    Strengths:    Low top tube, for a trail bike
    Geometry works
    Strong and stiff
    Well Engineered, well executed

    Weaknesses:    It is not light :)

    Bottom Line:   
    My set up is strange: a rigid, bomb proof, singlespeed trail bike.

    The bike is nimble around tight turns. Stability is still surprisingly good if I get to higher speeds. Going down some steepish spots, the slightly slack head angle inspires more confidence than my previous bike with steeper HA and 130mm fork. BB height is good for minimizing pedal strikes but still low enough for handling. Chain stays are short, which is great for getting the front of the bike up, over, and around things.

    The low top tube and short seat tube are great for us ... leg-length-challenged people.

    Obviously, the rigid fork I put on my bike requires some special attention on rough ground. But that is my choice.
