Strength:

Super solid Frame

Weakness:

Entry level components

This bike is awesome. Super plush on jumps and drops. Bike doesn't pedal great but what can you expect from a 45lb bike. The seat does not have much height adjustment but the Titec telescoping seat post helps a lot. The name speaks for itself.

Strength:

super strong frame... same design as a 2008 and lower frame... tires last a long time with doing alot of skids, holds up to racing well (just started racing) can take huge drops

Weakness:

fork, brakes, grips, shifters, rear shock, rims, not so nice in rock gardins

this bike looks sweet, has plenty of travel (can take anything from a 160mm to a 203mm dual crown fork) , builds nice, nice weight, perfect for trails with alot of jumps... not so much for rock gardens

ill give it 4 chillys for value because it can get expencive to buy and replace parts

5 chillys for overall because i'm really happy with how the bike turned out

Strength:

Extreemly solid..... Well made it makes you feel like you can do anything

Weakness:

The front fork isnt the greatest but if your just starting out it will serve you fine.

this is an awsome bike. It handles real well, many people complain about the 24' rear tire, but i personally like it. Its great for a beginner/ intermediate, downhiller/freerider The hayes disk breaks are awsome. Its bullet proof and yah

Strength:

affordable, good frame,reliable drivetrain

Weakness:

fork performance is harsh. brakes are far too weak for a bike this heavy.

decent starter dh bike. get rid of the brakes hayes sole are not enough to slow down this bike. scary!

fork is harsh and tops out making an anoying pinging.

after replacing the brakes this bike is better but i still would like a little more plush fork. something with a thru axle.

ifyou can get a good deal on this bike go for it, plan on new brakes and fork. I would not recomend paying full price for this bike.

Strength:

great frame can take anything. great rear suspension. some good componets. fair price. great frame to start on

Weakness:

brakes!!! while they fell fine on the test run on the trial two fingers are nessisary. forks could be alot better either too stiff or bottom out too easy.i broke a pivot bearing about 2 months of hard riding but i think that was just a defect.

would buy this bike agin. will recomend it to anyone. great place to start.buy it!!.

Downhiller

Strength:

good frame and componets i really like the frame it is bullet proof the fork is ok i am gonna put a marzocchi 66 or rockshox domain on it later, the rear shock is good i just need a stronger spring cause of my weight i weigh around 160 if that i lik

Weakness:

the fork bottoms out easily even with 40 psi on a 5 stair and the grips are uncomfortable and it is real heavy but keep in mind its a freeride bike and the chain stay is pretty weak

its a great freeride bike i recomend it it is really upgradeable and perfect for a first freeride bike
