Strengths:    light, super stiff, well balanced bike that just feels right

Weaknesses:    As nice as the paint job is, it tends to chip easy.

Bottom Line:   
I got this frame late in the year last year so I only had a chance to race it a couple of times. From that I can say the bike has a good balanced feel. I find the handling to be less twitchy than my Jamis Dragon or the Turner. It feels alot like my Brodie Sauce which I regrettably sold a few years ago. I think this will be my main race day bike for this upcoming season.

This is a good solid, stiff aluminum frame. A good choice if you are looking for a cross country race bike that is comfortable enough for an all day epic or a weekend trail ride.
