Fairly light for what it is
Simple
Super Strong
CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP

Weakness:

Front Shock
Not super light

This bike is now going on 9 years old now, and the only thing I have replaced is the tires, fork (didn't need to be replaced, but I wanted too), and cables. Drive train is going to have to be replaced next year, and the rear shock the year after if I still have it.

I love this bike, and it's been very dependable. None of the bushing in the rear are loose, nor are the wheel hubs, or the headset, the rebound adjust still works on the rear shock, even the orginal brake pads are still good! Granted I probably only do about 250-350 miles a year on it (I'm mostly a road biker) but it's been great! I don't ride easy stuff, and like to play a little too, and it's been great for that as well.

Bottom line- it's the best mountain bike I've ever had, and while I've owned it I've had serval others as well (specialized, fuji, diamondback, and trek) and they've all died and this one is still rock solid!

Strength:

I haven't broken one thing yet! adjustable rear shock rocks, even if only 4" travel.
I just got 4th in Mens-C DH at the Collegiate Easterns!!! And some people say this bike shouldn't be ridden off road?!

Weakness:

Shifting is never right. Even with new shifters! A bit heavy for it's main purpose of a XC bike...

Wicked bike for the money! A bit on the heavy side for XC, but lighter than most DH bikes!

Paid $600 for a bike that equals many $700 bikes.
Full suspension has already saved my butt many times. I feel I got the most bike for the money

Great for the price, fun full suspension.

Weakness:

Rims, crankset, Alivio rear derailleur shifts when it wants to. Kinda heavy.

Awesome bike for the money. You can upgrade and have a $1200 bike for $800. 5 chilis for the bad-ass full suspension.

Weakness:

Shifting never in tune! in tune on lowest out on the highset. The chain would often come off, then after tuning wouldn't shift into the closest gear.

The shifting would never stay in tune. Also had a chin break within 1mo. of buying the bike. Don't recomend anyone buy his bike for the cost, there are better bikes out there.
