Strengths:    Strong frame. Aluminum.
Great value.
Best parts spec for price

Weaknesses:    Un-reaplaceable derailer hanger
Headset has no seals
Front hub is not sealed

Bottom Line:   
Great for light trail riding and for getting into the sport.
Used it in a coulpe races. No real problems other than the hanger in the back has had to be straightened 2 times. You get what you pay for and in that case it's a steal.

Bottom Line:   

I just purchased a 99 Outpost and it's great! A 100% aluminum body for less than $350. This bike performs great and is worth a look. The tires grip the turns and does great on climbs.(WTB Velociraptors) The Shimano rapid fire shifters a a blast to use.This bike is worth every penny and then some. Only upgrades need are RockShoxs.
