    rode once stock wasn't too shabby for a 400$ bike, since then I've upgraded to maxxis minion 27.5-2.30 tires, raceface turbine handlebars, smaller stem, manitou markhour forks, shimano M6000 hydro brakes/calipers, DMR V-8 pedals and taking it monday to have a completely new SRAM drivetrain installed and get rid of the 3x8 stock setup w/ the kiddie looking front derailleur & shifter(s)ProsDecent bike for the price, frame is super nice and worthy of high end componentsConsForks are heavy and like having a pogo stick up front, tires suck, brakes could be better, basically they slapped bottom of the barrel components on a nice frame

    Zip tie the cables in place, swap out the pedals, bars and stem too if you're gonna get serious with this bike. Upgrade to a better tire too.ProsGreat looks, love the shifters, saddle not too bad, good brakes, double walled rims, once I took it to a bike shop to get it tuned up (Dick's don't know how to do shit to these bikes!), it shifts great, stops on a dime, and feels very solid now! Great price as well!! Had mine saved in my Dick's cart at the $299.99 price, called their customer service, and got the bike for $307.00 total. Couldn't have been happier!!ConsFront fork leaves a lot to be desired, if you're serious about mountain biking, which I'm not, YET! Plastic pedals kinda suck (swapped mine to Rock Bros XC's immediately). Plastic cable clips suck. Tires are kinda thin.

    Buy with confidence. A lot of bike for the money.ProsDecent components for the price. (got mine for $280 after being on sale plus another 20% coupon) Neon colors are pretty cool looking (I have the blue one). Derailleurs and brakes worked well right out of the box. Fit and finish is pretty decent for a bike in this price range.ConsTires and fork. if you are going to do any real trail riding you may want to replace these components after a while. Fork is not horrible, just not made for serious trail work. I even replaced the pedals and the handlebar for a wider one but that was just personal preference. After the upgrades, the bike has turned out to be a decent trail machine.

    Highly recommend the bike for someone who is just getting into the sport. The bike is low enough in price that it is not an unreasonable purchase for a beginner, but quality is high enough that the bike will continue to perform as your skill increases. Intermediate riders will feel at home on the Aggressor Pro as well.Pros-Price is very reasonable.
    -Decent components, above average for the price.
    -Bike is stable and very maneuverable.
    -Reliable and solid.
    -Surprisingly quite on rougher trailsCons-It is a little heavy.
    -Front fork leaves a bit to be desired, but it is by no means awful.
    -Front derailleur is quite possibly the lowest quality component on the bike. It does work but be prepared to make adjustments.

    This was the first mountain bike, or at least the first bike that was made with the purpose of being ridden on single track that I owned. It had mostly cheap components that likely won't last long but if you're hard for money, this'll do. After using this bike, I learned that getting a cheap bike doesn't really pay. The bike is useful if you need something to ride around town and also want to it to ride in the dirt. I cruised this many miles on the streets of Philly, and had many a field day on the trails of the Wissahickon.

    Pros
    Light weight aluminium frame. Decent handling. Capable wheels and tires.

    Cons
    Crappy fork. Lackluster shifting components and brakes.

    I ride this bike pretty hard and it has held up very well. It might not have the newest "top of the line" gear on it but it is still getting the job done and I don't have $1000 or more to plop down on a new MTB. I might "upgrade" one day but for now I still love my old GT.

    Pros
    Tough, lightweight, it's mine and I am not making any payments on it!! Ha!

    Cons
    The Suntour MG80 fork is bottom of the barrel but hey it still bounces and handles the bumps. No other cons really I guess. I haven't managed to "break " anything yet!!

    Well, it's been a year now since I've owned my Fury. I have taken the bike to multiple bike parks, a downhill/freeride course and also participated in my first dh race. Of the bat, I realized the bike needed some upgrades so I started changing out the parts. The bike felt great (stock), but it seems it would be more capable if some of the parts were upgraded. A SRAM medium 9 speed derailleur to a Shimano short cage 10 speed ZEE derailleur and the 165mm Gravity MotoX was changed to a 175mm Zee crank. Also, the 800mm handlebars are a tad too wide, so I replaced it with a 780mm Renthal Fatbar 1" risers. The Domain fork and Fox Van R rear shocks were too plush and had minimal adjustments so I replaced those with Fox 40 Float Fit RC2 and a FOX DHX RC4 for the rear. And last, the brake pads were replaced with metal finned pads since the stock ones did not last at the dh course. Other than that, the bike feels great and very capable of what I throw at it.

    Pros
    Solid frame.
    Long wheelbase makes it steady and fast going downhills.
    Not a bad price for an entry level DH bike.

    Cons
    At 39 lbs, you would feel the weight.
    The longer wheelbase makes it difficult to make sharp turns.
    Upgrades are a must and could cost $$$$

    For an entry level DH bike, I would recommend this, then upgrade the parts as you progress or if the low end parts break. Which ever comes first. Hahaha

    Rockshox Domain fork is set up to 180mm (7 Inches) of travel. You would have to install internal spacers (comes with the bike) and re-adjust the upper fork tubes to get the full 200mm (8 Inches) of travel.

    Pros
    27.5
    203mm disc brakes.
    Long wheelbase compared to other manufacturers with the same frame size.
    Very predictable and easy to ride considering it is a DH bike.
    39 lbs (medium frame and no pedals).
    Tons of potential.

    Cons
    SRAM X5 medium cage derailleur.
    SRAM double thumb shifter (personal opinion)
    Catalog claims to have Continental tires but received Maxxis tires instead.
    Only rear hub is Shimano Zee.
    39 lbs (medium frame and no pedals).
    Need upgrades.
