Date Reviewed: June 1, 1999

Strengths:    
PRICE,STRONG FRAME, AVERAGE WEIGHT (24 LBS), GOOD FORK FOR THE PRICE!!


Weaknesses:    
MAYBE THE BACK DERAILLEUR ISN'T THAT STRONG.


Bottom Line:   
The bike rides perfect. Shifting goes very rapid and direct. The sr suntour MG90 front fork is very good and adjustable. I read an article about it and they said it was very very good for the price and i can't complain about it. The brakes, Dia compe mx1, are very direct too. They brake very well, even in wet weather conditions. The Frame is good and strong. The Centera shifters are doing great and the rear derailleur isn't totally made from steel, but it's replaceable. The mavic rims are also very good. In short : it's a fun bike to ride. i give it 5 chillis!!
