Solid components for the money. Great bike for a beginner.
Broke rear one of rear sprockets the other day - not sure how.
I paid $300 for it at Oshman's a couple of years ago - well worth the money. Bikes with the same components at bike shops were $800 or more.
Yes I would recommend it to a friend

I like just about everything on this bike. Could be better, but for an affordable full sespensions you can't expect to much
Trigger shifters, I hate them. The bottom shock froze up on me one time. It was fully compressed and would not come apart. After getting it back the the truck we fully dissasembled the shock, replaced the oil with some trusty Penzoil 30 weight (proly not recommended) and I've had no problems since then.
Great bike. Pretty strong, I'm 6', 215 lbs (mostly muscle, but fading fast) so I'm pretty hard on equipment, but I've taken some 3 footers with this bike without any problems. I'm sure if I kept it up the bike would eventually get mad at me, but so far so good. I'm looking to upgrade the rear shock, and eventually the front ones as well. Overall I really like this bike, I can't imagine anything better for the price. It does everything I ask it to with a smile on it's face,....and mine.
