Strengths:    great down hill racer, good cross country. good rear spring.

Weaknesses:    heavy, original front forks are not all that good

Bottom Line:   
A great down hill racing bike and good for cross country
fitted with some road or semi-off road tires will do pretty good on road. The original front forks aren't good, but that can easily be fixed. but a big downside is the fact that it weighs a tone.

people who are decent enough down hill riders or cross country riders should get this bike, but if your looking for a road bike or an all rounder this isn't the bike for you.

i got it for great value on ebay
