Strengths:    GT Helion Comp...efficient drivetrain. suspension feels like it has more than 110mm of travel. decent components on the base model. quite comfortable for a XC bike.

Weaknesses:    GT Helion Comp If you set the rear shock too light... it will lead to countless pedal strikes (compared to my other GT bikes) other than that none really.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is VERY different from the old I-Drive bikes. Travel is smooth and feels more than enough. I changed the components to Sram x-9 trail and an x fusion fork with Easton bar, stem and seatpost. mavic cross roc wheels. at this point I couldn't ask for better.
