Strength:

Strengths: Great entry level XC Mountain Bike. Solid Frame, 29er tires make climbs effortless. The 2013 model is in Gray, Yellow, and White - which I like personally but may not be everyone's favourite styling.

Weakness:

Weaknesses (NOTE: Purchased Used, I am 2nd Owner): Stock coil fork, 3x9 drivetrain, pedals, and tires are sufficient for entry level riders, but anyone intermediate (like myself) will need to either invest in upgrades or replace outright.

Price Paid:
$375

Strength:

good value, superb frame strength, relatively light and its Canadian eh!!!?

Weakness:

Stock saddle and tires. I switched for a Brooks B-17 saddle and Kenda Kiniption 2.3 tires and it completely transformed my 25 kilometre commute to work.

For a rider on a budget aka blue collar lol stepping up to this bike has made me anticipate every ride/commute. Buy Canadian/North American and support our industries!!

Strength:

great bike for beginers,smooth riding,decent components for the money

Weakness:

no lockout on front suspension and not alot of preload for the heavier rider

just got back into riding after about 10 yrs off found bike at a great price rides smooth and as for the components they work just fine and when they do break just upgrade too better parts.Find the frame nice and strong the geometry works fine for my size(300lbs). Have ridden approx.250 miles so far some rail trail and some single track nothing too extreme but difficult none the less i would recommend this bike and say it works just as well as bikes that cost 300 more and i like too know the money for the bike stays in my own country try too always buy canadian or american
