Strengths:    The frame has balls!!!!!

Weaknesses:    Original wheel set

Bottom Line:   
I agree with the other guy about hte original size of hte head tube. I did find some marzocchis for it a few days ago... The frame kiks ass. I love the tom ritchy dropouts. I plan on riding my 1995 frame for at least 2 more seasons.
I broke the pullstar hub within a week of hard riding. the rims weren't much better. Mavic odd balls that sucked. Atleast 217's would have been better...

Great Frame...very strong! Original wheelset (Ritchie Rock and OCR) have never required maintenance after over 3000 miles.


Bottom Line:   
This bike has been a great performer, especially after the changes I have made. Originally, I purchased this bike for $800. I have over 3000 miles on it with no problems. I am 230 lbs and I can feel the pull on the frame when I am going down rocky descents, however, there is never a problem. Best bike for the buck!

Bottom Line:   

My second MTB purchased on sale 3 years ago from Colo Cycles for $799. Good strong light True Temper frame with some XT components and Mavic wheels. The rear Pulstar hub broke spokes every ride; I rebuilt the back with an XT hub. No problems with this machine except it came with a 1 steering tube greatly limiting fork upgrade opportunities. I'm replacing the Manitou 4 with a 80mm Judy XC (and Englund air cartridge if and when the Judy blows). The frame is great quality (except for the steering tube). In spite of some flaws, its worth a few bucks to make some upgrades and keep this fine hard tail on the trail.
