I know the one you mean and where you get it from. I won't mention the name of the store as my last recommendation for them was edited! I am an honest buyer and user of their products
Anyway, I've been riding the own branded version of this bike that is a little cheaper and doesn't have hydraulic brakes. I've not ridden any other MTBs but overall I've been really pleased with the bike. You seem to get a lot for your money.
I've done about 600kms and it's lasting very well. In fact, my main criticism would be the front forks and I'm currently keeping an eye on ebay for something a little better. Hopefully this will reduce the number of times I spend flying over the handlebars. But then again maybe not.
So if you're budget is less than $1000 I would definitely recommend it. Best go to the store if you can and have a test ride.
G'Day krunchie, welcome.
I can't find a usable google on this, gotta link?
I agree, the parts kit is well worth it. Can you see one up close? You can get an idea of frame quality from looking at the welds and general symmetry
i think this is the bike that is being discussed - progear bike at cell
like the others, i don't know much about progear but for the money the parts don't look too bad, but get out and try as many bikes as you can before you lay any $$ down cos you're a long time in the saddle if you don't like what you got...
