Strengths:    Disk Brakes

Weaknesses:    Harsh Ride

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this bike for my wife (who absolutely loves it) after a long on-line search. If I would've ridden it first, I would've purchased something else, as it is not nearly as compliant as my Giant VT2 - in fact, after diddling around with the rear suspension, I would say that it only rides just slightly better than a hardtail (!).
Everything else is as-expected.
For a brand new bike with disk brakes and mountain bike styling, it's probably a good value, but it's not a great value.
