I've had this bike for a few months now. I mostly use it to take 10 mile treks on dirt roads in the Florida Everglades. Only guessing but I probably have near 100 miles on this bike. On my last trip the left crank nearly fell off. I'm glad I recognized the looseness before I lost the nut as I was 6 miles in from the road. I read elsewhere that the Truvativ Isoflow drivetrain on this bike is notorious for its left crank becoming loose.

For the rest of the bike, it has been holding up well. There are two pre-threaded holes on the lower part of the frame for an accessory attachment which I have used for a water bottle. I wished they would have provided another pair of holes on the upper part of the frame for an additional accessory.

Update 8/23/09: There was a clamp in the box that I did not realize until now that it goes under seat and pairs up with the height adjustment clamp to provide two attachment points for another accessory. Once attached the seat is no longer adjustable until you remove the accessory bracket.

For the quality components that this bike has: 7005 aluminum frame, Hayes Disc brakes, Fox Vanilla rear suspention, Manitou Axel comp 120mm, Shimano LX and Acera, and the truvative cranks, the price cannot be beat! The suspension is very smooth and provides a great ride over rocks and bumps. I love to use the bike for light downhill riding at the Sundance resort in Utah, and short cross country trips up on the Bonneville Shoreline trail. To add to my love for this bike is the Geometry. The bike does not bob like other full suspension bikes, which is important for a more enjoyable uphill riding experience when you need to throw your weight into your pedaling.

The only downside to this bike is its weight. It is a heavier bike, but when you consider it has 120mm (5 inches) of travel it seems a little bit easier to over look it. I think it weighs around 35 pounds. Names like Specialized and Gary Fisher may sell a similar bike that weighs around 24-28 lbs with similar components but will cost you 2 to 3 times more.

The bottom line is this is a great bike if you want a smooth ride and are not looking for competitive riding type bike. I really enjoy this bike and would recommend the bike to anybody.

Size Name: Medium Verified Purchase
This bike looks diferent, and the pivot point makes it comfortable. This bike has a 5" travel and it absorbs a lot of shock from the road and handles bumps well. Some of the others say the left crank comes loose, I havnt had any problems at all and I ride about 8 miles a day 6 days a week.... Now that I've had this bike for 4 month's and put it through it's paces, I'm noticing that the left crank "is" starting to make a little squaking noise just as some of the other review's say. It's still comfy and I like it, so I'll get the tool's to keep it tight if it need's. For new buyer's of this bike, I sudjest taking the crank bolt's off, clean the threads with alcahol and lock-tight the bolt's when the bike arives.

Bought it two weeks ago. Relatively easy to put up, allen set a must. Few systems to adjust. Rides in silence, changes gears smoothly. Yet to ride off-road, but prospects are good. Seems to be manufactured in 2008, but matched exactly the advertised picture. Arrived in perfect condition.
Friends were impressed by the looks, and yes, it does looks great, plus I am satisfied with the ride.
Very good business, so far.

Size Name: Small Verified Purchase
The bike arrived I put it together then took it to a bike shop for reassurance. There are no instructions
The seat post is very long. I had to cut an inch off the bottom to have my feet fit comfortably on the pedals.
The suspension is very nice, absorbing bumps and saving wear and tear on my body. Off road it reduces the bike's tendency to bounce around and maintains traction.
For the money it is a good value.
As its name says it's a mountain bike and would not be a good choice to ride primarily on the road at least not with the tires it comes with

This is a high quality bicycle with high end components. Very strong 7005 aluminum frame with 5 inches of travel rear suspension with 120 mm front shock. Very smooth suspension. Have owned this bike for over 3 months and ride it 4 or 5 times a week with no problems. Was very easy to put together. Bicycles of this quality in other makes start at about $1400 so I am very glad I found this deal on the internet. Delivered to my front door in perfect condition. I don't ride competition or rough terrain so this bike will last a lifetime. I believe mine is a 2004 or 2005 model with a Vanilla Fox hydraulic rear shock as opposed to the Manitou air shock in the 2006 and 2007 models, but I am very happpy with the shock. Set the preload one time and forget it.
