This bike is great! It seems to have a solid frame, mostly good components and a very affordable price. If you tried to buy a Trek, Marin, Novara or K2 with all the stuff on the Kinley, you would be paying double the price.
I am not sure about the rear shock at this time. I have heard some bad things about it and I think I will replace it eventually, but for now it is good.

If you want an entry level, full suspension bike, this is a great option. Compare it to others and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
Yes I would recommend it to a friend

The absolute best components for the money anywhere!! You can't beat the deal on this for real company and hardcore mountain bike! Great XC riding a smooth in the downhills and to top it all off it's a brand new company (started in 2005) so they are all about their product and helping you in any way! I think I found my go to company!
None so far... but if there are any I'll amend this write-up.
These guys are for real and have a great product on their hands. I got the FX for 600.00 on an '05 closeout sale and it retailed for 899.00. But you're getting it direct from the manufacturer so it is definitely worth at least 40% more than that, ask anyone at Giant, Trek, or Cannondale and they'll tell you that the retailers markup is AT LEAST 40%. All Shimano XT components, dual suspension, and a rugged frame, there's no other bike out there for such a price!
