    I'd buy it again. Great price/value. In 2 yrs, I've upgraded the pedals, hand-grips, seat, and more aggressive tires to match the terrain.

    Pros
    Been riding it for 2-years now. Solid frame, great breaks, easy to maintain, fun ride.

    Cons
    Pedals seized after wet ride.

    Amazing bike! Affordable, takes a beating and keeps on running! Buy it! It may be the last bike you ever own for cross country, some technical and everyday smashing into things.ProsExcellent Frame, aggressive tires, affordable, a 'take you anywhere' hardtail. Excellent value, and dependable bike. Smashed more than 2000KM of hardcore technical on this bike, and will never sell it.ConsNone really - rear deraileur is a little open, and tends to take many hits on technical trails - but never needed to replace it after easily 2000KM!

    I just got this bike as my first "real" mountain bike. Mine has the hydraulic disk brakes and it was only $500. Been great so far. I'm learning how to wheelie and other very beginner tricks/techniques on it and it has been great.

    Pros
    Great components and frame for the price

    Cons
    Heavy, the rims got a little out of true very easily

    Bought this 09 back in Sept. to start losing weight....and I have. Bought it because of the strength of the Triple Triangle. Bike is probably a little heavier than some other models, but I feel (opinion) it's kind of overbuilt....like the rider. I ride 13 mi home 2-3 per week, and have just started doing some offroad trails. Loving the bike for both. Would definately recommend this bike...especialy if strength is your priority vs. a little less weight.

    Pros
    Really strong frame for this heavy rider.

    Cons
    None at this time

    Overall this is a great bike for a beginner. We liked it so much we purchased the woman's version for my fiance.

    Pros
    Disc brakes, good quality tires. Good mid-range components. Good price

    Cons
    Does not have hydraulic brakes on this version (most on 2009 version do)
