Strengths:    Awesome of everything, VERY light, comfortable for longer XC runs, very manoueverable

Weaknesses:    Fox Talas RC2's have a wierd issue of not locking out and alot of difficulty taking air in with a fork pump (valve issue)...fork is awesome for freeride and best shore riding....Crossmax SX rims use a presta valve, so I drilled them out for a shraeder valve (the only solution since I can't find the person that designed the presta valve to shoot)...drilling out a $900 rim take a bit of courage at first

Bottom Line:   
Awesome bike for all mountain riding. I've riden a few all mountain bikes but the SE tops all of them with stock components and being a few pounds lighter then every other all mountain bike. The Crossmax SX rims sketched me out at first being so expensive and light, but are crazy strong and holds up to harsh downhill tracks with technical rock far....The DHX 5.0 needed to gain my trust at first being an air shock for downhill racing, but once you have it dialed in, you will love it. I'm sold on the DHX 5. The Talas RC2 is a very plush fork, very solid if you have it set up to be. Dial the high and low comp and you have a fork that you can freeride or downhill but so light that it works great for XC. The XO derailler and XTR drivetrain shifts flawlessly everytime, takes a beating on rocks and still is amazing. Bottom line = the Six SE has amazing adjustability in just about every aspect you can think of, and if you can dial in all these adjustments, the bike is beyond words. Buy this bike if you prefer to freeride on shore trails, love to downhill when your not freeriding and like to go for the casual XC ride every so often. This bike can do it all and until you try it yourself, this bike is just another all mountain bike.

Strengths:    quality shock and forks

Weaknesses:    Takes some time to get the suspension working correctly

Bottom Line:   
A quality bike, maybe a bit biased towards heavier, slightly taller people.

A strong frame with the ultimate components but make sure you take your time with the setup.
