I purchased this bike about one year ago to replace a trek fuel that was stolen. Not to compare the two, I just needed a bike to ride local trails till I had the funds available for a new trek. I thought just to ride this genesis v2100 till it broke down, one month tops, and then dish out the money for a name brand mtb. Turns out this bike can really take a beating. I slowly began to upgrade components, mainly spare parts I had lying around from previous bikes. More than one year later, I have not had the need to replace the bike. Granted, most components have been changed and my point is this. This bike is a great buy for the money. It will get you riding. If you can work on your own bike, it can be upgraded to meet your needs as you go. A bike is only as expensive as the components that are in/on it. High dollar, name brand quality mountain bikes have good components and a very well built frame. I can contest, this bike's frame is well built. What you add to it, only makes it that much better. A great canvas, for good things to come. If you want top notch out of the store, and cant work on bikes, look elswhere. Expect high dollar. If you are handy and can research upgrades, this bike can grow with you as you ride. Thus, you need to look no further, this one is for you. No doubt.
