Pros: Lifetime guarantee, does everything well

Cons: Bottom bracket clearance

Recommendation: This bike has taken everything I've thrown at it. Fit and finish is great. Everything works well. The only think I wish it had was a little more bottom bracket clearance.

Model/Year: D AM 27.5 2014

Pros: Its nimble, climbs great, durable and has quality components for the price point.

Cons: A little heavy.

Recommendation: This is a great trail bike for the rider looking to get their first full suspension bike and not have to upgrade all the components in a year or two. I've been really impressed with how this bike corners and climbs. Its a nimble bike that will keep you wanting to get back on the trails.
