Strength:

nice snappy frame. looks mean and very strong. i thinks the bends in the rear triangle of the frame provide some sort of dampening like suspension. comes with a cane creek headset!

Weakness:

short top tube means it wont suit some riders and can get tiring over long rides. it also makes it really easy to lift the front wheel by accident on steep climbs which can stuff you right up. its also quite heavy with stock components

i ride this bike to work every day of the week and have also started to ride some trails.i quite like the frame, i find it so much easier to ride on trails than my gt. however the gt was great to ride on the road over distance. it is easy to manoeuver around on trails and jumps. i haven't fully tested it yet but the frame looks to be very strong. mine came with all the LX gear on it and is not heavy but my friend has one all stock and its pretty heavy. i think its a reasonable frame but mainly if you want to ride trails without to much climbing. i wouldn't buy this bike/frame for commuting

Strength:

Very good handling, light bycicle, excellent geometry. The equipment is what you get for your pay. This bike is a little rare because the brand, so you get a exclusive and affordable bike that will bring you very good off roads trips.

Weakness:

Brakes are little soft.

This bike has better performance and stability than other same (or a little upper) priced bikes. I recommend this bike for a weekend warriors or begginers.

Strength:

great ride. good turn handler. excellent breaking. best looking bike I have ever seen. very light.

Weakness:

none that i've found

this one is a steal. anyone who gets into serious mountainbiking has to try this bike first. between the speed and the agility you can ride with others who have spent 4 times what will spend for this bike. It is awesome.

At this entry level price-range, pick whichever bikes feel best for you. This one happened to have a geometry that I loved. I tried the standard fare, and the Giants were equally good. I just happened to pick out this one... it helps that the butted frame looks good and Fujis are rare. The Trek had a terrible daisy Upright geometry. The Fisher--even the Genesii-didnt feel exactly right. Hardrock were built like wal-mart bikes. Kona was too plain.

After a week I had a slight freeplay within the bottom bracket, but it was fixed/replaced by the shop. The brakes stop okay, but look cheap and has a soft spongy feel (even after adjustment). The Acera/Alivio combo shifts surpringly smooth and quick. I don't like the big clunky integrated shifter/brake unit. I'll probably upgrade those to Deores later (cheap upgrade)

If I had to do it all over again, I'd probably look at the Fuji Outland (upgraded componentry everywhere, and better rear triangle) or an 03 Giant Yukon or something like that. But again, go out and ride them, and buy what you feel best.
