Strengths:    Tough frame and parts, hussefelt cranks, 20mm axles, hayes discs, psylo, etc. The stock parts will hold up to whatever you wanna do. Adjustable fox rear shock is nice too.

Weaknesses:    Well obviously this thing is gonne be heavy but i expected that much. Its stability and strength more thna make up for it. If you ve got legs youll be able to keep up with the Xc dudes and blow past em on the descent.

Bottom Line:   
Still after 3 years one of the best deals on a, dare i say, freeride bike. If your only into tons of miles and not really intereste din drops, jumps and stunts then check out the hollowpoint. If you are then this is it. The components will last and nothin needs replacing right away, unless the tires if your on the east coast. See you local dealer, and try it out, see for yourself, and i bet youll wanna ride it home. Very fun, insiring and lust-worthy bike. go get one

Strengths:    Beefy frame, nice rear suspension design, strong, inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    A tad heavy, rear end is a little flexy (not bad though), average to below average component selection.

Bottom Line:   
Excellent bang for the buck. You get a very nice frame and suspension design with disc brakes and Sun Rhino Light Rims. The rest of the components are lower quality, but as they wear, you just upgrade to better stuff. Then you have a sweet stead. I immediately replaced the XVert fork with a Bomber Z1QR. It rides great.

Strengths:    Tremendous looks, beefy frame, powerful Hayes Disk brakes, extremely comfortable riding position, great, great value!

Weaknesses:    Probably rear shock...feels a little bouncy...I'll let you know when I take it downhilling this weekend at Gore and Platekill Mountain.

Bottom Line:   
Without a doubt, the best bang for the buck on the market...where else can you get a bike with Hayes Hydro brakes, XT components, great wheels, awesome suspension for a grand. Please...I feel like this was a gift to me. Oh, did I mention this thing looks awesome and is a blast to ride? Hey, it's all true. At least 5 hot flamin' chillies for this puppy. Ride on.....!!!!!!

Strengths:    Great frame, disc brakes, nice plush travel

Weaknesses:    Cables rub against frame and remove paint. A bit heavy

Bottom Line:   
For $1,500.00 ya can't go wrong. It's plush, fun as hell to ride and my confidence level has increased 100%. I was a die-hard XC rider that thought FS was a complete waste of time and energy... my hardtail's collecting dust... this thing is just waaaayyyyy too much fun!!
