“Sweet bike for a great price”

The Good: Price, full suspension, has everything you need to hit the mountain and jump a couple of ramps (worked great in a 5-6 ft high ramp).. great for beginners and intermediate. Components are basic, but work great.

The Bad: Not a light bike, not a heavy bike. The grips suck, I had to change them after about 2 months of use because one of them got ripped, but not something to worry about.

Overall Review:

A bike that will get you through every obstacle that the mountain has, I feel very confident in this bike, great price for a great bike, works perfectly going downhill really fast, comfortable, kind of slow (not that good) going uphill.

I really recommend this bike for people who are starting to go mtb and for people who want a tough bike that will let them go to their limits, but again, not a pro's bike. Its a fun bike, worth riding it.
