Strengths:    cheeeaaap! fat rear tire.

Weaknesses:    all bearings unsealed. bb unserviceable, comes loose if you look at it, then squeeks like a stuck pig. magura edition equipped w/hs 11's which are comparable to poor v brakes(nothing a good grind and some tar wouldnt solve). not really a weakness, but front tire has a 1/4 in wobble.
bashgaurd too narrow.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldnt buy this bike new. 5-600 is too much for a bike of such poor quality. your better off finding something lighter and higher quality second hand. If you find this bike used at a silly price, it is a good way to get into (or back into in my case) trials.

Duration Product Used:   3 months

Similar Products Used:   97 x lite, 00 x lite, stock bike

Bike Setup:   stock, except I drilled another hole in the back rim for double tubes, as I didn't want to pay for a moto tube. I find this mod highly effective for such a wide tire, and if your comfortable drilling holes in your rim, I recommend you try it. the advantages are many!

Strengths:    Compact, price, good for small drops and all-around beginner things

Weaknesses:    HEAVY! v-brakes have a little too much play sometimes for good pogo-ing or lurching

Bottom Line:   
Great beginner ride that should last a long time if you dont crash too much or aspire to go too big!
