Strengths:    Strong frame, decent components, PRICE!

Weaknesses:    Single wall rims (wadaya want for the price?) cheap pedals.


Bottom Line:   
This bike is strong and light for the bucks. I got it on sale for $199.99 with a free $30 helmet. It take a pounding and keeps going. I am 230 lbs. and it holds up great on some tough trails here in Austin.
I highly recommend this bike to folks on a tight budget. The Crom-Moly frame is a perfect entry level bike that can be added to as the wallet permits.

Date Reviewed: June 13, 2000

Strengths:    Seemed like a solid all around bike

Weaknesses:    It's rigid, but some people still ride them.

Bottom Line:   
Fun bike to cruise on. It's not a single speed and it's not a true hardcore mountain bike, it's just in between stages.

2000 Trek 4500 vs new Diamondback Sorrento

I may have the chance to trade a new Sorrento for the 4500 if it's the right size. Would this be a good idea? I have no idea how the older components would compare.Read More »
