Strength:

(STOCK) Frame, Geometry, Bars, Stem, Value (bought mine for 150), Bombproof

Weakness:

(STOCK) Frame Weight, Crankset (unbelieveable chain suck), Front derailleur, Rear derrrraileur, Brakes, Shifter/brake combo, reflectors, Fork, Seat, Grips

This bike is for the kids who are broke and who can upgrade over time. It's also for the 4x racer and the DS racer, and anybody who trashes their bike.


Short Story

So, this started out as a commuter and beater bike until i discovered the wonderful Geo. Then, I first beat the crap outta it then upgraded the crap out of it and now its *spectacular*

Long story.

Yes, it started out as a commuter bike when i was a 10. Then as i started to really get into riding, I ended up bringing it to the dirt jumps. The cranks sucked and chainsuck was inevitable with the 3-by plus a heavy chain and a crappy rear derailleur. I then saw some potential as a DJ bike, so thats what i ended up converting it to. Next went to the whole drivetrain and cockpit. I initially ran a 1x9 with parts from the random parts box and ended up with a 1x9 with a raceface evolve crankset, e*thirteen LG1+ guide, sram x0 shifter/derailleur and a shimano HG50 cassette. Then i ended up racing Dual slalom and ran a shimano zee setup and a wider bar plus a raceface seatpost. Finally to go were brakes which were avid juicy 7's then Elixir 7's. Then after my XT/mavic/DT wheels died. I went and dumped my life savings on a pair of i9 enduros. Best purchase ever made in my life.

Kefentse   All Mountain Rider [Jun 17, 2012]
Strength:

Wide handle bars for my long arms makes great control, first set of pads lasted for nearly two years, for the weight of the bike it takes off on concrete and even faster in the trails were it takes a pounding and comes bake for more... Ill never get ride of this rough and rugged bike. had mine since oct. 08

Weakness:

weight but the bike is built for big drops so......

Its a cold monster for your first or 5th bike especially if you ride trails like I do.

Strength:

Frame is great at 250 it handles me at the park, the jumps, and the trail just fine.

Weakness:

Wheels are a little light for someone who weighs as much as me and does what I do. The fork and drive train are crap. I haven't replaced the fork yet but I just put on a new crank and BB. The brakes are ok if you adjust them before almost every ride.

Good bike to start out with, as you get more advanced you can upgrade your parts.

SPECHR   Weekend Warrior [Aug 27, 2009]
Strength:

Bike can take a beating.

Weakness:

This 2009 model looks too nice to ride

2009 Gary Fisher Mullet is a great XC, AM, FR bike! Can handle high drops to riding for miles on the road. Again the only complaint is the frame looks too nice with the decals which makes me worried about scratching this thing.

Strength:

unstoppable tank

Weakness:

no fork lockout. I ride the rode as much as the trail. I think a lockout fork would make this bike perfect.

great bike with almost no flaws.

Cpt1124   Cross Country Rider [Apr 06, 2009]
Strength:

Beefy frame and majority of components are really solid (stem, crank). Confindence inspiring on the big downhills, while not overly hard to grind uphill

Weakness:

a touch heavy. some of the componentary (derailuers, shifters, and brakes) are on the short side, but the frame is worth the compromise.

Great all around. Awesome frame that takes a beating irregardless of what you throw at it.
