Strengths:    Well frame is all that i kept but it is very sturdy great geometry. big and beafy tubing!!!

Weaknesses:    the only one so far is that the chain stays are a just a little too long. a little harder to manual than my last frame.

Bottom Line:   
the parts that came on it were absolutly horrid. if you plan on any hard riding such as big dirt jumps or street riding change parts immeadiatly. they probably wouldnt last threw one ride. frame is probably the best one out there for price.

Strengths:    Frame, good beginner bike, nice look

Weaknesses:    Shifter, chain, cassette, rear derailleur, crank, breaks, rims, hubs... ;-)

Bottom Line:   
If you've just started to explore the bicycle world, this is the perfect bike for you. Because of the lack of knowledge you won't even notice the poorness of several parts.
At least you are able to ride some novice trails.
But if you get caught by cycling you'll have to upgrade some of the parts. In my case, it were especially the fork, rims, hubs and the brakes.

Strengths:    solid frame, good brakes, and sweet looking

Weaknesses:    I have ridden it for almost 2 years and i will need to replace the crank soon. I will probably get rid of the heavy stock fork as well.

Bottom Line:   
I think its a pretty solid bike for downhill, trail riding, and a great commuter. I think Instead of the YZ3 i would have spent a little more for a yz2 or 1 but with a few upgrades this can be a sweet bike that will last.

Strengths:    Frame is sturday and takes alot of abuse

Weaknesses:    where to start, stock fork is rubbish, stock tires are rubbish as well and after a while the cassete got really crapped up and u could barely change gears i spent like £250 to get this working properly

Bottom Line:   
Great Frame let down by other components a good bike to buy if you can afford to do it up dont buy it if u dont want to spend alot of money on it afterwards get an 2006 Ironhorse Warrior Pro Great Bike but its £500 more expensive

Strengths:    Solid frame which has taken a fair amount of abuse. It is well balanced and gives a responsive feel going downhill without being twitchy.

Weaknesses:    It is heavey, the crankset it comes with is cheep and the teeth wear down in months

Bottom Line:   
You get what you pay for, a good value bike which has a frame which will take whatever a novice can throw at it
