Strengths:    It a very light and responsive frame, it is solid and meke you feel very secure. It also shows a great craftmanship, the people who build that frame, put a lot of love in it!

Weaknesses:    None, a bit expensive ( but hey this high quality!)

Bottom Line:   
I purchase every single parts of this bike online, built it and just love it. It is my third bike, and the best ride I ever got. The only bad thing about this septup is that for some people it will sound like a lot of money.

Strengths:    This is the same frame as the Litespeed Obed and the Malcalu.
It has a super quick energy to it, it feeds off of every roll in the trail, climbs like a street walker going towards a $50, and rolls down the hill like a crackhead running from the cops.

Weaknesses:    None, just rider error and weight!
And the Hopes are loud, loud loud
and no replaceable deraillure hanger...

I complain too much

Bottom Line:   
This bike is light (23lbs) and whippy, I just love it. Its sort of like a good shoulder mounted rocket, just fire and forget.
However, she does love to be ridden HARD, and if you don't succomb to her wants, your legs and back will pay the price for the transgression.
The nice thing is that you can set this up as YOU want it, because its just a frame.
And even better, since its sort of an "undermarked" frame, no one knows its Ti, and thus fewer people want to steal it.
And since its built by the good people at Litespeed, it comes with all of the S-bends and other nice things, but at a MUCH lower price.
