Strengths:    This bike has a very strong frame and is very hard to break Perfect for a weekend enthosiust and begining riders. Good brakes and tires. I have had no real troubles with this bike before and it has been ridden hard. Good price

Weaknesses:    Th gears on the bike could be better. Junky tubes, I stoped using the stock brand after popping 3 of them in the first 1 1/2 years on the bike.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for anyone who is going to be using it for street and trail riding. It is not for the very serious rock and down hill riders.

Strengths:    Built like a Hummer, and with the same climbing ability, provided you like to really mash the petals. Pretty hard to damage/destroy unless you're doing some serious technical terrain or downhill, in which case you shouldn't be on this bike anyway. I use it for XC training in the city, and it works fine -- the extra weight only helps build those muscles. Smooth ride.

Weaknesses:    The cranks aren't exactly pro-caliber, but are good for the price. Handling is a little squirrelly due to the geometry.

Bottom Line:   
Well built novice/hybrid bike that doesn't mind being ridden hard, either on the trail or through pothole-ridden parkng lots.
