Strengths:    Excellent value for money, stiff frame but also very compliant on rough surfaces. Probably the best value for money 29er hard tail on the market. 10kg for XL bike. Race bike but comfortable. Through axles on front and rear.

Weaknesses:    Comes with non tubeless tyres even though the rims are tubeless - couldn't get the Kenda's to seal with Stan's. Grips are too small and hard, replaced with ODI.

Bottom Line:   
I was looking at a Santa Cruz Highball as I love SC bikes, but I couldn't go past the value of this bike. If you are looking for a race bike or even a do everything bike (if you don't have to hit massive jumps) then this will do the job. Nothing to regret. Very fast bike.
