    Strengths:    The it factor , just feels right . Good geometry , frame design puts your weight where its is supposed to be . The bottom end acceleration from a stop is great , Breaks are very good

    Weaknesses:    I have not found any yet , would have preferred a single gear up front , a shorter stem "personal fitment " , and maybe better tires , but these are all easy upgrades

    Bottom Line:   
    Great bike for the money . Im 160 and 5 8 , bought a medium 17" , I was weight forward with the stock 90 mm stem an seat neutral position . I changed the seat to the rear and bought a 60 mm stem fitment is now tuned to me , bike is "flickable" , turns well , stable , and absorbs log overs and roots very well

    Strengths:    This bike does everything well. It's very stable in the turns, climbs like a goat, outstanding descender.

    Weaknesses:    NONE

    Bottom Line:   
    This bike is outstading for the price. This bike can do just about everything. I use it for trail riding mostly and it does not dissapoint one bit when I use it for downhill. The suspension is great and has surpassed my expectations. It feels very plush on the descents and does not move much on the climbs. There is nothing bad I can say bout this bike. If you want a do it all bike, I definitely would recomend this bike for sure.
