This bike is a very light bike for a $700 full suspension bike. The disk brakes work well when going through water. They don't take forever to dry and stop like coaster brakes. The tires offer a superb amount of traction.The suspention is a very tough, easily adjustable dream. They take most bumps with ease. This bike is a dream to peddle. The 24 gears are perfect for climbing. The rims are alloy. So they are prety strong and light. This bike also takes jumps with ease. The gears shif with great ease. They don't stall, and they don't miss the gear very offten. You can shif with a ton of preasure on the chain, and it takes it like a charm. This bike is a great bigginers bike!
I would recomend buying the bike in a kit, so the people at the store don't mess it up. I would also recomed buying thorn resistent inner tubes, the stock tubes suck. You could also replace the plastic peddls with metal ones. After riding the bike for a while your butt starts to hurt, so I recomend buying a better seat. I think if this bike had trigger shifters it would be better, but the stock ones do the job. When the brakes get dirty the squeak.
This bike is a great bike. I got my bike for a deal, $269. I hope you take this bike in consideration. So far the bike is handling just great for me. It holds up great off road. It is great through water and mud. Have fun Hucking.
