Date Reviewed: November 6, 2006

Strengths:    It climbs fast and over anything, easy to lift your bars over obstacles. It can handles going down really steep gradients. Just lean back over the seat.

Weaknesses:    fast smooth tracks going downhill, the steering isn't as responsive or manuvourable as other bikes.

Bottom Line:   
I have become addicted to technical climbs. Tou must be able to climb and go over obstacles at the same time as your climbing on the tracks near my house. This bike is a beast going downhills as well.
If your're looking at a racing bike, don't buy this bike. However if your going to buy an xc hardtail that you can abuse this is a great bike.
Make sure you buy from a good dealer. The service and attitude of the Fuji MTB shop in Seoul is absolutely terrible.

Date Reviewed: June 2, 2005

Strengths:    light,easy to master,resistent to all terrain, front suspension absorb very well, incredible tires, wonderful look, confortable position for medium size

Weaknesses:    relatively stiff with rocky terrain

Bottom Line:   
it's a splendid bike for the long desert tracks, as well the demanding alps tracks. you just don't get tired of riding it! I have a 17 inc model and on rocky terrain tends to transmit quite a bit to the posterior trail. It' s the perfect first real bike, and for the lovers of hard trail it's a pleasure to ride.

Date Reviewed: April 5, 2005

Strengths:    Good parts compared to its price. (In Korea, that is..)
Light, durable, strong.
I weight about 240lbs.. no problem for me so far..


Weaknesses:    The manitou axel fork that comes along w/ the bike is too plush. I asked around and found out that the stock spring is for people w/ weight of around 170lbs or less.. and it doesn't have a lockout feature..

Bottom Line:   
get a nicer front fork and you're good to go..
no need for further upgrades..

Fork change on Santa Cruz Bullit?

Just a question, has anyone tried putting a 6" fork on an '01 Santa Cruz Bullit? I was considering it, but I'm worried the angles will kill the headtube.Read More »
