Strengths:    This bike is very agile. It's really easy to turn which is great for the beginner that i am. It's a blast downhill and climbs very well. I actually pass people going uphill.

Weaknesses:    Manitou Forks. OG tires weak.

Bottom Line:   
I've had this bike for 5 months now with currently 653 miles on the clock. within the first 100 miles the forks completely gave out, oil everywhere. since still under warranty they replaced them free, but still seem to be spongy even in lock-out. i immediately upgraded the brakes, which are great. i love this bike. i will buy another fisher product, but one with better components and less bontrager billboards.

Strengths:    Trouble free so far, cushy ride with nice control going fast on downhill trails. Climbs well. standard front fork has a easy to reach lock out dial that provides rebound control when partially turned. Rear air shock has a semi easy to reach rebound control.

Weaknesses:    rear brake cable rubbing on the carbon rear fork. I need to get a bandaid on that soon.

Bottom Line:   
I've only used it a couple weeks, but since there is only one other report, I thought I'd get one out to back up the previous good report. This bike really smoothes out the roots, holes, fallen branches and makes it easier to jump the smaller of the deadfalls we have on all the woods roads around my place. It handles tight turns and changes in slope at least as well as I can.

Duration Product Used:   Less than 1 month

Price Paid:    $1149.00

Bike Setup:   All stock except I had the dealer switch out the clipless pedals to the old fasioned toe clips. I'm not a racer (yet) and have used toe clips for over 30 years with no problems. No need to change shoes just to go for a spin.

Weaknesses:    Cable Routing, Bad choice in location..
