Similar to Intense's Uzzi design. Rides better than I expected, but still not up to Intense quality. Four of my teammates in Taiwan ride and race this bike now.

Strength:

Fully adjustable, cool 8 inch of travel, sealed bearing linkage

The frame responds well. Very sturdy, can be adjust from 4, 6 and 8 of full rear travel. The rear shock (DMN-Clicker)controller mounted on the handle bar makes it so user friendly, you softened/hardened while riding. Cool 4-bar linkage FS bike you can rely on. I really havent got a negative reaction on the bike yet.

I boughth the frame and added components - forks RST High-5. Its a good learner frame for me (I'm 200lbs and am learni9ng DH) but has a long wheelbase compared to Giant ATX DH so steering is less precise. Rear travel ~6.5" but one of the adjustment positions cannot be reached by the shock.
Recently I've fitted a DNM USD180 fork, much better than the shorter High-5. DNM shock has a annoying fault of the damper head unscrewing. Overall - good and competitive but not top-class.

Strength:

The Long wheel base makes it like a REAL MISSILE in long straight paths, FR linkage makes a soft bike, very agile if you are a cool and agile rider and know how make it turn well, light frame (my entire bike is not but I understand that since a prefer more DH than free ride), 4 shock possitions (one cannot be reached if you use a large shock), aviable in a reforced version of the 2001 year and really cheap for a beginer.

Weakness:

EXTREME Long wheel base makes that the pilot needs to be very smooth and agile to ride well, so "old downhillers " (nothing personal) cannot take it to the maximun (i dont know wy but I just love cornering with this thing, and a friend of mine who is older than me hate it in this!), the real problem with this frame is that in the jumping sections you will allways drop your rear wheel to the xtreme (HO CRAP!), its like you allways have to jump doing buny hopes to control it, but even so is a really good frame , by the way I have heard that they brake up, but I just know a one only real case of that. and please if we are talking of DH bikes......"any one brakes"

Exelent frame for a young downhiller who is not a jumping lover, it"s like the dessigners wanted to make a bike that never left the ground and could go fast in any terrain (is a really good frame in rocky seccions), I really recomend it for any one who is not a racer but likes to ride like one.

Strength:

As a word of clarification, I am actually rating a Pacific YX 9500. This was as close to that as I could find. As far as actual strengths, I am having a hard time seeing them since it just broke. It is a full suspension bike, and was nice on downhills.

Weakness:

It broke. The rear suspension arm snapped on a small bunny hop. The front shock was too soft and I was able to bottom it out on a few landings.

It broke. Even though there were a lot of nice components on it, the frame wasn't up to the job. I wish I had bought a higher quality bike.

Diamondback Outlook, no suspension. Brief playing on a friends Kona. That was a sweet bike.
