Great bike for it's price! It was an upgrade from my HMK Dual Suspension and so for I'm happy with it. It's been off road a few time but not serious downhill or anything yet and it's held up pretty well. The only thing I'm unhappy about is the power from my front disc it's a little sluggish on the slowing of everything. The tires are great whatever they are. The Alex Rims are strong, actually very strong, 9 foot drop offs onto flat concrete and they are still true. I would like to upgrade tthe front rim to something fatter but I have yet to find a suitable rim. So until next year when I decided on upgrading it'll be my weekend warrior because that's exactly what it is, it kicks every other bike in it's price range.

Strength:

Strong frame, Front disk brakes (mechanical), and decent value.

Weakness:

Rims are fairly slight, and front suspension is a serious joke.

This bike was excellent until I did one endover that turned the thin-asses alex rim in the front into a taco and twisted the living crap out of the front forks ("Zokes", Marzocchi cheap line forks). I replaced the busted rim with a Sun Rhino Lite and plan to do the same with the rear rim this spring. I am still riding the twisted forks which makes the disk ring all the time (it is driving me nuts!). I think I'll step into an RS Psylo XC sometime soon as well. Other than mentioned, this bike is a great value and a good first bike.

Strength:

components are good for the price you pay. Front shocks are pretty good. I am a heavy guy and I cannot bottom them out no matter how hard I try.

Weakness:

the back rims bent on me the first ride. Wasn't doing anything serious, just simple trails and by the end it is noticably bent. After the second ride, it wabbles like an inch, I had to practically take off my rear brakes in order to finish my ride.

This bike is great for the price you pay. I actualy like the front shocks on the front better than the Judy TT shocks. Components are decent, you don't need anything much more advanced if you are a beginner rider. The only problem is that you better have enough money to dishout about 100$ extra to buy a new rear rim that doesn't totally suck.
