Strength:

hardcore frame for the tough, heavy riders.

Weakness:

manitou six & derailers are kinda sucky

great bike for the price, with a few upgrades hang with the rest.

Strength:

Very good frame.Agile and responsive.A good climber ... like a charging bull with its ass on fire.A good descender too ... like a wild boar running for life.

Weakness:

Comes with low end components.I change everything except the frame,the rims and the tyres. The upgrade costs me another seven hundred bucks.

The perfect and ultimate frame for maniac XC riders. A few friends of mine(they ride other types of bike) who test rode my bike immediately fell in love with this bike. No problem of handling this bike at whatever terrains and conditions. For those who would like to try this bike, I suggest that they just buy the frame and custom build it.

Tattoo   Racer [Sep 29, 2003]
Strength:

Super bomber 2004 hydroform tubing. Super strong bike and handles like a dream. A great crossover bike for people coming from BMX backgrounds. Has a nice short rear end for manualing with ease and a nice steep headtube angle.

Weakness:

Components such as the rear derraileur could and should be upgraded to LX at the least. Deore works but doesn't live through much abuse. And the Alivio front derraileur should be nicer and changed to LX at the least as well.

Super bomber bike for the price point! Little things like the derraileurs can be changed when you blow up whats on there and upgrade to LX at the least maybe XT. Great bike for BMX enthusiasts! This bike ROCKS IT HARDCORE!

Strength:

this bike is very agile and goes over most any terrain. i havn't changed anything on it execpt the seat.

Weakness:

they derailers are a little weak and they tend to bend easily

this bike is great for any rider who wants a quality off road bike that goes. the gearing is just right for any terrain and it just a great bike
