    Strength:

    Inexpensive. Good bike to buy and build they you want it. Perfect for a beginner.

    Weakness:

    This bike is a little on the heavy side. It's about 37 lbs stock. Going uphill is this bike's worst enemy. If you plan on really riding the bike, the components do not last very long. The fork is weak, the rear shock must go, the single wall rims bend right away. The handlebars are steel and bend easily.

    This is a great bike for starting out. Stock, it just can't take the abuse of hard riding. Once you do a few upgrades, the bike is ready to ride! I really put this bike through some abuse and it can handle a big rider like me (200 lbs.) So, I would say this is a pretty great bike.

    Strength:

    The frame is amazing! Its welded so nice and strong!!!

    Weakness:

    stock rear shock, front shock, crank and bottom bracket, grip shift, brake levers, front dereiluer, pedals really suck!

    This bike with all the stock components is pretty good for some cross country and trail riding but if you want to do any thing bigger like freeriding you have to upgrade them. Once you do it is a pretty amazing freeride/light downhill use bike. The brake levers, pedals, bottom bracket, and grip shift are pretty junky so upgrade them at least. Then both shocks. Put some brake boosters on and you'll be rocking and all pimped out for freeriding. You might also want to get some new rims as those tend to bend easily. I give it 4 flamin' chilis overall because it is a rocking frame but KHS could have put a few more better stock components on it.

    Similar Products Used: Jamis Durango SX, Oryx Equipe 80. Both really nice bikes aswell.
