Bonelli

Are Bonelli's any good? Specifically the Bonelli Trail XC 3.0 which was introduced to me at a bike shop today. They let me test ride it and it seemed pretty good, but I am a newbie with bikes. It had everything I needed for about $350 CAN: front suspension, a light and durable aluminum frame, and good control. But I want to read some ratings on it before I make the purchase (I want a bike that will last me a few years)...I can't find their website or any reviews about their bikes anywhere at all.

Any help would be much appreciated.

There's a reason why it went for close to 2 years without a reply, no one has ever heard of Bonelli.

I thought I was the only one who'd never heard of Bonelli.

The Bonelli bikes are sold exclusively at Sports Excellence and André Lalonde Sports retailers in Canada.
Look like a step up from Magna quality.

Bonelli!
