Strength:

Looks, suspension, tires and wheels.

Weakness:

Shifters maybe I need to get used to them. Brakes.

This bike looks amazing I definitely turn heads on the trail and in the city. My bike is white in color, I'm not crazy about the shifters they feel awkward, whenever I down shift it will lower two gears instead of one. This is also my first time having disc brakes on my bike, they work just fine however I feel as if they could be Much more powerful. I'll give it some more time. In conclusion this bike has everything a entry level dual suspension thousand dollar bike has and can do. Definitely most bang for your buck I am completely satisfied with this purchase. I do all the work on my bike so I can see this bike hitting the trail for years to come.

Strength:

Bike feels solid, Crankset, seat, handlebars and general geometry fits well. It is a great bike to get into the entry level full suspension bike. It is a "Real bike" (Not Wal-mart) but still inexpensive.

Weakness:

Derailleurs need upgrading, and the v-brakes have got to go. When upgraded it has a more professional feel. I would like a longer travel Fork also.

If you are looking for a downhill bike or a hardcore professional race bike, this is not for you. However for getting around town, riding to school, And hitting the trails for a few hours on the weekend this would be a great bike for the money. Some of the components can be upgraded as they wear out to make the bike even better.

Strength:

perty, light, good parts

Weakness:

FRENCH, rear triangle, forks

this bike never worked right from the day i bought it. every time i took it out for a ride i would have to spend hours on end fixing it. i must say in its defense when it worked it wasnt that bad. it is french after all so you cant expect too much. but the bottom line is, it is too high maintnence to be any fun. oh and i am being nice with the two flaming chillies because this bike is very flaming.
