Strengths:    
Fast, good handling, great suspension fork, comfortable.


Weaknesses:    
None yet


Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike. The disk brakes are awesome. They are smooth and progressive. The frame hooks up instantly on climbs and yet is as comfortable as possible on the downhills for a hardtail alumuminum bike. The main feature I like is the Headshock fork. It is great to be able to lock out the suspension while climbing and then dial it in on the fly while descending. Going over alligator bumps at speed felt smooth as a paved highway.
