Strength:

Tioga Factory XC 1.95's(ALL-condition tires that LOVE snow!), RockShox Jett XC(Low-maintainence), Old-School Cro-Mo frame(Bendy, in that good way!), good climber!

Weakness:

Stock pedals are essentially one-sided and suck. The rear cassette gummed up in -2°C and slacked my chain. Pinched my rear tire once, but I'd lessened the pressure up too much, so I'd just suggest caution if you ride under-pressured.

Hard to beat that price! Got mine in Mar. '01 for $600 Canadian (Originally $1050 Can.), rode it to work everyday, raced it in June, went through the local trails, without doing more than minor routine maintence to it. I didn't even get around to bringing it in for it's 1st month tune-up. Some of the other bikes I tried before buying this one were smother, lighter, quieter... for twice the price! And they would have needed more tune-ups than I've got time for. This bike's solid, reliable, easy too maintain, and is the first 'cycle I've rode that likes our winter! Just make sure to get the right size for you, as the cockpit has adjustment limits.

Strength:

Great frame, adjustable stem

Weakness:

what weaknesses????

I took it out onto Thayer St. for 10 minutes and tacoed both wheels. No problem, replaced them with Mavic 517s, haven't had a problem since. Adjustable stem a great feature! Buy it. Fifteen billion chilis minus three for the two tacoed wheels = 14,999,999,993 chilis! Great Value.

Strength:

What ever you hear about the spec is not correct - Mine is different - jett xc - deore / alivio - low flat geometry gt components etc. This bike is very flat and quite low making it highly responsive and manoevarable

Weakness:

No replaceable rear mech hanger - i run a rear mech guard after i trashed the hanger - (the mech pointed upwards-lol)

With the saddle down low- this suprisingly makes a very stable ride which can be used for even jumps.
The Jett xcs dont take much out of the power - but the 3 inch travel offers impact reduction on the arms.
DONT GO ON THE SPEC ON THE WEBSITE. very good bike - if you can still get 1- they don't make them any more and 2000 models are goin for around $400 - I would reccommend the timberline model i got to teenage riders who need something to do everything - I wouldn't reccommend this to slow old men who wont get the maximum out of the ride.
