Ultra strong frame quality components, exceptionally light

pedals broke after a couple of weeks(plastic) whells kinda average , no disc brakes or 6 bolt hubs

great for xc beginners, have taken this downhill a few times but would be bettter wth avid bb7s new hubs, rims, chain guide and decent forks (mine came with some. Good value for money so get one of these

low cost baby! yeeeehaaa!

The bike is good for the Eddieman. I like to ride downhill! not the hardcore uphills, just streets with a slight decline
The Eddieman is a lazy man! HaHo!

dave   Cross-Country Rider [Sep 27, 1999]
Strength:

great around town bike. use mine to ride back and forth to school. about 15 min. ride. great value. trek 800's seemed to flimsy, by comparison.

Weakness:

no suspension. but thats par for the course at this price (220ish).

this was the best, least expensive, well built, bike i could find. yeah, if you want to spend a little more (about 40 bucks) you can get front suspension. but i needed to have enough headroom to buy extras ie. lock, bottle and cage, pump, rear rack, and tire linners, dont forget the linners! mr tuffy has saved me alot of flat changin'.

Similar Products Used: trek 800, diamond back sorrento, also a nice bike... for about 50 bucks more.
