Date Reviewed: March 11, 2002

Strengths:    light compared to my Huffy and my boyfriend's full suspension rock. The big saddle for my J-Lo butt.

Weaknesses:    At its first convenience it bodyslammed me in front of my boyfriend and a group of other weekend warriors.

Bottom Line:   
I like it for a starter bike. the next one I get will have front suspension.

Strengths:    sweet rigid frame. big frame with top tube bend to accomodate the short crotched man.

Weaknesses:    super cheap crank,promax brakes,suspension seatpost(junk)

Bottom Line:   
This is one of the sweetest rigid bikes ive ever ridden. By no means is this ready for the trails (too stiff) great commuter bike or for any paved or dirt road training. excellent for working on your cadence, and stamina. a good alt to a road bike.
