Strengths: price, fox shock, 29 inch wheels, and fit to my body and style of riding. surprised to find the fox shock on this price point. brakes and gears well matched to frame.....just a real nice fit overall.
Weaknesses: seat perhaps also maybe the heavy wheels.....but since I ride beach sand dune trails with roots and rocks I find the GEAX tire set up rox!
riding amelia and talbot islands mainly....this bike is sold and serviced by the local guy Joel at Fernandina Beach Cycle and fitness downtown. They have great prices and service!! **sold bike to me on sale for 1400...;)
the bike is a perfect fit for someone riding off rode florida... bike eats beaches, trails, dunes, or old rail beds like a hungry dog inhaling table scraps!
