Strengths:    Stiff, Stealth, and Rocky Mountain quality...

Weaknesses:    Tall seat tube measurement for a large.

Bottom Line:   
I owned a 2001 RM7, The leap in technology from that bike to this one is amazing. The same travel, with better standover and a much more solid rear end. The 66 rc2x works great. The whole bike is like a mini DH ripper that jibs off anything. The S3 complete would've been a much better deal, but I had a lot of the parts anyway. This is the best evolution of the Switch yet.

Strengths:    Frame is flawless, nice details, strong, powder coating is resistant to scratches

Weaknesses:    Heavy but it's a HC freeride bike

Bottom Line:   
This bike can do everything. I lower the fork for steep uphills, rev the propedal on DHX 5.0 and it climbs surprisigly well. Down hill is one plush, bottomles ride. No flex just solid feeling. I use XLs/Fat Albert/Big Betty for epic rides to save some weight.
