Strengths:    Light, Stiff, Spec'd Well, Fox RP23 with ProPedal, climbs great and stays hooked up!

Weaknesses:    Brakes are a bit "grabby"- possibly just need a little more breaking in. Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 seatpost is a bit finicky, the saddle clamp leaves me thinking about swapping for a Thomson.

Bottom Line:   
I picked up the Pro version of this bike in "Raw Carbon" and XT trim level. Scored a great deal on this bike possibly because it's a "26er"? Fine by me!! It climbs incredibly well with the ProPedal lever in use, I actually prefer the ProPedal setting for the descents as well, it firms the ride up a bit, normal to me having ridden solely hardtails for XC up until this point. I've done 3 rides so far and nearly 60 miles, I've noticed no problems at this point, no creaking from frame or suspension whatsoever. This bike has me waking up with riding on my mind!

This bike feels really light though I have no means of weighing it. Some word of caution if buying this bike online. Verify the measurements with the seller as the 26er and 9er versions have different dimensions for the same "L" or "XL" frame sizes. If you can find this bike online at a closeout price I'd say jump on it,

Strengths:    i purchased the pro version, pretty light bike for a fs xl frame that i got. came in at 27.43 stock with pedals. 26.9 with tire swap and carbon bars. very very fast out of the corners, suspension is great reacts great, shock adjustments are freaking sweet. climbs great also so far nothing to complain about at all

Weaknesses:    nothing really, but the brakes are a little noisy already and kind of touchy, gonna swap rotors and try that, this bike comes with really light rotors and i think they are little to flexy

Bottom Line:   
super fast bike right from the get go, if u can get a good deal like i did on it i would definately recommend it and after riding a rdo 9er this bike felt just like it in every way besides being a little heavier than a rdo.
