Strengths:    Great Bike. It will go up any hill you can pedal and will go down the other side if you can hang on.

Weaknesses:    X5 componets and the FSA crank

Bottom Line:   
This is a great full suspension all mountain bike. I have ridden this bike on downhill courses with no problems and no bottom outs where most all others have 8"+ of travel.

Strengths:    Stong, Stiff, Great geometry for all mountain riding.

Weaknesses:    Bit hefty frame weight but not noticable on the trail. Could do with a shock upgrade.

Bottom Line:   
I built this bike up from scratch to use for some trail riding, light downhill and try it out on the 4X.
I was impressed with how comfy this bike is to ride considering the rear shock has little adjustment and that the weight didn't feel like an issue.
It even jumps well. the only downside is it's a little heavy for 4X but a lighter build would help.
It puts up with a heap of punnishment and still goes for more. In it's price bracket it's the best all rounder bike you'll find if only they kept making them.

Date Reviewed: December 23, 2009

Strengths:    super strong frame. takes a beating everytime i give it one. Endless grip in the rear. shifts quicker than my other full suspension bikes. much tougher than my treks

Weaknesses:    hydraulic brakes make it difficult to change pads (but with the stopping power it gives i can't complain). would be nice if there was o guard on the crank. pedals suck

Bottom Line:   
i love this bike. by far it is the toughest bike i have ever had the chance to ride. i like downhill which the bike can handle without a problem but where i live there isn't much chance for me to get some downhill action so i ride mostly xc when the downhill season is over. the bike handle's well on the long all day rides through snow and rain. i think it is great for beginners new to downhill riding. happy with mine, i would recommend it to anyone

Strengths:    Indestructable frame
vanilla R
FSA crankset


Weaknesses:    No cust support. Iron horse is out of business :(
BB5 Mech. Brakes
Sorta heavy (35.6 lbs.)


Bottom Line:   
The bottom line: I wasnt expecting much from this bike because i was new to the iron horse brand. It has exceeded my expectations on every level. The thing climbs like nothing. It will take whatever you throw at it and come back for more. i would recommend this bike to beginners who are just getting into riding AM or a seasoned vet who doesnt want to blow 5-6 grand on a bike when they can spend 5-6 hundred and get a product that is almost exact in quality. Get em before theyr'e all gone!!!

Strengths:    Great bike for the beginning mtn biker. Not bad for the $$$.

Weaknesses:    Not a heavy bike, but not the lighest either. Really wish the front fork had a lockout feature!

Bottom Line:   
I am very pleased with this bike. It has held up very well on my rides. Just had it's maintenance done and there were no problems with the bike. Will be looking into a few upgrades next year but otherwise I would recommend this bike to the new rider in search of an economical mtn bike that can handle the trail.

Strengths:    seems to be a solid bike. climbs easily and takes a beating everytime i get a chance to ride it with no problem.

Weaknesses:    it is heavy. the weight doesn't seem to affect the climbs but it sure does feel heavy when you have to get off and carry the bike uphill.

Bottom Line:   
if money wasn't an issue then i would have sprung for the specialized or yeti but now that i have been riding the 6.0 with no problems i'm glad i didn't. i would recommend this bike to anyone.

Strengths:    Climbs much better than I expected. Affordable and sturdy.

Weaknesses:    Mainly its components. I had to replace the pedals and the crankset after the first few rides.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. I'm a little sad that I replaced some of the components so soon after I bought it(hence the four chilis) but the replacements only made the bike that much more better. If you are looking for an affordable bike to do some XC, All mountain and or light downhill riding then this ones for you.

Submitted by MikeStanfill a Weekend Warrior from Palmer, Alaska, USA

Date Reviewed: September 3, 2008

Strengths:    The Warrior 6.0 is a sturdy frame that comes with decent components. The single pivot system is low maintenance (good for people new to full suspension) and the geometry is perfect.

Weaknesses:    The rear shock is a piece of crap. It feels as if there's lag between when pressure is taken off of it to when the rebound dampening kicks in (even with the rebound turned all the way down) The for is a little soft, and feels as if the rebound adjustment nob is about to break off. The brakes are kind of weak, especially under a lot of pressure.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is great for beginners and handles well under speed, as well as in the air. It would be better if they threw a better fork and rear shock, but, hey, for the price I got it for, I'm happy with what I have.

Recommendation: Get front and rear air suspension.

Strengths:    Good components, good price, awesome looks.

Weaknesses:    Original spring on rear shoc too heavy (450lb. and I am 120lb.) No lockout on fork. Cruddy pedals.

Bottom Line:   
Everyone says the fork is bad, the brakes suck, and the single pivot is bad. I don't have much experience with other bikes, but this thing stops well enough, and who really cares about a few extra bumps? It is a great bike and I would reccomend it to a friend any day.

For the price, I love it. It climbs great in the saddle but gets a little mushy when standing. The 07 model has good looks too. Climbs well in the saddle and descends well with a couple mods.

Submitted by mtb_guy a Weekend Warrior from Boone, NC

Date Reviewed: July 3, 2008

Strengths:    Frame seems tough. Light enough to pedal up the mountain and it still has enough travel to bomb down the other side. Easy frame maintenance due to single pivot design. This bike is very versatile. Overall this is a great bike.

Weaknesses:    Main weakness, also somewhat of a benefit depending on your view, is the single pivot design. I prefer four bar designs. The component group on this bike is kind of weak, but not bad. Some of the welds look a little messy.

Bottom Line:   
If you are trying to ball on a budget then I have found no better bike. The versatility of this bike is its strong point. The bike has the travel for aggressive riding, but still climbs well enough to be taken on that day long ride in the back woods. So far I love mine.
