    If you can get one its a great FS bike that equals many more expensive bikes.

    Good feeling bike with great components for the money.

    Cons
    Could be lighter, but got such a great deal there is money left over for upgrades.

    Anyone who is looking for a great Cross country full suspension stoke bike at a great price with dependable components.

    Pros
    The suspension is excellent and very responsive. I believe I received a great deal on this bike with the current set up. The SLX components have performed well in many different conditions. The all black bike looks very tough. For the riding I do the tires have performed well. The seat is comfortable up to the 30 mile rides.

    Cons
    The grips were oaky but I recommend Ergon grips to help support the wrist. The one things I really don’t like about the set up is the location of the water battle bracket. It is on the bottom catching all the dirt and mud. I use a camel back all the time now. I have been having problems with the rear brake drag.

    all around great first full suspension bike. good components but could use better crankset. i would recommend this bike to someone looking for a good all around full suspension bike.

    Pros
    great through roots and rocks, climbs good for full suspension, strong ride

    Cons
    a little heavy, bottoms out rear shock pretty easily on bigger obstacles

    I love this bike. It looks good clean and looks good dirty. comes with great kit to start out with. Oh and I-Drive 4 works great.

    Pros
    Full suspension, great kit, sucks up the rocks like a champ, and climbs like a demon. I-drive 4 is impressive.

    Cons
    Shimano Dior shifters take up alot of space on the handlebars and the Brake levers aren't very adjustable.
