Strengths:    cheap, decent frame,good for upgrading

Weaknesses:    garbage crank, garbage wheels

Bottom Line:   
After upgrading to all XT stuff, I realized how crappy the original stuff really wuz. But over all, a good bike for the price. Someone who goes hardcore on the trails, upgrade very soon. Original components will not be sufficient for this kind of abuse. However, they are good for those mostly doing city riding, and maybe some easy trails on the weekend.

Strengths:    Very good value for the price paid, as mentioned it would be wise to upgrade some components(derailleuers, brakes, shifters) but the frame and shocks are virtually indestructable, I rode this bike over 1500 kms in the time i owned it and it only broke once when i crashed it really hard( I blame it on a worn out chainring)

Weaknesses:    Cheap rims, some spots on frame lost the paint(easily remedied with a spot of rustproof)

Bottom Line:   
Great value and an extremely strong, rigid frame

Strengths:    Frame, gear set, overall balanced build, looks cool, very upgradable

Weaknesses:    Wheels, stock brakes, seat

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, like others have said if your gonna ride it hard upgrade the wheels, Beautiful finish on the DBS frame.
Have been riding the bike for 3 years now and its still a great bike. Just upgraded the wheel set to Mavick double walled-Deore hubs and brakes to Deore.
Was going to buy a new bike but what for, this bike is just too good to part with.
The stiffer wheels have made a whole new bike out of it.

Strengths:    The DBS makes for some serious style on the frame. There is an overall smooth ride and comfort with the slightly extended handle bars. The grips and gears are a nice touch up from the everyday cycle.

Weaknesses:    The rims are by far the weakest part of the bike. If possible, convert to double-wall rims at the time of purchase to save money on having to buy them later on (which you will end up doing anyway).

Bottom Line:   
This is a very strong and durable bicycle. Other than its weaknesses, this bike has many good attributes for the price one has to pay. With its awesome value, one can customize this bicycle to their own personal preferences at a fraction of the cost of the high-end models.

Strengths:    This bike not only looks cool, but it has great components (mostly..). The breaks and the transmission are great for the price.

Weaknesses:    The Rigida rims. The day I got the bike and assembled it, I got into a minor crash. I was going about 10 mph and rear wheel popped slightly out of the stay (the fault of the shop who assembled the bike for me) and I took a spill. Everything was ok except for the front wheel, it was taco'd so bad, I had to disconnect the brake to roll it back to the shop. The shop guy ended up replacing it with a new ZAC 19 up front. This bike needs a rear brake booster for the flex.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for the money. Even after two weeks of almost daily riding, the brakes will lock up the wheel and put the bike into a skid. Just be carefull with the wheels. I'm going to replace the rear wheel as soon as possible before it gets thrashed too. I just need that and a brake booster for the rear. (Any suggestions are welcome) I think this bike is great for beginners and people that don't jump off cliffs. You shouldn't buy this bike if you're into downhills, slalom, or serious jumping. At least, not until you get new wheels.
