There is no worries for big drops . Rims are pretty light and strong against hiting everything normally, but if you attack them from the sides they will break immediately.

Strengths:    frame.
all good really.
great maneuverability and response

Weaknesses:    suspension is a bit short off its actual travel rating of 160mm, more like 140mm. but still ok if you set it up right. breaks are ok could be better. ive taken it off 10foot drops no problems done a table top with a 15-20foot gap all sweet as.

Bottom Line:   
Great, Fun and reasonably cheap bike for thrashing around, and good for a bit of light DH and free ride.

I recommend this bike for someone who is looking for a bike that is not to bad in the wallet, and is reliable and takes to just about any thing you put in front of it!

Strengths:    Everything!
Frame is bombproof (10ft drops!)
Fork can handle everything if tuned right (light DH, all freeride, DJ)
bash guard is sweet
x9 is fast and responsive
rims are very reliable
fox van r is perfect...i love it!

Weaknesses:    NONE!
the only thing that has bothered me over the last 3 months are the grips. the stock ones wear down to the metal, so now i need to replace them.

Bottom Line:   
if you are looking for an excellent quality bike for a low cost, this is the right bike. Is has all the same features as the big name companies for thousands less. Get it!
