I have run this bike everyday for a year with no problems at all. This bike is good for on road & off road cycling. I have ridden Xc races, downhilled, dirt jumps, & pump tracks with this bike. I also run it as my get to work bike which is a 20 mile round trip mostly uphill, and apart from normal maintance no work has been needed to be done.
That said the Suntour XCT V2 fork ain't the best, but what do you expect for a bike that cost £250.00. What is good is the quality of the frame, Giant make all there own tubes for the frame so quality is assured.
all in all the bike has been a great buy, i have no regrets & i have certainly had my moneys worth out of it already & that's all you can ask for.
