Strengths:    Very stiff and responsive frame
Light for what it does
Virtual pivot point rear suspension works well, feels like more travel than it is
Very good equipment

Weaknesses:    None really, but if you're picky:
- Cannot mount bottle rack
- Rear shock is exposed to dirt from rear wheel. I made a small crudcatcher from flexible plastic, fixed it with cable binders (the plastic self closing things), problem is solved.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent bike. I'm very happy with it. It pedals like a hardtail but sucks up irregular terrain as if one were ironing it flat.
I got it a bit cheaper than the regular price...

Strengths:    Pedals very well, stout frame, good handing, takes abuse well

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Great All-Mtn. or light freeride bike. It can pedal up and rip it on the way down. Great handling whether the bike is on the ground or in the air. Can take jumps and drops very well. Suspension is active and predictable. Tough, stiff frame. It can climb technical terrain as well as it can descend.

Strengths:    Very stiff frame
Very good damping back, fast responding
It can take a beating

Weaknesses:    no bottleholder

Bottom Line:   
Very good bike, it is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Had some nasty falls but the bike takes it without any problems. It is very stiff, had a few fast downhils over 90kmh on rough terrain, but no sign of unsteadyness. Unbelievable.
It is a little heavy at the back due to the Rohloff Hub, but it is worth it.
3000 km without any problems.
