    Good bike if your not into bumpy trails or pump tracks.

    Pros
    Priced well. I got mine for $600 from Bikes and Moore in Hopkinsville, KY. Rides well and not overly heavy. Good grips, derailers, and bars.

    Cons
    The SR shock is garage. I had to adjust it to the max and it still bottomed out on me and I'm only 195 lbs. First thing to go get replaced.

    I would recommend this bike. But be aware, once you get it, you will want to make several quick upgrades to make it a smoother ride.

    Pros
    Price. My entry bike into mountain biking. Serves as a nice XC/Trail hardtail or a bike to ride gently while with your family.

    Cons
    Horrible stock SR Suntour XCR fork, Should be updated quickly. Head tube angle of 71 degrees is too steep for any serious fun.

    It's my first mountain bike as an adult. I love it. As soon as my cracked rib heals I'll be hitting the trails again.

    Pros
    Very solid bike.

    Love this bike and would definitely recommend it.

    Pros
    Good starter bike, easy to get used to and rolls over roots, rocks, and other things easily. Easily to upgrade when you're ready.

    Cons
    A little heavy, stock fork leaves a lot to be desired. Components should be updated over time.

    Fun bike, love its ride-ability and multifunctional capabilities to take on the trail or a paved path.

    Pros
    The price is a definite plus on this bike. You get quite a bit of bike for our buck. High quality with a more reasonable price.

    Cons
    Would love a bit more adjustable suspension on the fork.

    I converted mine to rigid with a PRO carbon fork. It was a good bike

    Pros
    Great cross country geo, light, eccentric pinch bolt BB

    Cons
    RS Recon is a bit heavy

    The fork is not as responsive as a rigid carbon. Once there is a load on it it pretty much just stays there. If you are riding smooth packed flat trails then this is the bike for you. For a little higher price point just buy something in the Fuse line.

    Pros
    Price

    Cons
    Component group is junk

    Overall nice well balanced rig. Fun to blast up and down some singletrack!

    Pros
    Great all around trail bike

    Cons
    Cheap pedals
    Need better grips
    Forks are ok but could use an upgrade for tougher terrain

    I highly recommend this bike to anyone who is looking to start mountain biking on the regular. It is well worth the money

    Pros
    The bike rides well, the geometry feels great for my 6 foot frame. Handles all kinds of terrain without issue. Hydraulic brakes are awesome!

    Cons
    Doesn't need 27 speeds. They could have built this bike as a 2x9 and I'd be fine with it.
