Date Reviewed: June 23, 2009

Strengths:    pretty light for a 120mm travel trail bike(24.3pounds with pedals),sexy as hell to look at(the teamline edition),extremely well made,super great components(full xt 2009 and not some mix and match crap),fast,grip like its on rails,stiff but compliant

Weaknesses:    not much so far

Bottom Line:   
super super bike....better then any big brand(specialized, giant,trek,santa cruz etc)bikes i have tried and with this spec, if made by these big boys...would have been in the 5500usd mark....very fast....i think more closer to a x-counrty race bike then a trail bike but the trail soul is there.fizik tundra saddle can be a bit hard for some but since i m use to road bike saddle,no worries at all.basically a must buy.also superb german detailing and finish

Date Reviewed: February 13, 2008

Strengths:    Great frame for XC riders

Weaknesses:    none yet, I ordered in OCT 2007 for the model 2008
I got mine in JAN becouse they build large sizes last (22")


Bottom Line:   
Ive done a nice distance now in Belgium and its a really nice bike I love it this is just my best buy ever! The suspension in the frame is just perfect for XC riding.
