    Strengths:    light weight 4.9 lbs.great climber(like a goat)just enough travel to handle rough's a back saver on epics or if you played contact sports for 20 years.

    Weaknesses:    a bit slow on delivery(6 months).1 more inch of travel and i coulda been a contenda.

    Bottom Line:   
    i have been riding this bike for exactly 1 year.having a bad back was a big concern 4 me .this is just plush enough for me and tricking it down to 24.5 lbs certainly helps on long saddle days.i don't have the time to race but this bike inspires me each time i get on.i run a 22/32/44 front mated with an 11/34 rear and i climb easier and in more control than i ever did before.this bike tracks great on all terrain and makes you confident in or out of saddle.i recommend an air fork up front to go with the risse air rear.the single pivot operates smooth, no multi links means cheap maintenance.stiff rear w/buku tire clearance for mud.

    Strengths:    Super build
    Very stiff
    Light frame
    Risse rear shock

    Weaknesses:    I found the customer service somewhat slow.

    Bottom Line:   
    WOW! a review of the Starship -thought I better put my thoughts down too.
    This is one hell of a bike. It only has 3" of travel, but it is good quality travel that is usable. Blows away all other bikes i've ridden, and can out climb my HT too (zaskar le).
    Only gripe was how long it took to get from time of ordering.
    Get one if you can!
