Date Reviewed: March 29, 2009

Strengths:    It holds together really good. I was pretty tough on this bike and it held up great. I did a little bit of everything with it, the fact that it was a hardtail did not stop me! i did everything including downhill,jumping,cross country,and just casual bike rides with my friends.

Weaknesses:    The front shocks do not work very good, this might have just been a problem with mine but maybe they are all like that.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for a low budget,it handles great and is a great hybrid.

Date Reviewed: October 18, 2005

Strengths:    Solid construction, threadless headset, good tires, brakes work well.

Weaknesses:    Rear deraileur, gearing.

Bottom Line:   
My five year old son has had a lot of fun on this bike. He jumps up to two foot high jumps, does some small drops, and rides over logs up to eight inches in diameter. Weight is reasonable. Bike has held up well except for the factory deraileur, which is made mainly of plastic. Chain kept jumping off, and plastic stops broke from landing jumps. Upgraded deraileur to Acera, and bike has worked like a charm since. Would like to see lower gearing (36 tooth chainring instead of 40 tooth). Overall, nice bike. Good buy for someone who's child is into serious mountain biking.

Date Reviewed: April 30, 2005

Strengths:    Shimano drivetrain (6 speeds help with climbing). Cool Silver/Black paint job. Light <26lbs alloy frame. 65mm fork.

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
Great 1st MTB, not too heavy like previous dept. store "anvil". A kid shouldn't have to ride something that weighs almost the same as the rider (daddy doesn't ride a 125lb bike, so why should I ride a 38 pounder?. Just about everything can be adjusted like a "big boy" bike (exception: no QR on the wheels). This bike makes riding trails fun!

Osprey Packs Raptor 10 Hydration 2012 Close Out

In doing some quick research, the Osprey Raptor 10 looks like the pack for me. The 2013 model has had some upgrades to the 2012 model. But REI is having a closeout of the 2012 for $65. That's almost half off compared to the new model. Is the new model that much better? For $65 is the 2012 kind of st ... Read More »

New Raptor 14 Osprey

I pm'd this link to Jenson and got the new 2013 Madcap red Raptor 14. About half off. Before I ordered it, I compared the Raptor 14 to the new Mule NV at REI and thought this was much nicer than the Mule. A bit lighter too.

2013 Camelbak MULE NV vs 2013 Osprey Raptor 14

I am trying to decide between a 2013 Camelbak MULE NV and a 2013 Osprey Raptor 14. I like the zipper on the hipbelt pockets and the two side pockets on the Raptor. But I prefer the MULE's rain cover over the Raptor's tool pouch. I also like the MULE's D-Fit suspension. I guess I will have to try ... Read More »
