Strengths:    Rides great, super plush downhill, Strong but light, Rear axle standard is a nice upgrade

Weaknesses:    None really if you have a platform rear shock or lock out for long climbs

Bottom Line:   
This was a warranty replacement frame for my 2010 650b2 (chain stay welds), It has all the great attributes of my earlier bike with a much beefier rear triangle. It also climbs better. I have been riding it about 2-3 months now and about 400+ miles.
I still love the way it feels on every ride and have told my friends to buy one.

Strengths:    XO gruppo is awesome.
Confidence inspiring braking, although a little chattery during break in period.
Clean lines, not too much advertising on the frame.
Compliant and capable. Really fun to ride.
650B is easy to adjust to. No pedal toe interference on front wheel. Good roll over feeling.
Solid cornering, good acceleration, comfortable geometry, precise steering.
Natural feeling suspension soaks up bumps and swoops in and out of corners.

Weaknesses:    Top tube upward curve crowds the stand over height and catches the brake levers when the handlebars are fully turned. My top tube now has multiple scratches from this.
White Bros fork has slight sag when i pull up on the handlebars.
i spin out on fast descents with the stock 2x10 gear ratio.
Ritchey logos/tags are annoying
wish there were fender mounts on frame and fork
650B tire options are non existent in my LBS

Bottom Line:   
650B wheel size works just fine. the long travel suspension places me higher above the ground than i am used to, so i added an after market dropper seatpost to help lower my center of gravity on technical descents and increase my confidence.
i'm lovin' my new bike and have been motivated to ride almost every day. i will update this review after 6 months of use.
