Strengths:    Great climber, ADS is neat and tidy, Geometry is spot on.

Weaknesses:    The fact theyve discontinued it for the AKA.

Bottom Line:   
THE best hardtail ive owned by far, wouldnt trade it for the world.

Climbs really well, descends like a dr jekyll, super stiff, super planted feel, great for all kinds of trails. ADS is great although it would have been nice if theyd have made a 12mm version but with a solid axle its damn good. running dual ring really suits the bike. Geometry is spot on, you always feel like your in the right place at the right time and ready to tackle any obsticle

Just cant believe theyve axed it, although it has been running a very long time i think Identiti have left themselves a big gap in their range regardless of how good the AKA is.

Green colour is also pretty cool as its not a proper british racing green, very very dark and looks black in most light. get it in the sun and you can see the green but again in some light mine is most definatly purple.

If youve been thinking of getting one get it now before its too late.
