Strength:

Great gears, great rims, nice frame

Weakness:

shocks r to heavy and arent easy to change prelode and reloade, pedals tear through skin, back wheel comes off to easy.

I would recommend this bike to everyone i know. it is in a good price range. if you ever slip out of the pedals your legs come out not looking as good as the bike though. Over all a great bike and you should grt it if you are a dirt jumper or a cross country or even starting downhill.

Strength:

Forks work great! Even for Rst they are pretty sick... the bike can take hits has great double wall rims and looks great too

Weakness:

The grips kinda wear out easily because i'm hard on my bike too.

Its a great bike i'd definatly recommend it to anyone it can take hits and if you case a jump your rim wont be warped unless its extremely bad
