I really like this bike On: 2010-09-01
I bought this bike a few months ago mainly to ride back a forth to work (about a mile each way) but I like riding it so much I find myself looking for excuse to ride it more. The 21 gears change smoothly, the brakes work really well and are quiet. The seat is even fairly comfortable and the dual suspension gives a good ride. I really like the way it looks and I get compliments on it too, so I guess I am not the only one that thinks that. I had it assembled so I cannot comment on the instructions. I am not a avid cyclist and I know it does not compare to the really expensive bikes those kind of people ride but for exercise and fun riding you cannot beat it.
Can't beat the price On: 2010-05-05
Its been quite a few years since I owned a bike and thus I was a little hesitant going from a $700 bike (previous one) down to one that was less than $300...but Im happy. Im not an expert biker or one that is planning on doing anything but leisurely stuff so this works well.
The only "changes" I plan to make are to get some smoother tires for the road (these are pretty rough) and the only real "issue" I have is the lack of space to put anything thus I will have to carry a small backpack that I can keep my lock, pump, repair kit, etc. with me on.
The instructions on putting this together also were pretty lacking. Even though its self explanatory I did have to refer to a picture once.

Picked this bike up for about a hundred bucks (cheaper than most) about six months ago, and now its sitting in my garage until I feel like shelling out a bunch of money. Firstly, I dont know why anyone would pay more than I did for a "mountain" bike with a sticker on it that says "not meant for off road use." Mine was put together by a dept store employee. Had problems basically from the get go, the left crank would loosen up, the brakes are horrible, and just a few weeks ago the freewheel broke. After having a free estimate done at the local bike shop they told me it would be about $150 ($70 for parts) to get it back to par. Though I did not baby this bike, I took fairly good care of it. Other than a couple days on the trails, I would casually ride around town every other day. All in all, I learned a lot of maintenance and lessons for when I buy a true mountain bike.
Dark Bronz..... Two thumbs up!!!!!! On: 2009-07-03
Pros: This bike has really great suspension, quick shifting gears, easy maintenance, nice big fat tires :-) ... great handling on trails and down hill rides. over all, Well worth its price.
Cons: It a bit too heavy going up hill ( about 40-45 pounds), disk breaks are only on the front (since it has one it should be in the back but the other breaks work just as well anyway) my only complaint is the crapy pedals it came with...
I recommend this bike but get your self some good pedals...
Looks good, once you lose the stickers On: 2009-06-09
Once you get rid of the 27 "disk brake equipped" stickers, it looks good. I got this from Amazon, and setting it up was tricky. I am familiar with working on bikes, and getting all of the gears and breaks adjusted correctly proved a challenge.
After I finally got it set up, I found the big knobby tires slowed me down a lot on pavement. So I got a set of Forte Greenways ($20/pair) which are lighter and work a lot better on pavement, while retaining decent grip for tougher terrain.
