Strengths:    Suspension...Geometery..Clearance due to the somewhat higher bottom bracket area...built like a tank. The suspension..Lyric up front and Fox in the rear. 20mm Axle, 1.5 headtube..the thing is stiff..

Weaknesses:    I should not even mention this as I am the one who bought the bike knowing the a little heavy but in my book it is a true All Mountain rig...still not sure about the Hayes far so good. So far the tires have been fine for me and my ridding conditions

Bottom Line:   
I picked this bike up on closeout...lifetime warranty on the frame..It is not my only bike and wanted a true All Mountain bike...I sold my Enduro to help pay for the upgrades on this thing...though the Enduro is an awesome bike I never got along with the geo of the bike very well and the way it felt..The Moto handles some serious actually climbs very just requires a different style of ridding when going up hill...slow and easy...going down..hold on and rail..I purchased this as I had always wanted to give a Cannondale a try...glad I did this has been one of the best bikes I have ever owned..I have the maxle set up so I have not noticed any flex or twitchy rear end at speed..
