Date Reviewed: November 8, 2006

Strengths:    Strong frame, very light it has good disks

Weaknesses:    when you pull up to do a weely really quickly the forks make a bit of a noise

Bottom Line:   
Its a very good bike for the price it could maybe do with some better forks but over all the forks are suberb if you just want to go offroading. If you just want a descent starter bike this is the one for you
