Strengths:    solid frame, very solid, just the right geometry, low center of gravity and very lightweight relative to its strength, totally adjustable rear shock and all the pro features

Weaknesses:    totally adjustable rear shock
rear noise may need nice work w/ spare tubes over the stays


Bottom Line:   
one of the top toys for an expert rider & too much of a bike may not be as good for non-enthusiasts

Date Reviewed: April 7, 2010

Strengths:    The design is cool, lightweight and stiff frame, easy to enter the corner and jumps, no brake jack (thanks to rear floating brake), curnutt air shock is also works well to eliminate pedal bob but still give us the plush feeling

Weaknesses:    I try to reduce noise from the backside (chainslap ?) but didn't work well, sometimes curnutt air shock feel to hard when landing from the jumps (already tune the firm and air compression so many configurations)

Bottom Line:   
nice bike for downhill, easy to jump, light enough for DH bike (only 4,4kgframe S size), you wouldn't regret to have this bike.
