Hello everyone, I just got into Mountain biking after being bmx rider for years. I am oversees in japan and picked up a giant Rock1 , I have searched online but couldn't find much information about this bike. does it have an U.S. equilvalent with a different name or anything like that?

They sell them in Europe too. They don't appear to be sold in the United States. Click here. (http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-GB/bikes/mountain/2450/32675/)
It'd be equivalent to either the Yukon, Rincon or Boulder models, it's got a mixture of parts that'll be found on all those models.

Thanks for the answers, is this a decent entry level bike or is it kind of a piece of crap? Are there any componets that really should/could be replaced or upgrade? Like I said before I'm new to the sport but from the few times I have been out I know I'm gonna get into it big time, it's a blast. mostly the area I ride is cross country with a few steep fast downhills.
Ride until it breaks. Maybe upgrade brakes if you are worried about those DH sections.
