Strengths:    Very light for bike in this price range. All around great deal, Great looking and great to ride

Weaknesses:    Havent found any yet but will repost if i find any. The only thing i havent loved about it is that the stock grips are like ice when riding with sweaty hands, so new grips or gloves are recommended.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the money, rides much better than the Trek i rode and is obviously a much better bike than the Mongoose. Perfect for someone who needs a FS MTB for under $1000 that rides really nice, is light and looks great.

Strengths:    Great frame and components. All sealed bearings in suspension pivots and beefy square stays.

Weaknesses:    Only available in black.

Bottom Line:   
I looked at a lot of bikes before purchasing this one. The components and frame can`t be beat for the price. I really liked the Titus but I got a whole bike for about 1/2 of what just the Titus frame cost!

Similar Products Used:   Titus, Ellsworth

Bike Setup:   I set mine up pretty much as it came out of the box. I changed the grips and put on a different set of tires and eggbeater clipless pedals. I might upgrade the fork after awhile to a longer travel model. I wish I had known Motobecane was coming out with the Motobecane Fantom DS Elite since it already has the adj. travel frt and rear shock.
