    Pros
    I really enjoy this bike. I do not have a wide variety of bikes to compare it to. But it was the perfect price point for budget / quality for me. The Hydraulic Disk Brakes and Remote Shock Lockout are great features that I could never do with out now that I have gotten use to them.

    After putting some decent hours in on this bike I am to the point where I do not want to give it up even after I upgrade to a full suspension bike next year. I will definitely keep this bike in the garage to ride every now and then.

    Cons
    I would probably upgrade to a 2x10 or 1x11 drive system in the future.

    I reviewed this bike back in 2010 but decided to give it an additional review since I have put more than 500 miles on it and put more single track trail time on it. If you are looking for a good hard tail mountain bike then I would highly suggest this one. Although the SRAM X-5 components are not top notch, I have not had any issues and the system shifts smoothly. The mecahnical brakes are a great addition although hydraulic brakes would be a nice upgrade, they are not necessary. As stated, the bottom bracket is a little low but most skilled riders won't notice it too much and you can easily adjust when you know it is there. The only things I would suggest is to purchase a better saddle when getting the bike.

    Pros
    Climbs great, stiff frame-very responsive, handles excellent and great intermediate SRAM X5 components and mechanical BB5 disc brakes.

    Cons
    the bottom bracket is a little low in my opinion...not a deal breaker in purchasing the bike only that I have catapulted my rear tire many times on a down stroke on soft turns... You get used to it since the tires catch once it lands, you just have to trust your tires and skills and not panic.
    Also, as with most new bikes, the saddle had to go!

    It is a great hardtail bike that climbs well and handles well. The bike comes with the Sram X.5 packages which is not the best but better than most. I would make this purchase again if I had it to do all over again.

    Pros
    Great light-weight frame (for a mountain bike), climbs well and very responsive in turns. Mechanical disc brakes are a great edition although I will probably swap them for hydraulic in the future. Don't get me wrong, the mechanical disc brakes are great, you just get much better stopping power with the hydraulic.

    Cons
    Need to replace the saddle, the hand grips and the pedals.

    I already have a list of upgrades, new fork, rims, tires, brakes, derailleurs, grips, pedals, Bars, neck, stem. No need for the upgrades just building on the frame which I love. But a must do is an upgraded saddle!!! I use a WTB Laser V Pro.

    Pros
    Great balance, Easy to ride, Pretty light, Good components.

    Cons
    Rims and tires, and saddle

    I bought the 19.5" frame 2008 model in April 2008, which is pretty much the same as the 09 model. I get frequent compliments from other riders on how good the bike looks and my friends that have taken it for a ride fell in love with it too making comments like "this bike feels expensive" and "it's so easy to ride". The great thing is, this bike isn't too expensive and it is easy to ride. You can't get any better than this dollar for dollar.

    This bike handles a lot of punishment and keeps on going. I'm 6'2" and weigh 260 pounds with a 32" inseam. I first used this bike in combination with weight training because my right knee is bad and I can't run long distances. Now I use this for a lot more than just cardio. It's become a lifestyle. So if I can hit the trails hard and with confidence, I'm sure that it can handle anyone else's punishment outdoors. Just look at one of these in person and you can tell that it's a sturdy bike.

    I've upgraded some of the components like the tires, brake calipers, grips, pedals, and soon to be the front fork. There's nothing wrong with the fork that's on it right now, I would just like more room for adjustment.

    All in all, a great value for someone who's just getting into this sport and is willing to buy upgrades over time.

    Pros
    Strong frame, good components, solid ride, quick shifting (when derailers are set properly)

    Cons
    Brakes and stock tires wore out pretty quick.

    A great bike. I bought mine a summer old at East Burke Sports in East Burke at the end of the season for $350. For $229 at JensonUSA.com, I put on a set of killer Marzocchi forks and now have an awesome ride.

    Pros
    Great frame, descent components

    Cons
    Dart One Rock Shox - crap. Don't work in cold weather
