Strengths:    This bike is higly durable against dirt buildup and corrosion for the terrain I use it on. The suspension has outstanding performance for the thick gravel and dirt I ride on.

Weaknesses:    Stock gear ratio is a little weak for what I am looking for. Thinking up upgrading...

Bottom Line:   
Good quality bike for the beginner trail rider or for someone who rides through gravel and dirt all day and sees no roads made of asphalt...

Strengths:    This bike is very strong, the frame give you the capabilities to upgrade with nicer parts which make this bike even better. I have this bike for about a year, and I this bike have done the job. I have ridden this bike in almost all kind of mt terrain from non technical to technical trails.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness of this bike is the rear shock, it broke a few weeks ago, since it is an entry level shock and I took it to the over the limit. The bike feels heavy with all the stock parts, but becomes lighter with nicer parts.

Bottom Line:   
I have the 2004 model, so far I am satisfied with the performance of the bike. It have a nice frame, the components are entry level and can be upgrade for nicer and lighter ones. The bike is a very good beginner bike. I think that the only weakness of this bike is the rear suspension. I will recommend this bike for people that are getting into the sport. This bike is meant to be for cross country and it should be ridden as a cross country bike, NO Free Style or DH.

Strengths:    Only good thing was cheap price.

Weaknesses:    Everything!!! The shifting is crap and the bike is cheaply made!!

Bottom Line:   
Save your money and get something better!! Its not worth it if you really want to hit the single track. You'll end up spending all your time and money getting it fixed. I'm getting a new bike next year ;-)
