Strengths:    A Proper Mountain Bike for a child

Weaknesses:    Gone through 3 Derailers,(Stock Derailer is hopeless)

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike,it is a little go-er.I have had it for 4+ years plus know and I Have thrown it down stairs(when I was angry) and it has put up with rainy season of Walgett(Outback NSW). The frame is very strong and sturdy for the amount of money I got it for. The only down-side to it was the amount of derailers I have been through,I guess it isn't the bikes fault it is more the manufacturers of the derailer. I have now upgraded to Sram SX4 which is working a treat and i hope will for a while.

Submitted by Mike a Cross Country Rider from Diamond Creek, Australia

Date Reviewed: September 24, 2007

Strengths:    It was one of the few "real" mountainbikes available for kids- very few in Aus with triple chainrings. Has not broken anything in 18months of riding.

Weaknesses:    Weight kids bikes always seem to be very heavy- I guess it's due to lower spec on parts
Grip shift - Al of 24" bikes that I saw when looking had grip shift - he'll get used to that and then change over to rapifire and start learning all again


Bottom Line:   
This is a reasonable bike that I bought my son when he turned 7. He is tall so managed to skip from 16' straight to 24". Have done quite a few reasonable trails in the time since. Godd for boys at this age point although i don't know how long it will last once he gets a bit more agressive in his riding
