Strength:

none unless they replace the bacl shock

Weakness:

everyting i have bent the handle bars chopper style, wrecked the rear shock, destroyed both deralers, busted the casset and crankset, tacoed both wheels, destroyed the fork, ovelized the head tube, ripped odd the fronk brake,streached the cables, bent the pedles, and just put the whole thing into shamble

ill give it this though, it is a good bike if u just want suspention and if u are not a hard core rider. as u can c i have other bike that i got after i destroyed my bike. it is a good STARTER to get into freeriding/downhill just to get use to the suspention but a STATER and STARTER only DO NOT get into jumping with it it will destroy it.

Strength:

It has adjustable dual suspension. Sits around 33lbs, comes with kenda tires and has a good brakes. It takes a beating and keeps going.

Weakness:

The coilover leaks fluid and the bottombracket makes noise.

This is not a 1000+$$$ bike, so don't expect it to behave like one. It's an awesome budget bike. One that you won't regret breaking. The fork is adjustable and the rear coilover works great for my weight (185lbs)....except for the leaking part. The Kenda tires that it comes with are great, but the rims are ok. Brakes are excellent and the triggershift is fast. Not bad for 400 bucks.

Strength:

This is a very strong and tough bike. Good full suspension bike for the money. Great bike for beginners. Rides good, feels quick and responsive. V brakes will stop on a dime or nice and smooth. Rims are strong don't warp on hard hits.

Weakness:

Pedals are cheap. The seat is uncomfortable, front derailer not the best, but look at the price. There's not a good place for a water bottle or battery pack for lights. the front tire hits the bottle when the front fork gives in a impact. And the spot under the seat hits the break. This is a heavy bike at 35LBS. But remember all of these things can be fixed with little effort, except the weight. but like I said $475. not $1000.00 + +.

This is a good bike for beginners. It's not as expensive as other full suspension bikes. I've had many wrecks and nothing has been replaced or broken. It has proven to be a very strong and dependable bike; keeping up with others who have more expensive bikes. Still rides like the day I bought it. Good customer service at College Cycle, Rock Hill, SC. Remedy for the water bottle, a small bracket used to raise up the water bottle bracket a little higher to miss the brake under the seat. Although, this is a heavy bike, you cannot hurt the frame.

Weakness:

everthing including the bike frame

This bike is horrible!!!! I had it only two days before the wheels came out of true (on a 1 1/2 foot jump). Shortly after that I tacoed the front and rear wheel. This forced me to put on my Mongoose MGX wheels. What fun that was! The fork seized up on me too. There is absolutly no travel in it what so ever. Just the other day I took a crow bar to the bike and completely stripped it of its parts. I threw the bike (only about 25ft) and the swing arm broke at the shock mount. This is how dangerous this frame is. Although I should have not been that rough on it (taking it off 5 ft. drops). Now I have become more edgumacated on bikes and i have more money to spend.
