It has good points & bad, just like any other "entry level" mountain bike. The double wall rims are a plus. The Shimano 7spd Freewheel (14-28t) rear cog is not. Better bikes, like a Diamondback Response use a Shimano HG20 7spd Cassette (12-28t).

A "freehub" with a cassette always beats a "freewheel" hub. Stronger. Please see 3rd link from Sheldon Brown's web site.
