Strengths:    great frame really strong, ligth ecxept for the fork

Weaknesses:    RIMS RIMS RIMS, i had it for about 3 months and i bent the front one so bad it had to be replaced and the rear one got a big ding in it fropms some small cross-country stuff didnt even get air to do that one.

Bottom Line:   
it's a really good bike well its the best i ever ridden. if your not into that big drops and stuff its awesome. it'll take anything u throw at it if you get the rims changed before heading to the mountain.

Strengths:    Very strong frame which does well downhill and also jumps good. The Zokes forks are a bit heavy but work quite well considering that this is one cheap bike for the money, The same can be said for the frame.

Weaknesses:    If you are used to jumpy hardtails like Kona Chute or DMR Trailstar then you will have to change your riding style a bit, as I found it a bit hard to get off the ground at first.Once you get used to it it's quite good.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good starter bike, ride it for a year, and then whack on all new drivetrain and groupsets, rims etc. I have had mine for over six months and have given it a good flogging. The only thing I have replaced are the forks (not because the Zokes broke or anything like that)for my old Marzocchi XC's which are lighter than the Zokes. Also the tyres are not great, unless you are into muddy stuff.
