Strengths:    nice front shock, they upgraded mine cause teh old one ewas defecctive

Weaknesses:    FRAME BROKE!! it lasted about a year then i noticed the break near teh crankset at teh weld. still tryin to get a new frame....or a new bike.

Bottom Line:   
dont bother buying this. it was nice while it lasted, but that wasnt long. the frame broke with out doin any big drops, only about 3 or four feet. I treated this bike with care and yet some things just break. the deraileor isnt that great in the back either, they are replacing that too.

Date Reviewed: March 1, 2002

Strengths:    None for 2002 but 2001 is ausom
2001 has ausom components for an even ausomer price
sokes up the rockeyest terrain
takes the big hits
made in the USA

Weaknesses:    2002 is severly degraded in component quality
in 2001 the rock shox psylo dosent take the small hits as well as the big ones
not a good bike for a tall rider you cant get an extra large frame
week in the rear triangle
i broke one but it was repared all expenses paid with no hastle
not enough room for the rear tire it grabs the chain

Bottom Line:   
buy the 2001 model and you will be very happy
change to a smaller rear tire but keep the wilderness trail moto raptor on the front it guids the bike well
