Strengths:    nice look, tough frame

Weaknesses:    the original components suck.

Bottom Line:   
Fun to ride now. Was loud when I first got it. I have bent a lot of rims, broke the derailleur hanger and waited a few weeks to get it replaced, cuz I'm in Korea. I'm not sure what it weighs now but it's fun to ride and takes a mild spanking. Good beginner's bike

Overall rating reflects my appreciation for the bike now that it's been upgraded. A MUST.

Submitted by David Warren a Weekend Warrior from Citrus Heights, CA 95621

Date Reviewed: July 3, 2002

Strengths:    Good frame design. Bushings have held up to a lot of mud and water crossings.

Weaknesses:    RST 281R fork is fine for gravel roads, but I would not recommend it for XC. SRAM 5.0 rear derailluer pivots wore out in the first year. Tektro V-brake did not have much power, although they did modulate well.

Bottom Line:   
Overall this bike would be best for someone who does occasional offroading. It will get you were you want to go, but you will have to work for it. The original bike was heavy and felt sluggish but did not bob going uphill if the preload was set fairly high. After all the updates, its much lighter, turns quick, shifts on command and stops were you want it.

The ratings I put in are for the original setup, as their if very little of the original bike remaining (seat, frame, shock).

Date Reviewed: March 31, 2001

Strengths:    good price, light and rear shocks are good especially for the price.

Weaknesses:    front shocks are to great the same with the Sram 5.0 I broke it in the first month. Probably because I ride hard.

Bottom Line:   
Good bike for the price. Get rid of those front shocks and the sram 5.0 and you got yourself a good bike. If you like to ride hard you can change the bike a little to fit your needs without it falling apart. This bike is good for the beginer biker and the weekend warrior.

Submitted by JIITEEE a Cross Country Rider from FINLAND

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2001

Strengths:    Frame- it is simple and light
Rear shock- good for the price


Weaknesses:    None so far ( only c. 100 km winter snowscooter-trail riding
in -5 to -10 degrees Celsius )


Bottom Line:   
I didn´t ride a single mile with the original set -up, so
I have no idea how it works. The set up today is about 12,5 kg ready-to-ride ( c. 26,5 lbs.), and it feels
nice both in uphills and downhills.

Lets see how it looks when I´ve done the whole next summer ( about 3000- 4000 km/summer usually ).
It was a good starting point to upgrade and i feel it is
still ( rear susp., bb- both quite heavy ).
Goog value for money. ( My chilis are for this set-up,
not for the original )

Date Reviewed: September 8, 2000

Strengths:    Good entry level FS.




Weaknesses:    The SRAM 5.0! Its worthless if your ride hard on advanced trails or in muddy conditions.

Bottom Line:   
Good first FS bike. Decent frame to start out with but would definitely recommend component upgrades. If you ride hard and on more difficult terrain than a dirt road I'd replace the SRAM 5.0 with something else. It doesn't handle mud well and is generally problematic on tough rides. The front derailler tends to skip down to the low gear ring/low gear when under stress and that can be disconcerting. The front fork seems fine and I have no complaints about that. Same for rear. Kenda Klaw tires okay in general. With the exception of te SRAM set up I'm very happy with this bike and certinly recommend it to anyone looking to move up to an FS.
