Strengths:    Strong as hell, you ain't gonna break this baby. price, looks, angles, sprinting, corners.

Weaknesses:    stickers, they come off, which was a bit crap.

Bottom Line:   
good frame, as long as you don't get it with the bad identiti stickers on it, get some good ones. it can be used as a good responsive trail bike with 3 rings, or a super-fast duel/bsx racer, and a brilliant jump hardnut hardtail, whatever you are up for. so i'd get one again if i had the choice, but just not with the crappy stickers on it.

Bottom Line:   

This frame rules in every way - it's tight, responds well to rider imput, and is just SO controllable. The geometry is excellent and it looks godly, tricks are really easy and it handles being thrown around in the air well too. It feels odd at first, because its so different to anything I've riden before, but once you get used to it you'll love it. It's light but not so much as to be scary - this frame is bombproof with huge gussets and chunky welds. Everyone who's riden it says the same as me - it rules. Some interesting shapes of tubes, but that just adds to its coolness.
