Date Reviewed: April 20, 2008

Strengths:    LIGHT as hell, strong, no flex and..I must say.... super SEXY

Weaknesses:    none except pricing of course... but when you want the best, you pay for it!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
I was looking to save weight while retaining a similar durability/toughness in my previous Alu frame... could spare the money so I went with this baby and OMG was I ever amazed. This thing is just pure marvel. If you do long distance XC, or race, or very aggressive XC like me...look no further!!! Obviously the price which is roughly 2000$ is a real obstacle to ownership.. but if you can spare the gold, don't even hesitate, it's worth every penny!!! The welds on this thing are pure genius craftmanship... I'm blown away
