Strengths:    The bike is very strong and sturdy and hard to ever damage

Weaknesses:    the bike is way too heavy for taking up hills. The bike was very poorly designed and could have been made so much better. The water bottle holder is under the bike so it gets really dirty. Breaks are also starting to give out very quickly.

Bottom Line:   
Its an alright bike if u want to start mountain biking but it is very poorly designed and really really heavy. I would go for a different bike if u were looking at mountain bikes.

Strengths:    Strong, solid, flawless gear setup, looks great!

Weaknesses:    Super soft fork, expensive without discounts

Bottom Line:   
Very nice bike for anyone who want to upgrade from hard trail. Looks awesome (Heads were turning as I went down the dike), very strong (Went to a DH bike park during camping, jump off a 8ft. cliff, nothing happen), and very reliable (Nothing broke except for the front tire). Only problem is that it's kind of pricey and the fork is junk...(Travel half way down even I brake genitally, bottom out very easily.)

Strengths:    strong components, disc brakes, shifts easily.

Weaknesses:    a tad bit heavy, I learned to ride on my friends Giant Warp DS 1 which was about 6 lbs lighter. The Warrior would be around the 36-37 lb range.

Bottom Line:   
Great looking bike and amazing price. Adjustable suspension lets you tune the bike to your riding style. It handles almost anything you can throw at it. Weight is the only issue i have with the bike especially if i do some longer trails. But the heavier weight will get you stronger so eventually it wont be a big deal. Front tire is beefy, 26x2.35 which is bigger than you will find on bikes much more expensive.

Date Reviewed: June 11, 2009

Strengths:    Very strongly built
Good 5" rear travel
Easy to control (jumps, switchbacks)
Decent parts


Weaknesses:    Slightly on the heavy side
Squeaky rear suspension pivots/joints


Bottom Line:   
Very strong bike. Survived a few crashes (head on a tree) and escaped with just minor scratches on the frame.

17" frame Geometry fit me (183cm tall) perfectly. I am able to bunny hop and easily lift up my front in trails and during downhill.

It is slightly heavy to be used in uphill / XC with a lot of climbs but the weight is an added advantage to make the bike steady during downhill.

I love this bike a lot...

Submitted by slap8up a Weekend Warrior from Melbourne, FL. USA

Date Reviewed: April 17, 2009

Strengths:    Solid frame, Simple single pivot rear suspension, 5 inches of travel, Fox Vanilla-R rear shock, Sram x-9 trigger shifters, FSA Gamma Drive with Mega-Exo bottom bracket, light weight

Weaknesses:    Wellgo pedals, Weak rear sprig rate, Squishy front suspension

Bottom Line:   
A whole lotta bike for the buck. I purchased mine new on Ebay at a huge discount. I'm a 6'0" 200 lb. rider who does a lot of dirt jumping and this bike performs better than I expected. The front and rear spring rates leave a lot to be desired for a heavier rider, but overall it's a great buy. I've taken some 8 to 10 foot drops on mine no problem. Great entry level dual suspension bike for someone looking to upgrade from a hard tail.

Strengths:    Strong frame, decent weight, and good geomtry

Weaknesses:    Rear hub and freewheel assembly has complications.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike that is very rigid but with excellent handling and fit. Can take a beating from a very abusive 6'-2" 280lb guy going off some 4 footer drops. Great for those who are already into MTB, but are looking to upgrade from the dept. store hardtail, or wanna be full suspension. Its also a really good overall entry bike.

My 09' Iron Horse Warrior 4.5

It's been a while since I posted up here. I sold my 05" Cannondale Prophet a while back but recently I've decided I needed another full suspension in my life to help me get into better shape and breath some fresh air. I just bought this over the weekend for $350. It's not the best deal, but I talked ... Read More »
