Strengths:    Frame, stock saddle

Weaknesses:    Crank is an out of series Shimano, leaves a bit to be desired but still a quality product.

Bottom Line:   
This being my first bike I can say that I'm extremely satisfied with its performance. It's taken all the beatings that are to be expected from a novice rider and has yet to fail me. Most trails in my area are pretty tame single track with the occasional technical section and the bike has dealt well with all of it. As is expected of a hard tail, it climbs incredibly well and can handle its own on moderately technical sections. The concept saddle, seat post, bars, and bar ends are very well made though the seat post is a PITA to adjust as it's a much tighter fit than previous bikes I've tried but all in all I'm happy with it.
Great first bike, amazing price for what I got (1100 for a nice hard tail with XT components).
