Strengths:    Good price for an entry full susser. Good mix of components. Disc brakes.

Weaknesses:    The stock Sunrace crankset. Flexes too much and makes crankin too noisy. My LBS swapped out the cranks after my second visit and said he will try to get Univega to pay for them under warranty. The ShimanoXTs are much, much, better.

Bottom Line:   
I was an avid bike rider in my youth and lost the ambition to ride and stay in shape. After being diagnosed with diabetes at age 38 I got back into the fitness mode. I started to look around for a mountain bike that would fit my budget and was going to buy a Trek hardtail when my LBS owner showed me the full susser and since it is fully upgradable and affordable, I went for it.
Three months later and 25 pounds lighter, I am up to 10 miles every night and have most of my youthfull skills back again and this bike has taken all the punishment that I have given it. I would recommend this bike to anyone who is looking into getting an inexpensive full susser.
