    Strengths:    super sweet frame. Works just like every other four bar but is light and beefy. I find that it makes many top end freeride bikes look weak. Coolest of all is that it is now rare and hard to come by. If you find one buy it!

    Weaknesses:    the second owner of my frame was fat and put a small crack in it and the third owner sold the Avalanch that fit it.
    then again those were all people problems

    Bottom Line:   
    One of a kind and hard to come by. If you see one don't hesitate. Tons of fun and really light.

    Strengths:    lightweight for a full sus, strong well built frame , no flex, ajustable geometry, very chuckable and insperational.a real freeride bike.

    Weaknesses:    havent found one yet, altho the seat tower angle made it hard getting a seatpost with enough ajustment.

    Bottom Line:   
    great frame ,especially with the carbons fitted, you can chuck this bike around with ease on the trail and it is easy to peddle on the ups, great for all day freeriding and even DH , its a great pity Dirtworks are not making them anymore, i was lucky to get a frame that had never been built. and i had good advice from Mick at Dirtworksuk.com on how to build up the bike.
