I love this bike. Got this as a gift from my family, when our little one started using a "big boy" bike with no training wheels. And, so it started with trips to bike trails and brisk neighborhood rides. I outfitted this thing with a bunch of useful gadgets, specifically the rear rack, rear cargo bag, front/middle cargo bags, bottle cage, and installed an aftermarket Bell seat with a bit more cushioning and shorter overall length. This bike cuts through rock, dirt and mud with ease. I'm a tall guy, and this monster has no issues carrying my height/weight on the trails. It is light, as the construction is all-aluminum. I love the disc brake in the front, it's very responsive and a lot neater than clamp style brakes. Suspension is absolutely superb, this bike absorbs shock so well that it almost feels like a light motorcycle. Speed shifting has its issues however. It's sort of a hit or miss, and sometimes shifting up and down a few times, with fine thumb adjustment until it gets smooth, may be required. Once you are in the gear you want and it works smooth, everything is fine... But on the trails, it's constant up and down, so getting into the exact gear you want can get tricky. Although effortlessly operated, the overall construction of shift switches worries me a little bit, as they are made of somewhat thin plastic. Overall, this is a great bike. This was purchased very well pre-assembled, and kudos to Walmart for great product.
