Strengths:    DESTROYS rear shock stiction. heavy duty, tracks well. Nimble but not twitchy at low speeds. can take anything (no pinch flats yet and i go off 6-10' jumps.) Brakes kick ass (saved my life multiple times.) Almost effortless shifting.

Weaknesses:    hard to maintenance lower bracket b/c it's so crowded. front shock takes a while to reduce travel for hills. Not all that customizable but i don't really care. the brakes get a little noisy and shaky when they get dusty but that just means i'm making them work.

Bottom Line:   
similar bikes like pivot mach 5's cost around 7k. This bike cost me $2500 and it looks like it should cost 3 times as much! if you have the money I would recommend getting this bike. I only got this bike a month or so ago but i have ridden it for about 10-20 hours in my local river valley. so far everything is great aside from the idiots at the shop setting my rear shock sag too low. make sure to add 10-20 more psi than it calls for cause some of it escapes when u take the hose off.

This is a seriously well made machine, excellent performance for the price, and I'de say it's top in in it's category, taking in account value for your money. All around great toy!!
