Strengths:    This bike is RIDICULOUS! It's tough, nimble, super well balanced, and inspiring. Well made, frame with great welds, and super stout construction. Don't forget the Concentralink pivot location!!!

Weaknesses:    Not necessarily a climber but depending on the "engine" even this bike can hold its own.

Bottom Line:   
I believe it was originally designed as a dual-slalom rig but this bike does it all. Fearless descender, agile in the single track, very efficiencient pedaler. The Tioga Factory DH rear tire on mine makes its kind of a pig, but a lighter tire fixes that.

I'd recommend this bike for any serious mtn. biker, north shore style freerider, dirt-jumper, urban assalter, or hard core commuter.
Remember ride at your own risk! and Go big or go home!
