Strength:

A1 sturdy frame, good geometry, nice looks (black/silver colors).

Weakness:

cheap components, unadjustable RST Capa fork. tires are not good in loose dirt.

Until something breaks, seems to be a strong and confidence inspiring ride. A great choice for a beginner.
hasn't seen a lot of rough action but seems capable.

Strength:

Frame is light and sturdy, V brake and disc mounts, Paint is durable, Tires are outstanding

Weakness:

Cheap component set, you get what you pay for.

For $300 dollars you get a great frame, good tires, and a horrible component set. So far it has proved to be a reliable bike. Would like to upgrade the drive train, but going to wait until something breaks or wears out.

Strength:

Clean ride. Very light A1 frame.

Weakness:

Cheap components. The frame is the only thing of real value. Shocks work but have no lockout for street riding.

I know it was a gift but I'm gonna end up spending more on good parts that the bike itself is valued.

Strength:

Good weight frame, agile but at the same time really confident sturdy ride.. Have given mine a few upgrades just to suit my style of riding, works well for me for all conditions.. Especially muddy cross country tracks.

Weakness:

The standard gear set-up could be a bit better... Upgraded mine to the Shimano Alivio set. Brilliant!

GET ONE!!!!
