Comments:

This bike is a great beginner/intermediate trail rider. I literally bought it and hit awesome [...] trails. On streets or bike paths I can keep up with the best of em. I am an avid warm weather rider and my first year I rode this bike at least 70 miles. Because I ride hard and a lot the front suspension naturally needs an update. If your not riding trails that are technical then you'll be fine.

    Comments:

    I bought this bike for my self and I think it's one of the best bikes I have had in a while. All components of the bike feel great; shifters, brakes, tires, etc. My only complaint about this bike would be the seat. Not that it's uncomfortable but the fact that the screw which is supposed to hold the seat at the correct angle and position keeps loosening up and I have to carry an allen wrench everywhere I go. Went back to the store and they said "you can buy a new seat holder".
