Strengths:    Predictable handling, nice looking, fairly light for price point

Weaknesses:    2 cracked frames in less than 14 months, I ride technical xc and cracked it, so if you ride AM trails a lot I would stay away from this frame.

Bottom Line:   
Fun bike, predictable handling, good components for the price.
I've really enjoyed this bike even though I've been cracking them, first one was at seat post tube/seatstays junction and behind bottom bracket, second was again at the seat tube/ top tube. However I'm a big guy at 6'4" 220#s so my expierence with the frames may not be an issue for others.
