Strengths:    I really cannot say enough good things about this bike. This bike is fast. It corners great, floats over rough terrain, and can take some serious abuse. This bike is also probably the most quiet bike I have ever ridden downhill. The engineers really did amazing work on this frame. It is also super unique looking with the hydrofoarmed top tube. It also has a nice low stand over that makes for a totally controllable ride. This bike was designed by Doug Bradbury of Manitou-suspension and developed with Johnny Tomac himself. It really shows through with the bikes amazing performance.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
-Designed and developed by Doug Bradbury and the man, Johnny Tomac
-Low stand over that makes for a controllable ride
-Great over all performance
-Buy this bike. Seriously. You will not regret it.
