Spark 50 Rocks!
Pros: I have owned several quality MTBs and this is my favorite. Smooth ride and great tracking with rear suspension set up. The handlebar LOCK for rear suspension as a cool functional feature I enjoy. The rear pivet arm was replaced at no charge due to crack. Juicy components are fine quality. Replaced Alex rims. Bent one on hard trail. Granny gear is very low for verticals.
Cons: Alex rims are light but not too tough.
Comments: Very please. Geometry is very comfortable. Going on 3rd year and still strong.Try it you'll like it.
