Strengths:    Its really light, yet strong, able to handle really hard riding, great for urban riding, gears shift with no problem, no wrench is required to take the wheels off

Weaknesses:    If left sitting in storage for the winter it will need a little bit of tuning

Bottom Line:   
this is a great bike, very light and strong, able to hold up to a lot of abuse (which i tend to really abuse my bike and use them in ways theyre not intended to be used) gears shift with no problems, good breaking, and rides pretty smooth on rough ground

FELT LONG AND TALL, THE MESA, IN A 19IN., FELT LOW AND
QUICK AND IS A WHEELING MACHINE. BOTH HAD ABOUT THE SAME
PARTS GROUP LEVEL AND PERFORMED GREAT, MESA HAD BETTER
FEELING BRAKES, HARDROCK HAD BETTER TIRES, THE MESA JUST
FELT MORE LIKE A RIPPING SINGLETRACK MACHINE, THE HARDROCK
WAS A HUCKSTER........MESA IS MY KILLER TRAIL BIKE!!!!!!!

Date Reviewed: October 1, 2003

Strengths:    Brakes, Frame, Rims and basic construction are top notch.

Weaknesses:    Factory spring is a little soft.

Bottom Line:   
Great balance and steering. Brakes super. It was a toss up between the Giant iguana and the mesa. But the mesa was on sale and got a sweet deal. Overall a great bike. I use it to commute M-F and Singletrack the weekends. I would recomend the giant to a first time rider and don't want to spend the $750 for the mesa at full price, but if you are into riding this is the bike to have.

Date Reviewed: July 21, 2003

Strengths:    Frame Geometry - small and light, Deore group set with LX jockey, Richey weel set and headset.

Weaknesses:    None so far. There are mixed reviews on the shock, but been fine so far.

Bottom Line:   
Great frame geometry, slanted top tube. Tight and strong. Be careful, frames are really small. Feels like it has a lower centre to gravity. Great to use on trail and xc rides. Got a real sporty look and there's no real need to upgrade. GREAT BIKE!
