Strengths:    Climbs better than the moto-lite
Decends better than any 6" bike
The Ti feels like it adds travel in the chatter.

Weaknesses:    4g but i feel that this bike frame will always be a contender and the ti should give it a very long carrer.

Bottom Line:   
I was orriginally going to get this as a bike that i could bomb downhill but still be able to grind to the top and then i could keep my moto-lite as my super fast cross country machine. Well i love my moto but i have to say there is no point in keeping it as my ti guapo does 95% of every thing better than my moto. Let me break it down.

Technical cimbing-the guapo holds a line better and keeps from wheelieing.
fire road climbing- same
switchback climbing- guapo see above
Feel - guapo its the ti and the more relaxed rider position
drops - Guapo
jumps - guapo
steep sections -guapo
off camber - guapo as long as its not in the 6" mode
easy to balance - guapo
holds speed - guapo
plush - guapo

its better to ask what does the moto-lite do better than the guapo. the only things i can think of are wheelie drops(thats because of the really short chain stays) and the moto is a hair lighter. (though it doesnt feel that way)

Strengths:    It does it all!!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This bike just does it all right,It climbs and decends Great. With the large over sized Titanium Tubes its stiff and should last a life time of hard riding. Not to mention it look's Great.
