Strengths:    Titanium frame,springy light feel, climbing beast!

Weaknesses:    front to flexy with ti spokes and old floppy fork that is on the bike, front end sometimes a little unpredictable. new wheel and fork should fix this problem

Bottom Line:   
LIGHT MAKES RIGHT! having owned/ridden all kind of alu hardtails and dual suspension setups, I sold all them, I will never get rid of this bike! Custom build sandvik ti frame these bikes were only offered to diamond back team members, I bought mine from a sponsored rider that was switching to Redline. I LOVE THIS BIKE! I have owned mine for ten plus years now and cannot say enough good about a titanium hardtail! It is in need of some new components these days, like a new fork, and I will probably update to XTR or SRAM XX 2x10 setup to get the weight down even more try and break the 20 lb. mark, she currently sits at 21 lbs. If you want the best ride in a hardtail only carbon can even hold a candle to ti, and carbon doesn't have the springy, lively feel that ti does. Get one if you can!
