Heck, for $300 it's a great bike, if it gets you out there using it. Don't concern yourself with "Velosnobs", that think if it's not $3000 and full XTR then it's a piece.
I've had more fun on my first "low end" mountain bike than on any others I've owned since then. The best times I've had are when I was hitting new trails for the first time. Learning how to adapt my BMX skills to the mt. bike, like the bunny hop and log jump. Stream crossings were a refreshing blast back to childhood! Riding with friends who didn't know what they were doing either! Bending forks, breaking parts, falling (sometimes painfully hard!)
Go out and RIDE! Replace parts as they break or wear out, but all in all remember to have FUN!
