    Strengths:    It's a rather cheap bike, which does the job ok.

    Weaknesses:    High weight, low-end parts. The freewheel body froze all winter.

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought this bike to find out if I liked MTB XC racing. I've been ridin this bike for more than 18 moth now, and I'm still pretty happy with it. The only fik I have been doing, is to change the freewheel body.

    I give this bike 3 chilies, because you get what you pay for. Still pretty good value.
