Strength:

Handles well, 21-speed

Weakness:

Noisy gear shift, OEM tires terrible and replaced with Michelin tires, stiff suspension, no shock absorbers

The model I have is the Vector V1. Bought for my wife, but too small for her, even though she is 5'2". She felt cramped riding it. Got taken for a ride with the price on this model. Paid too much, probably because of the location of the store.

Looks good.

Weakness:

Shimano system sucks. Brakes suck. Makes an unidentified notching noise when i pedal hard.

I got taken on this bike. I didn't know anything about bikes and consequently i got sold a piece of crap. I didn't know anything about front suspension or anything at all. I paid 220 the next week i saw a V1 with front suspension for 200.
Maybe the bike was built poorly but this things brakes periodically drag and this notching noise, when i really get on it, is annoying. I have had this bike 7 months and have learned a lot about biking and realize i could have done a ton better. And on top of all this the 2000 V0 looks cooler than mine which i bought 2 months before the 2000's came out. Wish i had known that. If you can find one for 150 and don't need it for anything but pedaling around a trail its fine but other than that don't waste your money.

Strength:

I like the brakes they have worked great. Not too heavy for an entry level MTB
Nice low gear for Hills and technical rides

Weakness:

Had some probelms with chain skip, but was remidied. It would be nice to have some front shocks, also the 1" steerer make them difficult to find. Street tires.

I like it, it feels small and nimble, aside from the chain skip, it has been problem free.
I will keep for awhile yet and try and locate some supension forks for the front.
Decent overall package for the price!
