Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Low standover height compared to reach. (Longer frame) Hydro Disc Brakes, A-symmetric rims have nipple inserts. Huge frame clearance at rear wheel for larger tires.

Cons: No-name "Spinner" forks have poor damping, "clang" on rebound.

Recommendation: No serious issues at this price point. Solid bike.

Pros: Solid bike. Light weight frame

Cons: Somewhat incapable components.

Recommendation: It's a good bike for the most part. I ride really hard and this has caused me to have to replace nearly all the components other than the frame in a matter of 2 months. It's a beginner bike. Good only for street riding.

Model/Year: 4300/1999?

Pros: Long lasting frame!

Cons: Components but you get what you pay for.

Recommendation: For beginners this is a good bike. I bought it several years ago as a hardtail addition to my fleet to ride with my wife. Eventually I upgrades components and repainted the frame. It is my hardtail go to bike. It's even lasted longer than my wife.

Model/Year: 2009 4300

Pros: -Super affordable
-Great starter bike

Cons: -The cheaper components didn't withstand regular, hard riding (several days a week)

Recommendation: I recommend this bike for anyone starting out in the sport who are unsure of whether or not they want to continue it. This bike will get you out on the trail, but if you like it enough to ride it several times a week, the components will not withstand the abuse.

Recommendation: This is my first mountain bike for trails, and i ride in chattanooga with pro riders with 3 thousand dollar bikes and all their fancy gear and i still stay with them- i have ran this hard tail hard! and it has only kept on riding! def reccomend this bike for anyone that wants to start Offroad biking with a bang!
