Submitted by Jake Margolin a Cross Country Rider from Carmiel, Israel

Date Reviewed: June 1, 2005

Strengths:    I chose this bike, as it was recommended as having better features than the Merida Fireball. Both of them are similar in price.

Weaknesses:    It's not the bike's fault, but I think that the way it's built, it's a bit small for me. I'm almost five feet, eleven inches, and I ordered the 19 in. model. When pedaling uphill, I feel that my arms are bent too much. (or maybe that's good exercise for them)

Bottom Line:   
I have little experience, but it seems to me that this is one of the best possibilities for full suspension with relatively little money.
