Strengths:    I'm Not Sure About The Weaknesses Of The Shimano BB-UN 26 Bottom Bracket Due To The One On My Giant Warp DS 2 Has Been On That Bike For The 10+ Years That I've Had The Bike. I've Ridden That Bike All Over New York City. I've Ridden In Pennsylvania And I've Never Had A Problem. I'm Looking Into Upgrading The Drivetrain Up To A 9 Speed So I'll Get A New Bottom Bracket To Go With The New Drive train And Hopefully

Weaknesses:    None So Far

Bottom Line:   
All In All I Have Had A Very Good Experience With The Product.

Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    No strenghts

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to upgrade to a full suspension bike as I ride old logging railroad cuts throughout Pa and at 53 years old why beat myself up. The In Gear people have been great to me for more than 20 years and they pointed out a brand new 2006 Cannondale Prophet that had been in the box at a dealer that went bankrupt. Being as old as I am they know that the most I will huck is probably a 2 footer and that I never get out of the 22 chain ring. They also have ridden with me and know that these old logging railroad cuts take you to some pretty wild areas of Pa but they consider what I do hiking with a mountain bike and they know I climb a lot so the Prophet would be a good match up. The bike is great for me but the Shimano BB-UN26 bottom bracket is pure crap. I have a Phil Wood that has been on four mountain bikes and has never made a noise. Three areas you should never use 14 dollar parts on, your headset, your bottom bracket, and your pedals.
