Strengths:    Strength, stability, adjustability......and the weight doesn't hurt going downhill as well.

Weaknesses:    Weight - but only if I've got to push it. Not an issue in the Alps.

Bottom Line:   
What a machine. Once you get it in the environment it was designed for (real dh's in the Alps or similar) it is fantastic. Plenty of trave, well controlled, stable and handles beautifully. Once the Shivers go on the front it'll be perfect.....

Strengths:    Rigidity, suspension works great (RockShox Super Deluxe is the best rear shock on earth!), almost every dimension can be changed

Weaknesses:    too heavy?????? - NOT IMPORTANT FOR DOWNHILL RACING!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
180mm of full adjustable travel, it can be easily adapted for almost every kind of trail, it has sealed bearings in every pivot (it has only one, :) ). Its weight can be a pain in the ass if you don't have anyone who carries you up. I'd like to have the original seat (motocross style), but it seems imposible to locate. I have a Tioga MultiControl DH and I think it's the best DH seat sofar
