Pros: PDS - Price, DURABILITY and Style.

It rode true all the way until the end. The end being, I bought a brand new 29er. Back in it's hay-day, this bike and me would out ride any of guys that i rode with. 80% was the bike and 20% was me. This outperformed all my friend's bikes with regards to durability. Not once did it break down.

Cons: I had to have the new and latest and greatest toy out there, AKA A 29er.

Pros: Great Beginner Mtn Bike


Cons: Heavy

Pros: The bike handles well has kept it fun riding and rode it a year stock before upgrading so it came with decent components

Cons: Had shifting problems and i didnt like the stock forks. So i upgraded!!!

Recommendation: The rear Derailleur(replaced w/Sram X.5),Shifters/Brake levers(X.4 & avid), Forks(replaced w/Dart 3) and Headset(replaced w/ FSA Pro Pig DH). I just ordered the cockpit from FSA and cant wait. I am not a wt freak so i went for sturdiness. This bike is a great start point for the weekend warrior.

Pros: the bike is nice and nimble. I actually might lose my treecrasher title, since I seem to be able to avoid more trees. Guess I will just have to go faster and see what'll happen!

Cons: sometimes gives alittle problem shifting

Recommendation: A good bike for all sorts of riding, it will handle quite a bit of abuse

Pros: Disk Brakes, Kenda Tires, 100mm shocks

Cons: Grips could be a little better

Recommendation: I purchased the 2009 model a few weeks ago and riding it has has been a blast. I like having the Disk brakes and the Kenda tires keep the bike stuck to the track. The 100 mm shock take the bump out of the track and handle log pile very well.. I do plan to change out he grips. While the work well, I like a little more cushion. This is a great bike for a beginner or an advanced rider

Pros: it was given to me

Cons: grips, brakes, some shifting problems

Recommendation: this was the first mountain bike i ever had. given to me by a friend, very old, don't know what year, before i stopped riding it, it was basically falling apart. it wasn't a bad bike, i just don't think i knew what i was doing. i'm sure the newer models are completely diffrent and 10x better. i'm sure this review isn't really helping anyone. i'm sorry

Pros: Low cost, durability, looks

Cons: No disc brakes, handle grips

Recommendation: I purchased this bike in April 2007. If I would have known how much I love riding trails when I bought the bike, I would have gotten a better Giant bike. I thought I would mainly ride it in the street for exercise. All things aside it is an awesome bike and does just what I need it to do while on the trails. It is the same bike with a different frame as the trek 4300. I love the ride and the feel of the bike and will be a Giant owner for a long time.
