Strengths:    Fast, light, X9 parts have been bomb proof and always work well.
Rims have held up very well despite limited online info for "29er mustang rims".
2x10 works well with the bike
Color scheme is sexy


Weaknesses:    Fork - CTD (I'm missing the complete lockout from my other bike) and no remote = sketchy DH if you forget to change from C to D. Don't bother reaching to flip the switch on the fly. You will FAIL and fall! Maybe....
Seat - a 2-3 hour max ride time for me; have switched over to my old fizik nisene and has made a huge difference.
Brakes get HOT!


Bottom Line:   
All around, a great bike, and a lot of fun to get back on a hardtail. The 29 wheels make it a lot less abusive for your back and legs (ie -your suspension system). It feels fast, and I have no trouble keeping up with my xc racer friends on FS bikes , until the DH gets really technical...but I bet I have more fun.
The frame has been through some seriously hard terrain (5 hour fast XC rides through the heart of kananaskis country) with no issues at all.
I'll be converting everything to tubeless soon, for a little more plushness.
If you want to be on a carbon hardtail, and can't afford the really nice rigs (ie Santa Cruz Highball), this is a great bike with components that are decent enough to work well almost all of the time.
