Strengths:    amazing frameset and the spv shock works beautifully, even for a clydesdale

Weaknesses:    makes my GF Sugar just sit and collect dust

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. Frame geometry seems perfect for me. Climbs like a goat and floats over the bumps. Would never buy one with stock components, but set up the way I want it never dissapoints.

Strengths:    Super super quick. Very responsive. Perfect cockpit for me. Shocks. Other components.

Weaknesses:    Brake system doesn't seem to work perfectly. Impossible to get any adjustment on the front.

Bottom Line:   
I'm about as anal as they come so everything has to be perfect. That said, I have never felt this comfortable on any bike... scratch that... anyTHING! I wish I was a better mechanic. Having a nice bike means having a bike that needs a little more attention.

Strengths:    Agile.

Weaknesses:    Everyone would like a lighter. I didn't care for the stock saddle right out of the box.

Bottom Line:   
I have no complaints because this bike got the parts needed to make it lighter before leaving the store. I upgraded from V-brakes to disc. This is my only complaint. I should have gone with the Avid Juicy's. I have not had good luck with the Hayes.
If I went with the stock bike I would not have been happy! Make sure you have a little extra cash in your budget for upgrades to make your ride what you want it to be.
