    Pros: Dual suspension; Front disk brake; Twenty- one speeds

    Pros: Lightweight frame, strong crank, strong welds, easy to manuever, stylish
    Cons: shifts funny, has hard time grabbing some of the more extreme gears for uphill climbing.

    Pros: Cheap, good looks
    Cons: Brakes, suspension, pedals, no quick release rear hub. Derailuers fall out of adjustment.

    Summary: I bought this bike as a supplement to my current Santana Picante tandem. I wanted a cheap single bike I could ride on the trails around the house. My expectations for a $200 or less bike were very low, but they are hardly met with this bike. I loved ... read more

    Pros: front disk brake, aluminum frame, heavy duty rims and tires
    Cons: Sram derailers, not unisex, no hand protectors, not entirely aluminium, cheap details, cheap seat

    Summary: I got this bike a couple of weeks ago for my birthday two weeks from now. It is cool that my wife allows me to buy myself the gifts! I did the same thing 2 years ago, so I can compare XR 200 directly to XR 150 (passed on to my kids now) Let ... read more

    Pros: Looks,handling,weight
    Cons: Seat, gears

    Summary: The looks are very sleek, very nice frame, and excellent wheels, it rides smoothly and it's very very light in my opinion. The one big problem besides the gears not engaging properly sometimes is the uncomfortable seat. After 1 hour your butt will be ... read more

    Pros: Great brakes. Light weight. Very smooth suspension for a dept store bike.
    Cons: Inaccurate component description Cheesy Graphics

    Summary: My XR200 is very nice as far as department store bikes go, although it costs more than most department store bikes, so that is to be expected. The derailer(sp??) is not shimano as all the specs say... It is SRAM, I don't know much about their higher ... read more
