Strengths:    this bike is strong. way too strong. soo strong when i sent a pack of wild rabid monkey too destroy it they all came back with castst and slings. well maybe that didn't exactly happen. but i did have monkeys. but seriously this frame is strong enough to go through parked cars elephants and small countries in a wink.
its bullet, bomb and nuke proof.


Weaknesses:    it's heavy and i mean heavy. this is not a bike for some f...ing weight weener. if you looking for an xc bike look somewere else. but if your looking for a bike thats as fast as a freight train and nimble as a mountain goat get this bike. also the paint (lime green) isn't my favorite

Bottom Line:   
this bike is the chits, its awsome. when gouing down hills its like a freightrain glued to the line like its on rails. handles harcore freriding on sik flat landings. great four bar linkage (specialized horstlink). i love this bike. we tried dating for a while but it didn't work out (it put out too much) if you know what i mean!!!

Strengths:    Stronger then my moms deoderant, taste good too. There is a certain good feeling you get when riding a frame, that you don't need to worry about it breaking when you drop 8 ft onto pavement in Montreal. Works great in the woods too, but abit heavy, but thats what you get for a DH bike.

Weaknesses:    Shock mounts that has too many useless positions that could in the future break your shock if you don't whatch out.

Bottom Line:   
If you need a rip off of an M-1 Intense frame that 's half the price but probably just as strong(mabye even more so). Alittle heavy but who cares it's a DH frame, not a piece of XC crap. Offence meant, to all of the weight concious freaks who polluted the sport with breakable, utralight purple, stuff. Anyways, it's a great bike for the money, and for the Americians who wish to ride like Canadians should purchase such a crude, but rather overbuilt frame. This is a strong, forgiving frame with lots of travel options; race it, use it in the city to jump parked cars, use it in the woods, but for god's sake get out and ride.Warning to all those who ride a multi-pivot frame like this one, oil thoose pivots, bearings,or whatever you have, frequently.

Strengths:    BEEFY, STRONG, GOOD ANGLES

Weaknesses:    FUKKIN HEAVY

Bottom Line:   
UNEXPENSIVE, BEEFY, STRONG BUT VERY VERY HEAVY. IT CAN PLOW THROUGH ANYTHING AND IT HAS AMAZING ANGLES. ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES ABOUT THIS BIKE IS THE MULTI-ANGLE SUSPENSION SETUPS AT THE REAR END, THEY HAVE MULTIPLE WAYS OF POSITIONING THE REAR SHOCK AND ONLY ONE OF THESE POSITIONS IS A GOOD ONE, ALL THE OTHER POSITIONS WILL CREATE STRESS ON THE SHOCK AND BRAKE IT, I BBROKE 4 SHOCKS THIS SEASON TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS THE GOOD POSITION FOR THE SHOCK. TRY POSITIONING THE SHOCK AS HORIZONTAL AS POSSIBLE.
