Strengths:    Excellent components except seat and post!

Weaknesses:    The i seat post and seat combo. Repalce ASAP as it continually comes loose on rides.

Bottom Line:   
A good all round bike. Swapped out pedals and changing to riser bars makes a world of difference to ride and comfort and big up on the handling. All the components are trick so to speak. Juicy 7 brakes working in all conditions and a good handler in the forrest and nice climber on the hills.

However the i seat post and seat combo are a no go. The seat works it's way loose after every ride! Good XC bike and great racer.

Bike Setup:   XC distance riding. Lower seat for jumping. Changed to Time Atac Pedals :-) good for the mud. Changed to riser bars as the flats were no good to man or beast.
