Strengths:    totally bullet-proof, I ride about 5-6 times a week of various mileage and the only ting I've had to do is pay $25 for a pin and bearing kit

Weaknesses:    because of the design--a little bob, have not tried a propedal yet , but should help

Bottom Line:   
bst bang-for-the-buck, I weigh a svelt 200lbs and have had not trouble. I dont do 5 foot drops either, though, I figure the bike is designed for xc riding so that is what I do,also an occassional bike race and advenure race from time to time.

Submitted by Clive a Cross Country Rider from Calgary, Canada

Date Reviewed: March 22, 2003

Strengths:    Takes lots of abuse, smooth ride, up and down hill. It's best to use the rear shock lock-out for steep long ups. Looks good and should last a long time.

Weaknesses:    There is nothing light about the Superlight. Yes, the frame is light, but once you start adding components, it's fairly heavy. Don't spend the extra money on the anodizing and powder coats. They get scatched just as easily.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is tuff for all of your downhill fun, some uphill riding and alot of fun on the cross country. The best of both worlds. Gave it only 4 flamin' Chiles because there is always room for inprovement.
