Strengths:    Cost, sturdy frame, light responsive breaks, front suspension.. basically the bike is it's own strength.

Weaknesses:    None discovered yet

Bottom Line:   
This bike has been used and abused -- from boring road rides to the more rigorous trails in the mountains surrounding Phoenix, AZ (South Mountain, The 100, McDowell Mountains etc), and biking to work most days through what I call "The Thorn Highway" because of the dead bushes I ride though.

I have only ever taken it back to where I bought it once. That was to get some routine maintenance done -- Jaanus offers a year of free service, so I had to take advantage of that!! Otherwise, I have had no reason to get it looked at.

This bike is very solid, very good value for money; easily comparable to bikes that cost several hundred dollars more.

If you are after a bike that can stand some intermediate to moderately advanced wear-and-tear in all conditions but do not want to splurge (unnessecarily IMHO) on a product that has a known name but uses the same components, the Monsoon is the right bike for you.
