Strengths:    It's pretty...

Weaknesses:    The gear sucks, I had to get it fixed after two weeks of use. If you try to do some serious mountain you can't rely on it: the breaks don't always respond and the gear changes speed too slow. This week also the frame got broken. It is really amazing how dare to sell this bikes.

Bottom Line:   
I bought it because the price was reasonable and the bike looked good when I checked it at the store. But it's really amazing how dare to sell these bikes.

Strengths:    Price, feels strong.

Weaknesses:    Probably bottom end spec on components.

Bottom Line:   
Ok, so there are lots of really good bikes out there, BUT for $70 ...or as a present, what do you want???
This is a great entry level bike and would suit people wanting to get fit (bike weight won't be an issue), or looking to start off roading. I don't care if parts snap or fall off, as I will be upgrading the components as and when I want to - breakages will just force my hand a little. It gets me to where I wanna go in comfort and with speed, so I cant fault this bike at all.
Sure, front suspension would be nice but I can change that in the future. And if i decide I don't want to ride bikes (unlikely), then $70 ain't gonna hurt me!

Really strong frame

every thing-weight, wheels, brakes, componants

Bottom Line:   
This bike is very strong, but has a lead frame filled with concrete and is very heavy. Don't by it! Every thing with bearings in broke on mine. Why did i accept it as a presant? I would give it nothing if i could.
