Strength:

The frame is a great frame, stays stiff whilst throughing it around the trials, bars, stem and pretty rugged as standard, brakes are good for linear cables, the rims are nice rims with 14gauge spokes.

Weakness:

The crank is a little bit weak and i had to soon replace it, the bottom bracket is pretty poor too, i converted it to single speed after a few months of riding as i shredding the gears out of it, through a salt crank on it with a eclat 28t chainring and dmr SSC, this changed this bike into a really hard wearing jump bike, everything is rock solid on it now.

Upgrages include :
- funn full on bars 30mm riser
- octane one stem
- salt crank (cromo)
- dmr ssc
- eclat chainring
- avid XO carbon brakes
- fox 32 talas forks
-

great bike to base a project from, alot of standard stuff will last a while bit will need replacing at some point, once this changes have been made its a great jump bike that cant take absolutely anything you through at it

Strength:

everything about this bike rocks. mine came with fluid brakes so they r good. the shocks are stiff but give on jumps and going downhill. tires,frame is as solid as a rock easy to maneuver. all in all an awesome bike

Weakness:

are you joking

best bike i have ever ridden and would recommend it to any one who wants a solid kick ass dj and armature free ride/downhill bike. zit does not suck and for anyone who says it sucks shutup.

Strength:

Frame strength and geometry. Strong but not that heavy. Triple triangle design makes this the softest feeling rear of any Aluminum HT I have ever ridden.

Weakness:

Actual bike components are mostly rubbish. Complete bike is cheap, so damages reputation of frame.

>>>Frame only Review and rating<<<

Wouldn't buy the complete bike because of cheap components, but frame is great fun, jumps twice as well as an XC bike, twice as strong, OK for slightly longer than XC forks, prob 120-140mm max, surprisingly pretty good at aggressive AM downhills. Climbs and goes along on flat 80% as good as an XC bike, you end up with seat too low for efficient XC race style pedaling, wheelies and manuals really well.

If you are looking for an entry into DJ, urban or FR/AM on the cheap this frame is a solid buy and lots of fun, good all round frame. Or you just have old bits to lying around to whack on a cheap frame. Frames like Giant STP are in the same league, might be better or worse not sure never ridden one.

Strength:

good gears, crankset, rims, tyres.

Weakness:

weird frame geometry, crap suspension.
nearly bailed really bad because the suspension clicked out while i was in the air after preloading.

Everything on this bike is good except the frame and shocks, which is pretty much the whole bike. Do not buy this bike if you are planning to keep it for a long time, just get a second-hand dirt jumper of the internet.

Strength:

Good relation between price and quality

Weakness:

Fork could be a little smoother...

My main use for this bike is to XC and at the same time some Enduro.
It's a great bike, with some good materials and rides lovely
What could a guy get better than this for such a good price?
Just went yesterday for some XC and rode for 14km! Although this is not a pure XC bike, it handeled extremelly well and I'm a proud owner!!!
