Pros: Great value, solid performance, solid components

Cons: I'd like it to be lighter, but for the price? It's super solid!

Recommendation: I had an XLT 1.0 as my main rig for about 3 years, and I rode the snot out of this thing! Great performance, great value (fox fork and fox shock, plus a decent drivetrain? Awesome!).

But at 32ish lbs, this is no feather weight. But if you're looking for an aggressive trail/light AM machine on a budget, check the Dakar XLT out!

Pros: Reasonable price

Cons: cheap components

Recommendation: Good bang for your buck, but if you ride hard, hit jumps or drops this is not the bike for you unless you don't mind upgrading parts as they break.
