Strength:

The ride is smooth and the frame is strong with stylish lines. The rear suspension is good, setup for the average 180lb. rider with no modifications needed. The front forks have 1.75" of travel good for moderate terrain. This is a great bike for its price.

Weakness:

The rear derailuer is in need of upgrading. I moved up to a Shimano Deore LX drive train which eliminated the chain skipping. Similiar personal upgrades maybe needed due to your riding habits, I.E. hard intermediate or advanced.

This is a great bike for the beginner or intermediate mountain bike enthusiast on a budget. Its sturdy and reliable for both street and trail. Inexpensive FULL suspenion bikes don't come any better. I intend to ride it until the wheels fall off.

Similar Products Used:

I've tested Mongoose, Jeep and other similarly priced bikes. This bike had the best style and ride in its price catagory.

Strength:

Great frame, good rear suspension has a lot of potential

Weakness:

the parts ( shifters, cranks, brakes etc. ) are not the best that they can give you, some upgrades would be wise

A good bike for beginners and a frame that you can add upgrades to later when you start getting serious
