The frame is excellent, very strong and mine has taken a lot of knocks. Mine is a Hard Rock comp disc '08. The tyres and wheels ar good quality
Done 2000 miles on and off road in a year and the gear shift is poor, the brakes are not the best but replacing the factory pads with decent avid pads helps. The SR suntour forks are terrible, locking up when wet due to poor seals. The seat post clamp broke easily.
The frame is so good that it's worth buying this bike and upgrading the weak point. Mine has Rock Shox Tora 318 forks and handles really well thanks to this upgrade. It's a good entry level bike and is fun to upgrade - I fitted a Syncros stem and a Raceface Evolve flat bar and this made the bike a lot lighter.
