Strengths: I dunno, it seems pretty durable. looks sweet, wheight isn't bad.
Weaknesses: weight, compared to competitors there is no competition (Kona Bass/Cowan DS, Transition double, Yeti 4X, Foes, FX bike ect.) and the rear shock.
It is a good freeride/slopestyle bike if you have it set up right, and is also amazing for big dj's. it is a little on the heavey side, but after riding it for a while you get used to it. overall, it is a very good bike.

i really like the frame. pretty cheap, just need to change the rear shock asap and go for a rip. depends on what you put on it, it can handle many different types of riding with ease and treats you very well

it's hard for me to justify a price for this bike because it was free, and I got id dressed to the nines... but this bike is sick. I would pay 2500 for a new one if it got stolen. A great light weight med travel dh bike free ride bike. super solid and smooth
