Strengths:    light weight, stiff, accepts v or disc brakes

Weaknesses:    nothing serious, decals coming off

Bottom Line:   
Definitely a XC bike, the 15 inch frame geometry is perfect for my size. Handles good on corners, makes climbing an ease and just love the way it rides. I don't know if they still sell this frame, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone that does'nt do 5 foot drops.

Strengths:    Low center of gravity makes it feel stable and reduces wind resistance. Light and doesn't feel to harsh. Good frame alignment.

Weaknesses:    Cranks and pedals frequently bottom out when cornering due to low bottom bracket height. I recommend considering a rock ring with this bike. Paint is flat black, I tore off all the Mangoat decals.

Bottom Line:   
Good frame for the money.
