    With a little bread and some time this bike can be a pretty descent ride only problem is once you put in the money you could of just bought the 'sport' version that has the exact same frame but with the crappy parts upgraded...

    Pros
    Solid frame
    Built tough
    Upgrade-able to disc brakes

    Cons
    Cheap fork, pedals, and V brakes

    If you are just getting into biking it isn't the bike I'd recommend. Friendlier geometry can be found at the same price. Instead I'd say it is a good budget backup/commuter bike.

    Pros
    It is a good basic bike. Double wall rims and reasonable set up for entry level with room to grow.

    Cons
    Nothing special at all. The geometry isn't really up to modern specs. Too steep for comfortable handling. Otherwise it is a passable bike.

    Since mounts for disc brakes are available, forks and pedals are easily changed and the bike is solid and an amazing value. It's worth every penny.

    Pros
    • Huge value for a 29er
    • Maybe not top notch, but quality parts
    • Comfortable and natural feeling.

    Cons
    • No disc brakes
    • Comes with plastic pedals
    • SR Suntour Forks

    It's a great low end bike for someone starting out and/or stepping up to a 29er. I'm just getting back into MTB after a 12 year hiatus and I was able to get this for $250. Can't beat it at that price.

    Pros
    Price, value, frame

    Cons
    Pull brakes, no fork lockout, basic components
