Submitted by Jarrod a Cross Country Rider from Va, USA

Date Reviewed: October 13, 2002

Strengths:    Super Rigid and Lite (like 23 lbs if that much) as a feather

Weaknesses:    None that I know of


Bottom Line:   
Beast bike. Climbs like nobodys business. Stiff and lite enough to jump off anything. Seat is a bit stiff but you get used to it. get rid of Rock Shox crap and put on some Marzocchi shocks and be done with it. Ive jumped it off 3'+ rock ledges and she takes em like its nothin. Great bike. 4 flaming terds for value because somethings, the forks, could be better, and 5 for a kickass bike

Date Reviewed: November 5, 1999

Strengths:    
The rear of the bike is really ridged, and for a bike only cost me $1000 Canadian.


Weaknesses:    
The rims that come with the bike are not that great. (SUN CR18)


Bottom Line:   
a great buy. You're not going to get anything better for $1000 Canadian here in Canada. It can use some help with the wheels. The rims are not strong enough.
I also changed the tires, from the Maxxis to a Michelin Lite S in the rear and a Specialized Dirt Control in the front. I had to change the pedals as well since the things that came on it sucked. The thing to do is go to the Time pedals.
