Strengths:    Love the rims and front shocks very light brakes work excellent all the time

Weaknesses:    my feet slip off the pedals and the chain kinda klunks when im standing up and pedalling very hard

Bottom Line:   
bike is awsome light well built not for serious downhillers but its a great all around bike id upgrade my pedals and stop the chain from klunking and it would be perfect

Strengths:    Solid frame, great Marzocchi forks, simple but reliable brakes. Can't fault all the little things either!

Weaknesses:    None as yet!

Bottom Line:   
Great beginners bike. Perfect if you're curious about getting a little muddier on those weekend bike rides, and it'll last you a long time if you look after it too. Can take a fair bit of punishment, so all those knocks and falls are no problem.

Date Reviewed: October 4, 2008

Strengths:    ...

Weaknesses:    chain too large, stock forks are... horrible, rims are also horrible. very bad top cap, breaks very easily when installing new forks.

Bottom Line:   
it's basically NOT meant for downhill, but if its all you can afford, and are ready to buy replacement parts for it in a week if you are doing anything other than light riding, go for it.

Submitted by elliot blom a Downhiller from nsw orange australia

Date Reviewed: December 3, 2007

Strengths:    i am a light rider so the forks were pretty good with a fair bit of distance it is also light making it very controlable and is comfortable and fast for those simple tracks but for a harder trail this bike really neads to be a dually

Weaknesses:    the discs can be done up there sought of slow i broke em and the cranks are very week so when u bye this bike UPGRADE THEM IMMEDIATLY.

Bottom Line:   
its a good bike for a begginer but could use a better crank so dont hit the jumps without a landing ramp it is a good allrounder and has very good control i would recomend it to the riders just beggining ther freeride dowmhill style
