Strengths:    - value for money! No other brand comes even close.
- very agile and responsive
- lightweight
- terralogic fork
- light but strong wheels
- impact crash protection system.


Weaknesses:    - I wish they would have routed all cables through the frame and not just the ones for shifting. Now the brake line is still under the lower tube, which is visually not so nice and also makes it more difficult to clean.
- Elixir brakes can be noisy when wet.
- Had to replace the lower head set bearing because it was rusty. Maybe my own mistake by spraying water directly on that area when cleaning the bike.


Bottom Line:   
My first 29er and I'm really loving it. Best value for money you will find. Maybe even the best 29er you will find. Light, responsive, agile. Everything you want from a hardtale race monster. I'm also loving the impact protection on the horizontal tube which prevents damage to the frame if you crash.
