sticky, very low quality fork
this is a great entry level bike for a teenager. I rode mine for a few years, then started mountain biking. I rode it hard. For an entry level bike, this rides like a champ! Eventually I tweaked the frame so it couldn't keep a rear axle straight, but by that time I was ready to move up to a real mountain bike. after 5 years of riding, the paint was still very glossy, and could have passed for a much newer bike if it wasn't for the rock chips.
I also put a hydraulic disc brake on the front that a friend gave me.
