    Strengths:    Frame, fork, tires, shifters, rear derailer

    Weaknesses:    none really

    Bottom Line:   
    Mine is the 2011 with the head shock and not the lefty. Has X9 rear derailer, X7 shifters. Bike is 26lbs stock and feels awesome on the trail. I love this bike more than my Rush that I just sold.
