Strengths:    Very light,strong, can stand some abuse form a light rider, good for trials with a small frame.

Weaknesses:    the fork can only be upgrated to 3 inches (I have a 2001 rockshock indy with elastmer)and it has a stationary deraler hanger, but other than that the bike is awsome.

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line is if your a light rider 150 lbs or less this is a great bike that can stand some abuse. I use it out in dodge rider the 100 foot laders and 3-4 foot drops and the only thing that is broken on it is the rear brake spring. Other than that the bike is in great condition and increadibly strong.

Strengths:    frame, price, kona reliability, color, uniqueness

Weaknesses:    acera x rear der, alex rims, weight, 7 spd

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike for anyone that is interested in getting started in mtn biking. I love the fact that not everyone has a Kona, unlike Trek, Cannondale, GT. No offense to those companies but I like being a little different. Kona is an excellent bicycle company that puts top quality products out. Warning though, this is not a racer. Too heavy for racing, but great hardtail for trail riding. If you are looking for a racer try the King Kahuna. I give this bike a 5 for value and a 4 on overall, because of the weaknesses noted above.

Strengths:    
Geometrics, durability,brakes,
shifters


Weaknesses:    
derailleurs


Bottom Line:   
Great first bike, already have upgraded the pedals and plan on upgrading the front suspension. This bike takes a pounding and keeps coming back. Have had problems with the front derailleur, but nothing that can't be fixed at home. I probably could have waited and bought a more expensive bike with a better setup, but time constraints were a huge factor. This bike has been great so far, especially when comparing it to other bikes in it's price range.
