Strengths:    it is a super beafy frame that will never break, and it looks sweet with the flat finish. the oversized headtube and large tubing really sets the frame apart from most other bikes and allows for it to be that much stronger and versitile.

Weaknesses:    none at all

Bottom Line:   
this bike is bombproof, i personally only bought the frame and built it up and it is awsome. it is extremely strong and great geometry. It is extremely fun to just ride but really shines dirt jumping or 4x.

Strengths:    amazing frame. super beefy, huge solid yokes and dropouts. this frame is invincible. and it has a 1.5 steerer :D

Weaknesses:    lack of horizontal drop outs.... so now ill need to use a tensioner when i convert to ss.

Bottom Line:   
one of the strongest frames ive ever tried, awesome geo, spins very well, hasn't broken on me yet, its an awesome frame for park and djs, and even some trails. i recommend it to any one looks for a bullet proofs hard tail frame.
