    Pretty Good

    The Good:

    Tuff, strong, pretty light for the price, and fairly plush.

    The Bad:

    Brakes fade and the stock suspension isn't very good.

    Overall Review:

    I've had this bike for about a year now and it's held up well from all the torture I've given it. I had to replace the fork because it started creaking and so I went for a boxxer and it's much better. I also had to replace the rear shock because I blew through the bottom out bumper. I replaced it with a fox van rc and it feels much more plush. The brakes are strong but kind of spongy and fade everyone once in a while but for the price it's really good. Also, I find my self wishing for a slightly slacker head angle when things get steep and rough but it works fine how it is. Overall it's a great bike for the price and I would recommend it.

    Outstanding bike!

    The Good:

    Light, durable, can take a beating, easy to handle

    I got this bike used, only things i can find, are shifting can be awkward(easy fix) and front shocks make a cracking noise.
