Strengths: The frame is light and strong. Really stiff in the bottom bracket, but rides smooth. The top tube is a little long for my taste, but I have never cracked my kneecaps, so it's good. The light weight of the frame makes it real easy to make midair adjustments over jumps.
Weaknesses: The white pant looks great when it's new, but it's real easy to scratch and ding. once you do, it starts looking like crap quick.
I bought this as a frame/fork/stem kit, so I cannot comment on the component quality, but this is a good solid frame for a rider that just likes to get out and goof around. Maybe not for hardcore dirt or ramp jumping; I wouldn't be pulling 30 foot doubles on it regularly, but for semi-casual riding or amateur racing it will last you as long as you want to keep it.

Weaknesses: Wheels will die before the fame. Hards getting parts to fits at times. IE new fishbone stem had to be machined to fit frame. Front original forks had very tight drop outs!
