    Strength:

    This bike just loves going uphill, I really appreciate the lockout system. I live in the Alps and for the technical, steep trails this bike is great. I've changed the brakes to Shimano. The suspension isn't the best but for the price it's just fine !

    Weakness:

    Avid brakes, suspension can be a bit limiting going fast downhill.

    Strength:

    Climbs brilliantly
    Excellent build quality
    Well specced for price range
    Pretty light for semi entry level bike
    Excellent Handling

    Weakness:

    Remote lockout issues - Not releasing from lockout - BUT I reckon it has more to do with the Rock Shox fork Did some research and there seems to be problems with the internals

    I started riding agai just under a year ago after not riding for around 12years. I climbed on this bike and within a month I was outclimbing all my riding partners that had been riding solidly for 5 years. This resulted in 3 of them buying Sparks. It oozes confidence on the single track downhills it is so smooth and responsive on the climbs I constantly get people commenting that they can't believe I have only been riding for a year and so competitive. It is all in the bike It just makes riding easy and fun DEFINATELY BUY A SPARK and in my humble opinion the 40 is big bang for buck And yes I will buy another one and recommend it to anyone else

    great all round bike , light, cool paint job

    not much suspension

    this is a great bike for a cross-country rider but in my opinion it does not have enough suspension for a serious dh rider
