On the Sorrento you can find your own way, because not all who wander are lost.

My perspective on the bike:
I have built about a dozen bikes, so it only took me about 20 minutes to build and tune this bike. It went together very easily. The derailleurs come pre-installed with the cables hooked up, and they shift straight out of the box, but shifting is very clunky and slow. After a few minutes of adjusting I had them working and shifting much better. The brake pads were pre-installed too, but they were poorly aligned and needed to be adjusted as well. Basically, don't trust anything on the bike that is already put together. Double check and adjust everything yourself, and the bike will work and ride well.
Overall, I'm pleased with the quality of the bike for the price. The frame is very solid and light, as are the double wall aluminum wheels.
My only real complaint is that the front fork is a joke, but I expected that at this price point. The fork is very 'sticky' and does not operate smoothly when compressing or rebounding. Hopefully it will smooth out once it gets more miles on it. This is why I subtracted one star and rated it a 4. However, at this price you really can't expect to get a decent suspension fork since a bottom end hydraulic fork will cost you ~$200, which is almost as much as this whole bike costs. If I was to ride this bike with my riding buddies on hard trails, the fork would really hold me back.
Everything about the bike is awesome. It's a HUGE step up from the $99 Wal-Mart Schwinn in every way. Its light weight, and pedals easily. The front suspension fork makes riding over bumpy trails much more comfortable, and less scary, than the rigid fork on the old bike.
The bike is very confidence inspiring and easy to ride and has my girlfriend trying out new trails that she wouldn't have attempted before... so its totally worth it. I did a LOT of research before buying this bike, and I think that its the best quality mountain bike that you can get for under $300. Don't expect to blast down the hard trails or win any races on it, but its a quality bike and worth every penny of the CHEAP price tag.
-Easy to assemble for the most part
-Rides great, easy and fast
-Good for beginners
-Nice, big wheels
-Comes with front and rear reflectors
-I think the handlebar is not aluminum. Mine has 2 very small, but rusty spots after I left it in the rain for one day.
-Rear derailleur, though all of them, are difficult to set if you don't know what you're doing. Setting up your brakes is easy, but takes a while.
-Doesn't come with a stand that allows your bike to sit still
-One of my cable wires tore before I even rode it, though it might have been because I didn't know what I was doing while setting my gears. Had to replace it. Be careful.
I don't particulate like the tires, I have ridden it for less than 10 miles and already had a flat.
This bike has not been off the paved bike path and that's all I plan to do. I'm 60 and just want to exercise. The tires make a humming noise and they are obviously for dirt and mud and mountain climbing, I already ordered a pair of less aggressive tires.
The seat is as hard as the rocks that you find as you going up the mountain, I also purchased a seat for my tush.
Mind you, it does not come with water bottle, kickstand, night lights or air pump.
The bike is really easy to put together, less than 30 minutes.
I think it will be a really nice bike for me when I'm done with it.
