It''s about what you''d expect from a bike at this price.
The rear suspension is crap. The rear hub is falling apart.
It has 3 pivots, this doesn''t allow the rear suspension to move. The only movement in the back end of the bike is due to flex of the rear triangle, don''t be fooled by the look of the bike, it definitely was not designed by someone who knows anything about bicycle suspension
No I would not recommend it to a friend

I like the feel of the bike. Front disk break and rear break both work well.
Front and rear drailleur could be smoother. Rear shock is a little stiff even after adjusting. I'm not sure if the rear shock is better than no shock at all. Front shock could be smoother.

Overall I think it is a good bike and would recommend it. I was able to pick it up for $135 at Fred Meyer and believe it is a good bike for the price I paid. For the regular retail price of $200 this bike would be a reasonable buy and comparable to other bikes you could buy at department stores for a comparable price. I'm not a die hard biker, so take my opinion for what it is worth. After I have spent more time on the bike, I will try to remember to come back on here and add to my opinion.
