Strengths:    Tuff bike, 4 crashes and no damage

Weaknesses:    Needs a bit wider bar and a bit shorter stem as super low speed handling takes a bit too
much bar work.
Not really worth changing but I will do it this summer.

Bottom Line:   
My second season on the bike and the Sun Tour fork is holding up just fine.
I made it a 1X9, I kept the 32 tooth chain ring and got a 12X36 cassette plus the 'Paul' chain keeper
I was using about 6 gears when I had 27,,I still use about 6 and not having the bail out 22 tooth
chain ring makes me a smarter rider.
The wet brakes are a must have for me because I ride in the wet stuff now and then
