a Cross Country Rider
from Jacksonville, FL, USA
Date Reviewed: October 25, 2000
Strengths: Great bike for the price! It is fairly light and is a great entry level bike.
Weaknesses: Front fork is weak! An upgraded fork (I upped to a Marzochii Bomber) was the best thing/only thing it needed. Clear coat on the frame started peeling after 1 year. However, they did warranty out the frame b/c of it.
Great bike for the money. It rides kinda "funky". It is stiff and slightly bouncy.The frame is tough. I crashed this thing off loading docks as well as crashing into other riders at full speed head on. My bike was fine each time. Upgrade the fork and you got yerself a nice entry level ride.
