Strengths:    Light, carbon fibre, very fast, smooth, control, looks sick.

Weaknesses:    Shimano XT drive train, rough, noisey. Rockshox sid team lockout no so lockout, may need adjusting.

Bottom Line:   
Fine cycle, definitely buy one if looking for an MTB and considering the Fuji, though I was lucky with the internet deal I received. I ride a road bike so riding this for the first time was like driving a tractor, yet in the scrub it is pure delight. Cant wait for some serious down hill water bars.

Strengths:    Great component spec (they didn't cut corners), light weight (23 pounds), super stiff, responsive, great power transfer

Weaknesses:    Rigidity can be harsh on rough terrain, stock grips are not comfortable (obviously no big deal),

Bottom Line:   
This is a great light weight racing hard tail XC bike right out of the box. Literally, all I did to get it race ready was swapped the seatpost out and poured some tire sealant into the tubeless tires and it was ready to go.

The SLM excels on buffed out single track and at climbing. I take it on some rough trails, but I suffer behind the guys with full suspension. Then I catch them and drop them on the long climbs.

If you regularly ride super harsh trails, you may want to consider something more forgiving (steel). The carbon hardtail has almost no bump dampening; every hit goes straight to the saddle.

As a race bike, I have no regrets in buying this. And as for bling factor, I have had a number of complements on this bike at races and on rides.

Similar Products Used:   Mostly full suspension XC or all mountain rigs. But I have been racing road and cross longer than mtb.

Bike Setup:   Stock, but I swapped out the seatpost for a longer Thompson seatpost since I needed literally 1 cm more than the stock one provided
