    They are known for making really cheap and low quality stuff... 7lbs for a carbon frame? Yikes. I know they make some trials bikes dirt cheap, and their stuff is ok, just expect to replace every moving component on it eventually.

    Thanks! I knew I wouldnt get "Rave" reviews on this one! But found that this bike usually sells for $600 and I can now pick it up in the box for around $200 plus the cost to bring it down to my local bike shop and have them assemble it and tune it. Thought it would be good enough and cheap enough to just have a MTB to kick around.

    Thanks Again!

    I think it would void the warranty if you kicked it....but hey its your money

    Old thread I know. But I figured I'd post some pics on my Tank. Well mine lasted me a couple years before I got a few cracks in the frame. I liked the bike. Just wish it would have lasted longer for me.






    Crack runs from side to side.
