Strengths:    Handling turns, Fast, very responsive, Great Climber, and shifts extremely smooth

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
Well, I have not ridden since around 2000 or 2001. All I did were trails in the past and the best bike at the time I could only afford a $250-$300 bike from Academy. With that being said, this was a dramatic change and definitely for the best. What made the deal even sweeter was my LBS had these babies on sale for $1249.99 and retail was originally at $1895.99 . I am very impressed with the 29er as this machine climbs so well. Climbs and drops that I would of never been able to do before are now easily taken care. Shifts on the fly smoothly and accurately when begining the climb and again during the climb if needed. Rolls over easily all the roots and rocks that I have came across on the trails. I am so glad I bought this bike
