    Strengths:    Good components, stable handling, relatively bullet proof construction

    Weaknesses:    Heavier than it should be, but there is a lot of aluminum in that frame...

    Bottom Line:   
    This has been a good bike for me. I knew nothing about it when I bought it and just got lucky. A very good cross country ride, stable and neutral handling are definite plusses. It handles downhill mountain ski trails OK; not as good as a bike with more suspension, of course, but good enough to have fun on and not scare yourself too badly. Not the greatest accelerator, but it isn't exactly sluggish, either. If Haro coulda knocked off a couple of LB's on this it would have made a big difference. Still, I'd buy it again. Not as spunky as my hardtail, but it sure is a lot more comfortable to ride on a rough trail.

    Strengths:    Very light bike, great suspension with next to no bob at all, the Virtual Link is really effective. This bike has no problems with anything I have thrown at it so far, it's fast, has huge travel for xc riding. The sonix is a fast, lean racing machine.

    Weaknesses:    Nothing that wouldn't be just nitpicking.

    Bottom Line:   
    This bike can keep up with any other when ridden properly and adjusted to your specifics. Bombproof pleasurecraft.
