Strengths: Overall good components : - LX/XT - judy sl - fox float r - Avid brakes are very powerful . - Disc brake mounts Everything works nicely together .
Weaknesses: - Bit heavy at 29 lbs - Frame a bit too big for a small - Rear end screams when breaking at 20+ mph - Ritchey stem and seatpost are very heavy
At the price it's pretty nice so long as you don't mind the weight . The first time I went uphill it was a pretty painful experience , but you do get used to it ... eventually . Other than that I like it and would recommend it .
