Strengths:    Simple, tried and true suspension design, swingarm pivot bearings are extremely long lasting, 1.5 head tube, big beefy frame without being heavy, full length seat tube, perfect amount of travel for the local trails (haven't had the opportunity to take it to whistler yet)

Weaknesses:    On climbs I constantly find myself wishing for a steeper seat tube angle as I find myself slipping off the seat and/or really struggling to efficiently put energy into motion. My frame is a large, but it feels more like a medium

Bottom Line:   
I like it for the simplicity of the ride. Right now it is a bit of a beef cake (39lbs), but there is potential to lighten it up. It can be ridden uphills but it'll take some effort.

Buy it: if you want something that will destroy the trails that you can still earn your turns on
Don't buy it: if you want the latest in suspension acronyms

Strengths:    great stability, fast on turns, climbs good, great angles.

Weaknesses:    non until now

Bottom Line:   
AWESOME freeride bikes, would not call them downhill bikes. climbs very good even compare to my heckler, goes down so stable and fast, even though that the cockpit is very short, but its make wanna jump of any small kicker, turning are fast and low, easy on the jumps, easy pull up.
It is a shame that thay will not be at 2011 and there is no real replacement for it - PURE fun bikes, that you can (almost) any aggressive all mountain ride with tham.

Morewood Zuza Build Comments?

Do you guys think this would be a decent build? I think I'll go this direction because it has a decent amount of travel, and it should pedal decently from what Ive read.
