Strengths:    Nice to ride. Seems quite well balanced. Reasonable components. I had a good price at the shop. £700

Weaknesses:    I haven't found any as yet, but I think the hubs and crankset will be upgraded first.

Bottom Line:   
I've done about 400 miles (a lot of it off road) on this bike so far and haven't had any problems. I specifically wanted a hardtail for training/keeping fit and this bike fits the bill. If and when anything breaks, I'll probably upgrade components. It's a good XC bike. Good value, quite light and seems strong.
