Frame is ok. Its their big store lineup, so it isn't built for tonnes of abuse. The yakuza is a good pricepoint, but I don't think you can but it in the frame form.

Its a toughy, If you are looking for something to get you started it would be a good place to start, but as you go bigger you have to realize the limits of the frame.

screw lo quality fs. not that that's necessarily lo, but i would recomend a hardtail for anyones first bike then when youv'e "paid yer dues" buy a nice fs, then it'll be much sweeter because you'll appreciate it more on more than one level.
