Strengths:    This is a fantastic bike. I have had it for around 2 years. I had a Specialized prior but this by far is much better. It is great a climbing hills and jams on the downhill.

Weaknesses:    I have had no issues with this bike

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great

Strengths:    Fit and finish of bike is pretty good. I kinda like it that it is a seldom-seen brand in my area. For 2011 the 29'er has a low-end Suntour fork which I think is a better product than Dart 1. I really like the hydraulic lockout which also functions as a variable compression damper.

Weaknesses:    Gruppo is about average for price point...and some marques can be had for a little less for the same equipment level. Avid bb5 brakes are adequate for an old fart like me, but a younger, faster rider would probably soon find them lacking.

Bottom Line:   
If you're after a basic bike to get out and ride, there are cheaper 29'ers. I chose a bike dealer rather than brand name, and took what I thought was the best offering in my general price range. So far I'm pleased.

Favorite Trail:   Cuyuna

Duration Product Used:   Less than 1 month

Price Paid:    $750.00

Purchased At:   Local bike shop

Similar Products Used:   Nothing recent, nothing in 29", nothing with any kind of disc brakes.

Bike Setup:   Standard factor parts so far. When fork goes south that will go, and I am considering different seats. The loaners I've tried so far aren't any better than the plain-vanilla seat bike came with.

Wanted to build this up for a commuter and general run-around-town bike. Will get another wheelset for some light trail duty as well, should b ... Read More »
