Date Reviewed: January 7, 2003

Strengths:    Strong frame, reasonable components

Weaknesses:    No front suspension, combined shifters/brake levers

Bottom Line:   
This bike (or newer Rincons) is good for the casual rider wanting something better than a cheap and nasty bike. Nothing is particularly special about it but it will hold together for commuting and cross country riding.

I'm a heavy rider (~220lb) and give the bike a hard time, crashing into holes, rocks and logs and the bike has taken it all, no probs.
