Submitted by Julio Costa a Cross Country Rider from Johannesburg, South Africa

Date Reviewed: February 12, 2000

Strengths:    Well-designed, value-for-money, full-suspension, aluminium-framed bike

Weaknesses:    Y-frame difficult to caddy on conventional bike-carriers. Apparent "incompatibility" of Shimano and Gripshift components. Fitting a carrier (for touring) may be awkward, due to the rear suspension's movement.

Bottom Line:   
My wife and I both have these bikes, with different setups, we enjoy cross-country riding, and are very happy with their performance. The design of the Aluminium frame is good, with gussets where neccessary, and the suspension is dandy for rough terrain, without absorbing noticeable power.
