Strength:

light frame with some pretty good stuff. not too expensive either. climbs very well and is very responsive.

Weakness:

the bloody disc brakes(formula md-1)!!!

great bike overall but as u can see, i changed most of the factory assembled parts. nice to ride straight outta the box but remember, get rid of the disc brakes !!!!!!!

Jason King   Weekend Warrior [Aug 26, 2002]
Strength:

Light, good balance, excellent reliability

Weakness:

Disc brakes, Mongoose grips

Had an incident involving a straight set of five flights of stairs coming down from the Sydney Harbour Bridge a while ago - I put it down to me being lazy and not adjusting the disc brakes in as they had worn.

After the hospital, crutches and physiotherapy I'm riding again and have had a complete front brake calliper failure. Squeeze the trigger and the anodised lever on the calliper jumps over some internal notch and the cable goes slack.

Convinced now that the original problem was this same problem. This time it happened on the dirt - much softer to land on than concrete - no broken hip this time.

WARNING: great bike, but everyone replace their brakes!
