Weaknesses:    wheels are way too weak, for weight reasons, replaced the rear wheel and front still holds up.

Bottom Line:

Strengths:    It is rather strong. I haven't had any problems with the frame yet, and it has taken some pretty good spills. I'm not sure how long it would last with a pro though.

Weaknesses:    Like i said the frame is pretty good and pretty light, but the fork is cheap. It lasted one spill on a jump. The factory rims are rather cheap. All the other parts one the bike seem okay.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the money. A little on the smaller size, but im 6'6" and i dont have anyproblems riding it. I would recomend this bike for beginers or intermiadte riders. i just wouldn't trust the rims or the fork to last too long. it your a jumper at least
