Strengths:    Very light frame, no flex at all. Excellent bike..

Weaknesses:    None so far !

Bottom Line:   
Excellent bike, I can climb faster on this bike. Perfect !!The frame weight is around 1.3 Kilos only, dont know if it's strong enough to do a crazy trail ride which I'm doing a lot. So far for the past 3 month, the frame still holding strong, no jump..pure XC ride would be fun on this bike.
