Strength:

It has a good mix of components which makes it ideal for the entry level rider. It is economically priced.

Weakness:

A little bit on the heavy side.

An entry level bike that gives you a decent bang for the buck. The only knock against it is that it is a little chunky! Recommended for those first time buyers looking for a reasonably priced bike that has a good mix of components.

Strength:

Cheap,Easy to maintain, smooth on flat trails and not to steep downhills,good components for beginners on a budget and it gets u to and back in one piece.

Weakness:

Kinda clunky , not too manueverable esp on steep climb and muddy trails and steep downhills. BRake squeaks a lot over muddy terrain.

If you ride more on street than trails, this is a good bike to get but change the tires to street tires. Best for flat to moderate trails and good for beginners.

Strength:

This bike rocks! It comes with a good quality frame and great beginner components (Acera Shifters, RST 281 front sus.).

Weakness:

I didn't like the WORMDRIVE tires it came with when I bought it.

The bottom line on this product is that it's one good quality bike. I suggest it for any beginner who's looking for a good quality bike, and they don't want to spend a whole lot of money.

Similar Products Used: I haven't used a similar product to this great quality bike.
