Strengths:    Lightweight, fast and comfortable. Oh boy I cant believe how comfortable I thought all the talk about carbon 29ers removing trail buzz was just that talk. Its not it really does smooth things out.

Weaknesses:    Rear brake hose runs down middle of down tube and looks very vulnerable to rock strikes. low bottom bracket takes a bit of getting used to.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a bike to cover mile after mile then this is for you It climbs like a mountain goat on steroids but if the trail heads downhill and gets rough this bike can still handle things. Awesome value I totalled up the spec list and I reckon I got myself a free frame. I have been a long time F/S user but got bored with the constant maintenance and wanted something really light that climbed and rolled really fast. If you fancy dipping a toe in the carbon 29er pool this is a great bike for you.
