    Quality wise it is probably fine and likely manufactured in one of the same factories as the lower end mountain bikes from the big-name bike makers. From a warranty and support standpoint I'd prefer one of the low cost frames from from Performance, Bike Nashbar, Pricepoint, or even Bike Island.

    I have both a 510 and a 516. The 510 is my wifes in size 15 and I have the 516 in 17". The 510 is a tad on the heavy side, you could feel that my 17" was less than her 15" in your hands. But both frames have held up great, when I first got it I was in the 230# range geared up. Bike felt stiff as can be.
    I have a 19" forge frame hanging in the barn, its a rebadged 2004 giant rainier. Would sell cheap as its to big for me. Pm me of interested.

    I just built a 20''

    It may be heavy, but i'm coming from a cromoly frame so it feels light as hell to me.

    I got it for $50 only have about 100 miles on it, but it feels quite good.

    Bought one and built it up for my g/f. It's really not a bad frame at all. Sure, a little heavy but not nearly as heavy as a junk Walmart level bike, at least not the complete bike. She likes it alot. For the price, it's hard to beat IMO.
