Strengths:    Bike pops off of lips or over things very well. Linkage design works to enhance the ramp up characteristics of the rear shock making heavier landings feel like nothing.

Weaknesses:    Bearings wore out very quickly (and I live in a dry climate). Also not impressed with their warranty - 6 months on bearings and 1 year on the frame.

Bottom Line:   
Expensive bikes, but a unique ride. A little long for a free ride bike but some might really like this. Very stable at speed and in the air. A good all round bike for shuttle/resort riding.
