  • It looks a bit like the 'Atala Mitho', except for some details such as the breaks. Maybe a different year? Why do you want to know?

    I'm fairly sure it's a "Winner Cheetah 18-speed MTB". And knowing the exact model isn't important because almost all parts except the frame itself are standard between brands.

It's a fairly low-end bike with 26 or perhaps 24 inch wheels. The V brakes suggest that it is at least 5 years old and could be up to 20 years though I'd guess 10-15 based on the lack of boots on the front suspension stanchions.

The front shifter appears to be a thumb lever on a triple crankset, which also suggests a price-conscious design. 18/3 is 6 speed on the rear, which could be a cassette but is more likely to be a 14:28 freewheel.

There is very little space between the seat-tube and the rear triangle, so this bike could hit its own frame on any harder landing. The rider must be a kid or very small adult to reduce this risk.

And it has a kickstand, a common sign of a kid's bike. Nobody riding MTB would have something like that which could deploy on a landing and cause a problem.


It looks like a perfectly rideable bike, albeit for a smaller/younger person. Absolutely fine for riding paths and trails, though probably not suitable for anything aggressive or stunts or big drops.

    The small space between the seat tube and rear triangle does not appear to be a point of contact on a hard landing as the rear triangle will move forward from that point of reference (the pivot is in the BB area), not up into the seat tube.
