This bike is SO Sweet!
Aluminum frame- allthough it'snot a first class aluminum like the ones found on Kona's- but it will stand up to my demands.
Group components are trustworthy...deore and deore xt
Wheels are nice enough...built to last..deore hubs ...but the rims...??? Weinmann Xc H2O...never of that !
This bike is tha bomb
U get your money worth for every penny u put in
The frame,itself, is stiff and responsive.Teh bike weights around 26 pounds which is good.
Disc brakes compatibles...but who needs them...I trade in my stock V's for 2 pairs of Deore LX.
Paint job is fine.
Marzocchi fork 2000- z5- is sweet but i'm getting a z.1 drop off.REallY Flashy!
This is a must buy!

Weakness:

I was disapointed that a bike of this quality came with a house brand name for the stem,seatpost,seat,handlebar and crank. But it's not teh end of the world. I was really happy about the other components...that makes up for it
Only weakness ....is it'S not as solid as a CROMO frame...
Lame stock v brakes.
That's all!

The bottom line is the HTA 250( year 2000) is the sweetest piece of equipment u can get for 1100$ bucks.
Allthough the price goes up if u switch to deore lx brakes...and specialized tires and grips.....
u GET the picture?

Incroyable ce que tu peux obtenir avec un bike pareil, à peine au-desus de mille tomates. salaman

Weakness:

Un bon groupe de composantes et les vendeurs ne se prennent que 50% (comme les autres bikes) de profit brut.

Un super look pour ce prix.

Strength:

it has the same frame as the top of the line hta, sweet price.

Weakness:

uses some house-brand components, such as stem, hubs, brakes etc.

this is a review of the 2000 model of the hta 250. there is no listing for it so i had to pick the 1999 from the list. the bike seems really nice, and the price can't be beat. i paid just $1059. plus the dealer i bought it from offers free lifetime maintenance. sweet. i reaaly like how the frame is the same as their top-of-the-line aluminum hardtail. the colour scheme of orange and blue is pretty cool. i will upgrade the fork soon, perhaps to a z.3. i'll be looking forward to my first season of racing.
