Strengths:    This bike is light, fast and tough as nails! I love it! The SRAM shifters are smooth and flawless in all 30 gears. The Avid Hydraulic brakes along with 180mm discs have plenty of stopping power and the 29" WTB tires and rims on Gravity hubs just want to roll over everything! All that and locking Rock Shox front suspension too!!! I am very happy with my purchase!

Weaknesses:    Weaknesses? What weaknesses?

Bottom Line:   
Over all I am absolutely, positively, beyond all my expectations, blown away by this bike. If someone would have told me how much of a difference this bike would make over the $100.00 bike I was on before my purchase, I would not have believed them. It's light and fast. It goes up any hill as easily as riding on flat ground. It stops without failure and I never miss a gear.
