Strengths:    I bought the frame to replace a damaged TREK 930 Steel Hardtail that I have used and abused for 8 years. As with most Ti bikes the ride is superbly smooth, I chose this frame as the geometry was correct for my riding style, and size. The frame is well made, the geometry is correct, the finishing detail is excellent. I built the Bike up myself and all the attachments, bottom bracket, etc. fitted with ease.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I ride mostly cross country, at week-ends, technical trails and anything that challenges my skills. The frame handles everything with ease, it is awsome, excellent uphill and downhill. I also use it everyday to commute to work as this is my workhorse. Cannot praise it enough.
The frame can also be used for trekking/touring as it is equipped with a variety of bosses for attaching racks/panniers.
This frame will suit all riders from beginners to racing weight weenies excellent.
