Strengths:    climbs like a champ
fairly light weight
responsive while climbing
generous tubing
rugged and durable(trust me im a noob and i beat the SH** out of it)
awesome brakes

Weaknesses:    the fork. it doesnt match how good this bike is and i didnt realize how it compared until i got on a couple bikes with good forks. it holds the bike back a lot, but im gonna keep it until it breaks.

the seat...seriously horrible. i swapped it out for the stock seat of a specialized hard rock
the tires. maybe its just me but i always get flats with any air pressure

Bottom Line:   
awesome bike. im learning quick on it. im keeping most components stock until i break them. there are definitely better bikes out there but for 570 you cannot do better. i picked up the following items soon after purchase:

raceface bashguard
wellgo mg1 flat pedals
specialized hardrock seat
5.10 free riders
camel back

my noob set^
