Strengths:    Excellent construction, great attention to detail, welds are awesome. It is light weight and maneuverable. Dropouts are extra strong. Holds a straight line like no other and climbs like a beast.

Weaknesses:    Can feel to light, almost unstable in the fork when navigating in tight areas, but just takes time to get used to.

Bottom Line:   
The bike is a great price point for people looking to jump into the sport or for those who are already living it up who do not want to spend everything they own on a bike. The Auriga Pro hydraulic disc brakes are legit, and the Shimano set up is unbelievable.
