    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking for a budget full suspension and I stumbled accross this bike.

    I'm pretty new to the sport and wanted to get your opinions on it. I tried to check out reviews for it, but couldn't find any.

    Thanks,
    Kris

    Yeah, sad to say that although department store bikes often look flashy- the reality is they are overweight, spec'ed very poorly, and more often than not, improperly assembled. You would most certainly be better off picking up something from your local bike shop. If you are tight on cash, there are some great deals to be had by ordering direct from the manufacturer. Check out Ibex, Woodstock, or Kinley for examples.
