Mike G   Weekend Warrior [Jul 15, 2010]
Strength:

Very durable bike. I've used it for 6 years now and it keeps up with the rigors of the trails. Excellent shifting, good speed, overall a great bike for the dollar and beginner to intermediate mountain bikers.

Weakness:

Ergomically unsound. You need spacers to adjust the height of the handle bars. If you don't have them, a minor inconvenience. The Avenir seat that came stock is horrible and very uncomfortable. But on the trails I ride, you're standing up more than sitting.

Just an excellent bike overall. Any adjustments for comfort can easily be made.

Strength:

Fast, Good Frame

Weakness:

Derailleur/Shifters, Shocks (Omni)

This Bike isn't for serious mountain bikers. The shocks could be better though you can ride up curbs. In other words it's good on the road (could be lighter but not heavy) but not the trails.

PS I'm borrowing it from my neighbor.

raleigh rider   Weekend Warrior [Jun 17, 2009]
Strength:

smooth shifting, great stopping power, and low maintenance

Weakness:

PEDALS,PEDALS,PEDALS definitely worth upgrading

bottom line is this is the most bang for your buck. Easily upgraded if necessary. I've been riding this bike for 6 years now and haven't had a single problem although I'm not an extreme trail rider. Perfect for the moderate rider!

Strength:

Cant got a better bike for the money

Weakness:

the spring is on the outside of the front suspension

My cousin (m40shumunu) got this bike used for 150 bucks and it is way better than the trek bikes that i tried except for the suspension. my specialized is better but it isnt a huge difference. overall this is the best bike up to 350 bucks

David Mundy   Racer [Aug 24, 2008]
Strength:

Great frame. I've been hit by four cars since I bought the bike and the frame is still straight.

Weakness:

cheap stock pedals. front forks arn't the best for off road. Shifter needs constant attention after a trail

Great beginner bike. But not the best for any extreme trails.
