Strengths:    progressive suspension travel, minimal brake jacking due to cat trac design.

Weaknesses:    main pivot bearing wears out sooner than desired. frame cannot handle riders above 200 lbs.

Bottom Line:   
The frame is a bit long and so is the rear swing arm. the head tube angle is about 1 degree more relaxed which makes it great on fast sections but not so easy in tight sections. really this frame works out the best when it's fast with jumps and rough rhythm. Looking closely the design is very very similar to tomac 204, and frankly feels like the 204 but lighter. i'm not a fan of single pivot but this is one of the frames that i really enjoy riding on. the progressive rear end is designed quite well, it feels bottomless.

Strengths:    feels amazing, rides amazing.. the most amazing downhill bike ive even gotten on. this thing rails in corners and is tough stuff, i beat it into the ground and its still going strong.

Weaknesses:    der hanger could use another bolt holding it on, but thats all.

Bottom Line:   
If you like going fast and can get your hands on one of these, and dont mind that they are out of buisness it be worth it.. these bikes are amazing and beautiful at that. anyone whos ever ridden my bike has said the same. This is a downhill bike, not a freeride bike, people who use these bikes for other then what they are made for are obviously going to break them- plain and simple.

Strengths:    Suspension Design

Weaknesses:    Pivot Bearings on the swing arm weak. Must be replaced after every couple of rides. Rear linkage weak.

Bottom Line:   
The frame worked well as long as I was willing to put the time and money into fixing the bearings every few weeks. When I finally broke the rear linkage I sent the frame back to Cheeta and still have not gotten the replacement. The guys at Cheeta have lied repeatedly to me and then they went out of business. To anyone thinking about buying a ProLine or any Cheeta for that matter dont. The company no longer exists.
