If you don't already know, this bike is the Kent Int. GMC Topkick full suspension Mtn. Bike, without full disc brakes.
If you are looking for a bike that is the best deal for your money, you are in the right ball park.
Pros: Shimano Tourney trigger shifters, properly functioning full suspension, promax front cable operated disc brakes, canti lever rear brakes, 4-point rear swing arm w/ inset spacers for smoother operation( only normally found on more expensive full suspension bikes), nice WTB speed V "style" seat.
Cons: no rear drop-out for rear derailleur,cheap bottom end front/ rear derailleur, poor quality- heavy no-name suspension front and rear, poor quality & heavy handle bars, poor kickstand, cheap and heavy crank arms, cheap bottom bracket that will wear out within 500 miles or less.
overall: for the money it's not bad. the one thing that I look at, is the fact that most of the cons are upgradable for Approx. $100.00 or a little more, if you buy off of ebay and can do your own Bicycle work and maintenance. if you can't do that, then buy the Mongoose or the schwinn full suspension in the $300.00 price range. If you are looking for the cheapest professional quality bikes then look at the Forge saw back bikes, a great deal for the money.
The Genesis 26" Men's V2100 Dual-Suspension Bicycle will get you out on the trails, but If you are too rough on the bike, it might just leave you on the trails. If anything, upgrade the wheels and tires first and then go from there as the parts wear out on you. This bike is not geared towards comfort riding, but stock it's good for crushed lime stone trails, and if you're out of shape the weight won't hurt you, it will just make you stronger! thanks ~Mtn Bike Mike
