Strengths:    Stable bike,great on descents,good climber.It's bit heavy 15+ kg but not so noticeable.

Weaknesses:    Bit heavy maybe...Original wheelset is bad and BB had to change.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great rig,i used it on long tours as xc bike and on DH with stronger wheelset.It is fast,good for mid jumps 2-4 meters and drops up to 2 meters. Very stable in corners.It is bit on shorter side however so i used longer stem on xc tours.
Chnaged wheelset after some time because i broke crossline rear and better brakes.

Strengths:    Light, capable framset with all the features you would want in a high end hardcore but long travel bike.

Weaknesses:    The falling rate design is well suited to airshocks, but I have not yet had an opportunity to test it with a coil. With a suitable "boost" arrangment I am sure that this would also be fine

Bottom Line:   
Great value, and good performance both up and downhill; bear in mind the caveats with regards to coil shock for Alpine duty though.

Strengths:    everything

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
The Vanish 160 is a do it all bike. I have rode this bike on XC trails, rugged Trails of Japan, and DH/Freeride Parks. This bike is flexable enough to do all these thing. So all you need is one bike to ride any trail. I is truly a do it all bike. I have never rode a bike this fun.
