Strengths:    Durable
Handles well
Good components
Oustanding Value

Weaknesses:    A little heavy
No Disc brakes

Bottom Line:   
This bike is an outstanding value. This is an outstanding bike for beginners. It performed flawlessly on the trails today. I was impressed with the handling and the stock equipment. The tires were great. The fork could be better, but it performed none the less. I wish I had got the model with disc brakes, but I am not going to complain because the brakes held up well and got me through some tough rookie mistakes. The price of this bike is what makes it special. I do not think there are any other 400 dollar bikes that can outperform the Giant Revel 2. I am happy with the purchase and most importantly happy with the value of the product.

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It is extremely durable, handles really well, and has really exceeded my expectations. The only problem I have had with this bike is that everytime my front wheel spins, I hear a squeak. I will have this checked out at my Bike Checkup, but it seems all right. Great Bike!
