Strength:

Great frame

Weakness:

none

I like this frame. It's light enough given it's intended use and bombproof construction. I don't know about the bike with the stock specs, but the frame is working for me. I ride it for shuttle runs or days at a bike park. It handles well enough for skinnies and teeter totters and holds up for drops. Not real efficient for climbing with the setup I have.

Anyone looking for an inexpensive hardtail freeride bike would be well served by this frame. Build it with your own parts.

Strength:

Frame, handlebars, tires, bump absorption is good for a hardtail

Weakness:

brakes, a tad overpriced

A good DJ and light freeride bike. Eats up bumps surprisingly well for a hardtail. The frame is sturdy and it can take some abuse. Good bike for a beginning freerider.

Solid Frame, handles well. Can be taken lightly downhill.

Bars a little too wide, cranks come loose. otherwise great.

Great bike for weekend warrior types. Not good for constant downhill riding... stick to lighter trails and DJing

Strength:

Strong Frame, Good Balance. I like how light it is.

Weakness:

This bike seemed to make my back sore and I didn't like how it shifts gears so slowly.

this bike is good for beginners, Its strong and Sturdy but Very Unpredictable, It seems to screw up every so often, Especially the crank.

KWAK

Strength:

The frame is solid

Weakness:

a lot, I dont even know where to start.
I paid $900 for it, and I swear I spent another at least $500 fixing. The rear deraillers broke 2 times in a year,
I had to get new tires, the fork got really loose, the LBS couldn't fix it so I had to send it to the factory (got it fixed for free though) Now my cranks been coming loose so badly - it comes loose once in 10 minutes. I think the fork's coming loose again now.

I was at first happy with this solid bike,
but it breaks down really easily if you are
one of those people who fall a lot, and fall every
time you go riding. I think there is something wrong
with the angles of the frame.

ray

Strength:

-solid frame
-good price

Weakness:

-the crank wabbles cuz the bb cup ring keeps come loss
-small things, like cheap paddles, grip, bar, stem and everything you can think of, cheap no names, but they work fine.
-THE FORK! Manitou is as bad as fork gets.. 2nd biggest complain i have(first is the wabbling crank..

It's a good beginning bike, very good for the price, don't bother by norco sas or kona stuff for like 1200 CAD, cuz this bike is just as good for 1/3 of the price from second hand
