Pros: Lightweight, inexpensive, durable

Cons: Cassette went pretty quickly, no disc brakes (it is setup for them... So maybe a used set off Craigslist)

Recommendation: I'd buy it again!. I'm 6'1" and weigh 230lbs... I beat the hell out of mine... And have only had to have a new cassette/chain... I take it up and down falcon trail in co springs every week and it still holds up

Cons: uncomfortable seat

Recommendation: This was my first mountain bike and I've been riding it hard for a year now. I'm 6 foot tall and not a lightweight at all and it has held up wonderfully.

Pros: Strong Frame, smooth ride, suspension has adjustment and lock feature, good for price.

Cons: gear change "clunks" as far as seating... I've seen worse, but with padding in shorts, theres no problem.

Recommendation: my first quality bike, you pay what you get for. just proper maintenance and check ups on frame, it should last for a while. But desire to upgrade soon...

Pros: Upgraded suspension to a Dart 3 with lockout. Light frame, solid construction.

Cons: Horrible seat, first thing to be replaced.

Recommendation: After upgrading from a ancient Trek 820 this year I can't believe how much easier life is with a aluminum frame. One of my riding buddies had a 4500 from a few years ago so I took the plunge and did a major upgrade. After the first few rides this year I can say its well worth the money. Smooth shifting and a great bike. The lockout feature on the Dart 3 is well worth the extra money if you do any sort of road or paved trail riding. MSRP is now $659 for the '09 year.
