Strengths:    Smooth shifting, frame can take a beating

Weaknesses:    Components (rims especially) could use an upgrade, but you can make do with the stock

Bottom Line:   
Great ride for weekend riding and occasional racing. Friend just purchased an $1100 Specialized that has been giving him fits. Tires are slick on mud, or leafy trails. For the price it can't be beat!

Strengths:    strong, well spec'd for the $, reliable.

Weaknesses:    You might want a better fork. Not light or trick enough to race, but racers don't buy $300 bikes!

Bottom Line:   
I love my bike! I got a good deal on the fork- much better than the jett (or indy s) that came stock. My bike is a '98 closeout that I got for a song. I ride hard 1-2 times a week, it has never let me down. Mostly Shimano, some no-name or Mongoose components, all very capable- no problems. Great entry-level/intermediate ride out of the box. For better performance, upgrade fork and pedals. The frame and components are worthy. Mongoose makes real bikes, too, not just WalMart/Costco specials!
