Strengths:    I've pushed this bike really bloody hard and despite a few negatives, it did really well and kept me happy. This tyres are great, and the frame is excellent. For the same price, other manufactures can only offer steel.

Weaknesses:    Rims aren't strong, even for light rider like myself, derailleurs, seat is too hard and the rear axle broke on me after only 6 months of reasonably easy riding.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great entry level bike thrashing others because of it's value for money, especially because it comes with an aluminium frame; Other brands would charge another hundred dollars for the upgrade from steal. If you are looking for something that is exciting, has durable components and is good for xc, than look elswhere at a more expensive bike.
