    I say for entry level riding you can't go wrong I have had for 5 years and it's done the job. I'm looking to upgrade now. This bike has never left me stranded

    Affordable, very reliable takes a beating

    Low end shifting parts and junk forks

    Overall I love the bike, first bike I have had with disc breaks and they are great. I ride about everyday and it has mostly held up, over all it is a great beginners bike.

    Light frame, good handle bars and breaks, handles well in mud and water

    Plastic pedals and single clamp shifter and breaks

    Good starter bike

    Great handler bars and shifters. Wheels have great grip. Suspension does great on the trail!

    If you plan to, or do ride aggressively, I would not recommend this bike. If you are looking for a budget bike, and you are not concerned with becoming an aggressive rider, then this bike will probably work fine for you.

    Seems to be a great frame. Strong, and nice lines. Price point is there for sure.Good for an entry level rider who does not plan on getting to aggressive, or even a seasoned rider, who doesn't get real aggressive.

    The jury is still out, but I will say that on my first "real" ride... 3 hours...15 miles...single track...some technical stuff...one of the pedals completely stripped from the crank, and came off while turning into a chute. Not cool. The components seem to be of lesser quality fr sure. Most are saying it's a good value, entry level bike, and that if you replace the parts with better ones as they break, you will eventually have a really nice bike. I might be returning mine. tough I am technically a beginner, I am more aggressive by nature, and I pick things up fast... I believe I need more bike right from the start.
