Strengths:    good looking, well made frame. Mine is green with the ball burnished rear.

Weaknesses:    not in production as far as I know...

Bottom Line:   
Nice frame, I really like it. Great geometry for tight, twisty trails and stable at speed too. Rides just like a single pivot rear should. Good looking with the ball burnished rear. Only thing negative to mention is that it is a little flexy at the pivot compared to something like a mac strut but even then- less tracking issues than with the 29er front wheel. (disclaimer here; I run about 250lbs.- normal sized humans may not notice this at all...)

If anyone out there knows of another I'd love to hear from them. I hope this thing wasn't a one-off!
