Strengths:    Light, Cheap, Excellent kit for the money. Rockshox fork, Fox Rear, Full SLX driver train and shifters, XT rear mech. Mavic Crossride wheelset, Schwable tyres, Easton bars

Weaknesses:    No real weaknesses. The only thing I would like to see is a tubless wheelset like the XT rather than the Mavic Crossrides. I just prefer tubeless.. that said, the Mavics are great, lightish and look good.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is awesome. It's relatively light considering it's the base model. The price is fantastic for the kit you get. The frame alone costs £1059 and the bike costs £1200 all in. For this price you're getting Rockshox recon gold RL forks, Fox Float RP2 rear shock, SLX Dynasis 3x10 transmission with XT rear mech. Nobby Nic tyres, Mavic Crossrde rims... the list goes on and on.

My advice is buy on if you can. The more expensive models have better kit, but the frameset is the same!
