Strengths:    Light weight, excellent geometry, 110 mm of smooth travel with the lefty. Good wheel set. Smooth welds, and polished frame.

Weaknesses:    Fire-X crankset

Bottom Line:   
Over 3 months this bike has been ridden a lot, and raced as well. It is extremely responsive, and has a light lively feel. Everything I was looking for in a 26" hardtail. It really shines in the tight turns and uphills. Overall it is a very quick and responsive bike, and seat is even comfortable! This is my best bike yet, and suggest anyone who is considering a 26" hardtail to get one.
