Strengths:    Lasted it for over a decade with all original components
Relatively light
Solid components and construction


Weaknesses:    Simple design

Bottom Line:   
I got this bike in 1997 and used it as my primary mode of transportation and my recreational cross-country bike! This bike has seen its share of trails, mud, jumps, snow, rain, potholes, worship, misuse, and then for about 3 years, practical neglect! I haven't even touched it for those 3 years, and then a 2 weeks ago I took it for a spin and it still rode like it was new. I decided to buy a new bike, mostly for emotional reasons (just wanted something new), but to be honest there's nothing wrong with my Giant. One of the best investments I've ever made! If you're reading this because you're thinking of getting one (no doubt used as I'm sure you can't find a new 1997 Iquana SE) rest assured that you'll getting a good bike, just make sure it was treated well.

Strengths:    
Good Price
Durable Frame


Weaknesses:    
Stock Saddle, tires
Cheapie Fork


Bottom Line:   
I figured I'd post a review as someone might want to buy this bike used. It was my first MTB, and pretty decent for the price. The geometry is relaxed and the cromoly frame has given a good ride. I have ridden this bike about 1000 mi, 90% singletrack, and it has held up. The stock tires were crap and the saddle bent, but other that than no major problems. The indy s fork is pretty harsh, but better than rigid and hasn't busted. Obviously not a racers rig but a good bike for the dough..buy one if the price is right. 4 chillies for value.
