Strengths:    This bike has great downhill and climbing abiliteis it has great super cross bars and a downhil stem. the tires r great and the frame is very solid. I also enjoyed the shifters and handle grips.

Weaknesses:    This bike was a bit to heavy. The front fork had to be replaced 2 due to the seels poping out. the derailer was trash and so were the cranks. The sprokets were also trash. Over all i would recomend this bike its is a geat ride and much enjoyed

Bottom Line:   
Over all i would recomend this bike its is a geat ride and much enjoyed.It is a bit heavy and hard to cat walk at first but easy to learn how. i also was impressed at how well i could stal the bike.

Date Reviewed: February 18, 2003

Strengths:    This bike has the potential to be a great downhill bike. Strong frame, strong Triple clamp fork and light weight rims.

Weaknesses:    The crank was the only problem I had design wise, but other than that it was well designed, balanced and weighted.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is a solid, well designed bike. The only problem i had with it was the stock crank, but I soon replaced it with the truvativ...and had NO problems since.

Strengths:    Price, Durable, Looks

Weaknesses:    A little flex

Bottom Line:   
I have ridden them pretty hard and I expected them to have bent them by now, I'm 165 pounds and they have held up. There are better cranks but for 5 times the price. In my opinion these are the best cheap cranks ever made.

Strengths:    price,price,price

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
Don't be put off by the low price. Dotek makes some great cranks for a fraction of the price of the big names. I paid a little over $20 for my Dotek and the quality and strength are unbelievable at this price.
