Date Reviewed: May 15, 2000

Strengths:    Sturdy, Full Suspension for a cheap price.

Weaknesses:    Extremely heavy, making adjustments a little too often.


Bottom Line:   
The price for a full suspension bike is not bad but would spend my money on something else. Unless your a hard core rider who wants a cheap bike this is not the bike for you.
Weekend warriors will find this bike is too heavy.

Date Reviewed: August 5, 1999

Strengths:    
Full suspension from a good company for about $250.


Weaknesses:    
I find it very heavy. Cables are on top of top bar, get's pulled by legs and other objects, occassionally.


Bottom Line:   
Excellent full suspension bike for people with little money. I like everything about this bike except maintaneance seems a bit more often. Right now, the rear shock part that bends is squeaking alot for me.

Here is my gauntlet....where is your's poser boy?

It starts with an idea....."lets get this guy out of a funk", we say....or so I think it goes.....and so goes a pro-racer, a perfectionist business-man and a bro-extraordinire.

Lance Armstrong runs the Gauntlet, uh, Time Trial

at L'alpe d'Huez. 21 Switchbacks. 10 miles. Average grade of 7.9%. Drunken and abusive spectators who spit on him shouting vile things at he and other riders. He managed to bury everyone but the memory of Pantani who's record he missed by 1 second. Just awesome.Read More »
