Strengths:    Well built,agile,stiff,looks good,drivetrain and fork for the price

Weaknesses:    OEM saddle is uncomfortable,poor rubber and wheelset

Bottom Line:   
Generally very pleased with overall performance.Upgrades made it a capable XC bike.Not suitable for trail or rock garden technical routes(short headtube,wheelbase,ground clearance).Excellent climber,can go really fast on flat forest gravel roads.Fork works flawlessly,maybe on the heavy side,would swap for something lighter without coil.

Strengths:    Very good built quality. Amazing control n he air and in high speed. Very good energy transfer to the back wheel especially in steep hills.

Weaknesses:    Extreme Racing Geometry does not allow for relaxed cruising. Brakes are too weak for the staff that this terrain killer can do.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing control on he air and in high speed. Very well balanced and light. Very good energy transfer to the back wheel especially in comparison to my previous bike (GT). Very good for cross country and freestyle although it tends more to freestyle than anything else. The geometry that is not either one or another sometimes especially for commuting can make it a bit uncomfortable takes time to get used to it. But when comes to hitting the hills one can see big difference on the overall behavior comparing to rivals (Scot) of the same price and in time. You will need good technique skills to master its potential.

What is really amazing is the energy transfer, toughness and "going airborne handling" but I would not recommend it as beginner or every day bike.
