    Strengths:    Descends like a sled, turns like it's on rails, jumps well, very sturdy, adjustable geometry, rear shock (Fox DHX 3.0) was surprisingly comparable to the 5.0. Great balance and takes drops like butter. Love the X9 deraileur, particularly in short cage.

    Weaknesses:    A little heavy, not great for pedalling but comparable to my Demo 8 and Stab. Fork upgrade is good investment!

    Bottom Line:   
    I love this bike! The front shock is a bit lame but at $3200 I'm glad it was the only weak link! All the other components have been great. The frame is super sturdy and handles very stable. The steeper the terrain, the better it rides. I like the adjustable geometry too! I prefer middle hole for steep downhill and rear hole for freeride.
    Basically indestructible...

    Strengths:    rides amazing. jumps extremely well for a big bike. super stable at speeds. corners on rails due to the stiffness. all in all get this bike if you like to go fast and hit big jumps

    Weaknesses:    came with a marz 66 which has sucked from the start. decently heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    super sick bike. love the way it rides. made for high speeds and big airs. the suspension design is dialed, the geo is dialed. 4 value chilis for the stupid fork. 5 overall chilis for the sickness of the ride

    Strengths:    caries speed well, rail corners well. hugs the trail. the bike felt great from the first ride.

    Weaknesses:    weight 46 lbs, stock tires weak side walls, flatted easly. the bottom bracket is very low. I hit my pedals often on dippy flat sections of trails. I was pitched off once when I pedal stroked into a rock. not very good for pedaling up hill.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is my firts DH bike. I test rode allot of my friends DH bikes. I bought this bike for the purpose of trying racing. It did fit my budget. With most lighter DH bikes,
    money does factor into my choice. with the investment of a few thousand dollars I am sure I can bring the weight down.
    I did change the tires out to Maxxis supper tacky minions DH front and rears. But that unfortunatly added some weight. A few of my racer friends have tride the bike. they all complained about the weight, But loved the speed that the bike caries.

    Strengths:    Pedals great for weight and travel. Adjustable travel for the rear shock. Great components.

    Weaknesses:    Stock Weight

    Bottom Line:   
    Probably will be keeping it stock except for the tires. I'll be able to drop the weight down to the high 30's when i change the tires and tubes.
