The Good: Very user friendly and comes with a rear lockout which I would have never thought you would get one for it being under $1000.
The Bad: Like the title says a money pit. I've already had to repair it once and don't even mention the brakes(had to replace those too).
I like the bike but I feel like I am going to spend more money fixing it than it is actually worth. As a first time mountain bike owner I don't think I would have chose anything else.
