Strengths:    -Very light (Now about 23lbs... whit a few components changes.)
-climbing monster.
-Nervous and precise.
-Solid frame
-Good stock parts

Weaknesses:    -Dicks
-dual brake/speed controls
-Lack of brakes a little... Really need to keep them clean...
-flat bar ( very bend foward ride...)

Bottom Line:   
Well this bike in my opinion offers the best price/quality I ever found.
The frame is very good. Stiff and light.
Suspension FOX 32 f-80rlc really does the work!
stocks components are good quality.
Best bike I ever ride so far.

This is a bike that you can easily upgrade in time.
I added a monkey lite XC low rise handlebar and changed the brakes control from lx to xt... I really get more stopping power now.

Overall Devinci makes great bikes and I really recommend them to anyone that want a resious but not too serious ride.

(stock before any upgrades...)
