    Strengths:    Rock solid. Gears. Saddle is well comfy.

    Weaknesses:    WEIGHT. Front shocks are a bit naff (elastomer). Rear wheel buckled after too many kerb jumps. Takes a front disc brake, but no rear.

    Bottom Line:   
    A good bike, but by god, it's heavy. If you are planning on climbing some hills, then get several hundred helium balloons strapped to you to help out!

    Strengths:    tough as you like. fat Ritchey tires. "stumpy" headset wicked shimano 8speed acera gear levers

    Weaknesses:    heavy & not very nimble .. generic brakes & cassette / stupid thumb guard things on the handlebar grips.

    Bottom Line:   
    I don't really know what this bike is supposed to be: looks a bit like a stunt bike crossed with a xc bike but has the riding position of a hybrid if put the saddle up.

    It rides like a huge touring monster with the wide handlebars, "stumpy" stem and cheap Zokes (not Marzochi)shocks that look like vert shocks that just plough thru whatever the landscape throws at ya! (I think the shocks are supposed to be adjustable but twiddle the caps as much as you like and there's no difference.)

    With the brake blocks only half worn the unbranded v-brakes were rubbing on the tire grips when I was braking because they actually taper in at the top. I bought some acera v-brakes for a tenner which sorted it out.

    Conclusion: good looking matt black corrosion proof bigfoot handle bars & seat stem. Tough Ritchey hubs & tires.
    A heavy frame. A competent entry level bike.

    Strengths:    good light yet solid frame.
    Front fork travel.
    All of the bolt on bits, saddle, gearset et al!

    Weaknesses:    yet to find them (oh, yeah, apart from the silly thumb guards on the grips that prevent you from catching your thumbs on the gear shifts!!...cut 'em off, they keep catching the gear changes and affecting changes

    Bottom Line:   
    It's the first foray I've had into 'serious' mountainbiking, albeit the cheap end. I have to say, as value for money goes, I don't believe this package can be beaten.
