The bike is entry level, so you shouldn't complain too much about it's flaws.
It's a solid bike, and as mentioned before, is heavy as all hell which makes climbing hills a major drag. Although I'm sure it will help you fitten-up double quick.
It has back suspension, but I'm not sure if it does much at all, except make the bike even heavier.
However, I have seriously put this bike through it's paces on some pretty hectic single tracks and it's hold it's own.

I'd say if you were interested in getting into mountain biking, get this bike and use it for a year or so and then upgrade asap.

A hard bike which you don't feel bad about beating up :D oh, and it looks pretty cool...you won't find a better bike in it's price category.

A superb bike with quality components. The gear shifters have a nice feel to them and gear changes are quiet and smooth. brake levers have a nice solid feel to them, not like dia comp stuff found on bikes in this price range.
I bought this bike for cycle touring , off road cycle tracks and easy mtn biking. I have no complaints about it at all. I originally wanted a bike with front suspension but i bought this instead because the components were much better. The rsp (Raleighs own brand?) components are class stuff.
It cost me 325 GBP.
Nothing about this bikes appears to be cheap or shoddy.
Buy one

The 1998 M-Trax 100 uses the oversize reinforced gussett Alu frame and a mixture of STX-RC V-brakes
and levers, STX-RC front-mech, Sachs Centera DiRT rear-mech and shifters, Weinmann rims and Suntour
cranks. It is a beautiful bike, well made, bought for my wife and I'm jealous.The bike is so good that I'm going to have to buy the CroMo framed model up, the 150, and have the Sachs
gears put on. I may convince my better half to buy it for me.Raleigh, at the 300 to 500 lbs (sterling) range that I've looked at offer the best range of components and
frames at each and every level. Even the RSP (Raleigh's own brand) stem, bars, post and hubs are good.
Avoiding the complete groupset option Raleigh have gone to choose the best components for every budget.

Strength:

it has suspension ermm and it takes medium drops relatively well if u set the shocks up right

Weakness:

heavy(like a tank) cheap components, i bent the wheels after a month(1.5m drop off by accident, i didn't c it till it was too late)

nice entry lever full susser, if u can afford something better go for it instead, u get what u pay for. Raleigh makes cheap bikes that last fairly well. If u're into downhill buy something stronger than this with proper suspension.
