Date Reviewed: July 7, 2002

Strengths:    Excellent component selection for the price. Very high spec for price - almost comparable to Giant for true value for money.

Weaknesses:    Frame welds cracked twice in 6 months on subframe behind bottom bracket. Bike was only used for training and racing up to 60 miles distances - no freeriding, obviously a design fault - no mountain bike should crack here.

Bottom Line:   
Apparently every one of these bikes sold in Chch, NZ, has broken in the same place - apart from ones that never left the tarmac and only get ridden infrequently. Save yourself the hassle - don't go there.

Strengths:    Good frame, nice rear travel,

Weaknesses:    All other components CRAP!!!

Bottom Line:   
If you buy this bike as it in shop, it's a good bike for easy trails. If you want more, like extreme freeride or downhill, some upgrades is necesary.

Strengths:    Very strong and light and fairly beat proof

Weaknesses:    needs a few small upgrades

Bottom Line:   
The bike is light and fairly low travel but I've pased downhillers at Big Bear on it, so it is very strong. It starts as decent in componentry but it will hold together but upgrade if you ever happen to break something. Soaks up lots of bumps and handles well. Only problems with it have been on my part. This should be for people who like being able to go uphills to as rough a downhill as Big Bear courses. Not too rocky stuff though!
