    Would recommend buying for a first bike or anyone looking for a cheap full suspension.

    Pros
    I purchased this bike used from a friend for really cheap and boy have I put some use on this bike. I ride everything from xc to more all mountain which I know this bike isn't made for but it has handled it. I've pushed this bike way past its "limits" hitting 15-20 foot tables and all sorts of drops. It didn't let me down until I hit a 15 ft road gap and taco'd the front wheel on landing. Purchased a new wheelset and she's back out on the trails.

    Cons
    When I purchased the bike I replaced the fork as the Dart 2 was garbage. This could have been due to negligence of the previous owner who knows. Either way the Rock shox 30 Gold I put on it was a welcomed upgrade.

    Great upgrade for me from my old Mongoose. Overall decent entry level dual suspension bike for recreational MTBing. Fairly light too, mine weighs 31Lb.

    Pros
    Front & rear suspension and disc brakes.

    Cons
    OEM seat & pedals, which i replaced.

    Bottom line is that in my opinion this bike is a great deal for the cash. I did everything my friend did on his $2800 bike with no problems besides eating a few times which is obviously not the bikes fault. The breaks were great, shifting was ok but could be better but not that much that id have them changed until they are useless. I would definately reccomend this bike to someone that doesnt have alot of cash to blow on a bike like me. For under 900 bucks u have a great bike. Able to do what most others can do. And the warrantee Giant gives you is not bad as well. Lifetime on the frame and i cant remember how long on parts.

    Pros
    I liked the hard rear shock. The handling was much better than I had read in alot of the reviews for this bike. The gear shifting was good but would slip here and there. Not a big deal. I tuned it myself and started shifting perfectly. This is my 1st mountain bike but had done off road when i was a kid all thru my teenage years on bmx bikes and have been riding a hybrid Raleigh sc30 for the last few years just for exercise but got bored of just that str8 line riding on the road. My friends have been trying to get me into Mountain biking for awhile and i finally gave in and got this bike. The price for what it delivers is not bad. My 1st ride was today at Markham Park and i must say im hooked. I already bent my rear disk when i ate the ground a few good times and i didnt even worry about it. Just bent it right back and is just fine.

    Cons
    Front forks are way to soft for a rider my size as opposed to its rear shock which was just right. I didnt need much experience to figure that one out for myself. The saddle can be better but its not really bad. The grips i will probably change soon as they kill my hands.

    Its a great price, and will work for anyone.

    Pros
    Great bike, smooth and fast. Will last a life time if maintained and upgraded. I have the 09 Yukon it makes for a great ride.

    Cons
    Upgrade the chain and shifters asap. You will want to upgrade the peddles asap as well.

    Great buy for the price this bike will last forever if you treat it right and upgrade the components.

    Pros
    This bike has been great, It takes everything I can give it and asks for more, it actually the best bike under 800 dollars as rated by mountain bike action.

    Cons
    When I first got it had some problems with the drive train slipping but with tunning and tinkering it is solid now, also a little on the heavy side but what do you expect.
