    Comments:

    I've only had the bike for about two months now, and for my local trails it has worked fine. I haven't had any real problems with this bike either, except for the fact that the suspension fork only has the options open or closed. I would prefer a way to have it only half way open. Other than that I cannot complain about the bike for the price.

      Comments:

      I purchased this bike about two months ago from the local trek store. I have used it to commute around town and ride some of the trails New Mexico has to offer. I've done some easy trails as well as some moderate downhill and single track. The components are entry level but have done very well in both situations. The one thing I changed right away was the front fork. I'm 6'0 and 230 lbs. The suntour fork felt bouncy on the trails and would bottom out easily under my weight. All in all for a "sports" mountain bike I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I would definately recommend to a friend.

      Worst Bike I Have Owned

      • Not Much

      Comments:

      This is the worst bike I have ever owned. The AT-550 wheels are terrible. I've had to have the LBS true them and now I have a broken spoke. These are single walled rims on a mountain bike. Why??? Also, the forks stink as well. I guess I'm going to need to do something about these rims to even think about riding it. Not happy. :-(
