    Strengths:    Awesome lightweight frame, great geometry, snappy climber. All round fantastic cross country recreational / race bike.

    Weaknesses:    Magura Clara brakes need frequent adjustment

    Bottom Line:   
    I cannot speak highly enough of this bike - it simply rocks. Ironically I have just taken the parts off it for swapping onto a Giant NRS-2 frame which I have picked up cheap (unused). Going with the dually for a while due to the hardpacked rocky conditions here in Sydney.

    If you ride on anything other than rocky technical downhills, the Team Racing is simply the best - a friend and I both moved to performance hardtails after several years on duallies, and raved about them day after day after day!! Apart from the Clara's (which are actually pretty good - just need a little more maintenance than I'd like) this bike is perfect!!

    Strengths:    VERY stiff frame that handles more than well, gotta love it! O.K brakes and nice working XT-gears.

    Weaknesses:    Poor LX-gears in the front, not very grippy rear tire and front tire sucks when riding on the road or in the cities. OEM spd-pedals are also pure crap, but then again, I think all spd-pedals are crap when it comes to XC/Freeriding. Also, the Judy SL-suspension isn't quite would it should be and needs stiffer springs.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is alot of bike for the low price and after have switched to a riser-bar and changed the rather poor scott-stem to a piece of World Force CNC-machined stem the handling of the bike is truly a piece of art!! Altough, the front-suspension kind of sucks and needs lighter oil och stiffer springs. The seat is kind of hard if you go for long rides but in the short trails it's great! But don't make any mistakes my friends, cause if you hit this saddle wrong it WILL brake your balls... =) But to round it up: The brakes and the suspension needs alot of tuning before they do their best. The handlebar really needs to be changed to a riserbar. The frame is truly a piece of art but the OEM scott-stem is truly a piece of sh*t! Anyway, BYE THE BIKE - I did and I can't stop riding it...!

    Strengths:    The frame is stiff and looks really cool (red, blue & silver).
    Shimano XT component group works just great.
    Rock Shox Judy Race front shock and Magura Louise brakes give fantastic performance.

    Weaknesses:    IRC Mythos XC tires, Mavic X223 rims, Scott Racing stem.

    Bottom Line:   
    This bike works great after 300km when you have discovered the problems with the OEM setup and let them reapaired in the LBS.
    Well, my bike's first problem was the IRC Mythos XC front tire (Made In Taiwan), which I had to send back because it was faulty. So I had to ride with my tarmac slicks (they are REALLY slick) for a week.
    The second problem was the Scott Racing stem which made very ugly sound every time when I pushed the peadals hard. I put a piece of cloth bethween the stem and the handlebar. That ofcourse is a temporary solution.
    And the third main problem was Mavic X223 rear rim, which hadn't only a runout, but was also egg-shaped.
    But enough of the bad things. As said before, despite those problems the bike is just great. I had a rigid bike before the Scott TRL and my hands did really hurt after 3 hours of hardcore riding. With Judy Race this problem is solved. Oh, and the brakes ... they are just killers ... have to be very careful with them. And the saddle is just like made for me. I suppose these people who complain about it shouldn't ride a hardtail but a softtail. And it is so nice to see people looking at the fantastic color scheme of the bike.
    So, I'm impressed and give five for both the value and the overall rating, because solving the problems took very little time compared to the riding pleasure.

    Strengths:    Excellent value for money. Groupset is a combination of LX & XT with Magura Clara disc brakes. The frame is very light, strong and eyecatching.

    Weaknesses:    Uncomfortable saddle.
    Racer bars, recommend upgrading to Risers, Easton Monkeybars work very well for me.
    IRC Mythos tyres very poor, upgraded to Panaracer Fire XC Pro 2.1in.

    Bottom Line:   
    An excellent bike for the money. Can be raced straight out of the box.
    Comfortable all day ride if wearing cycling shorts.
    With the upgrades I have made the bikes performance is in my mind, unbeatable at the same price range.

    Strengths:    good frame, excellent standard spec of components (XT, etc.), rides well. Judy Shock is pretty good straight out of the box and after wearing in is excellent. Magura Louise brakes have worked very well so far but dealer spent a long time setting them up.

    Weaknesses:    grips are a bit harsh, plastic ties on brake cables are placed out from the frame and can cut you on the leg if you fall or ride close to the upper bar, seat is very hard
    Disc brakes prone to squeal

    Bottom Line:   
    fun to ride, excellent standard spec on components with little need for any component changes, except the seat, if that had been good, it would have got 5 chillies. If the reviews on the Magura Louise brakes I've seen at this site hold true, then I may opt to change for a Hope XC4 system.

    This is an outstanding bike for the XC rider who wants a good quality bike for a decent price.
