Strengths:    Extremely light, the 2007 model is only 10.7kg. As it uses the SRAM components which are lighter, also with the juicy 5 brakeset. The Rockshox REBA fork is in my opinion the best XC fork on the market MUCH MUCH more adjustable than the SID or any FOX..

Weaknesses:    because the frame is anodised instead of painted it scratches easily - paint weighs more, the new models are painted for this reason, i'll take the weight savings thank you.

Bottom Line:   
The standard set up on this bike is 10/10 especially for weight weenies, the ritchey upgrades bring the weight down to just over 10.1 KG's the lightest aluminium bike on the market. there are carbon frames heavier than this baby. The 2007 model kicks the crap out of the 2008 model.
