    Strengths:    Frame, Geometry, Climbing, Suspension travel

    Weaknesses:    none, I could see problems with weak parts if for some reason you would put cheap parts on a really nice frame.

    Bottom Line:   
    Awesome Bike! for the price I got it for. I got a steal on this from a 16 year old who was selling for parts on his road bike through craigslist.\

    Have only a few rides with the bike set up properly and it is very nice, with lockout it climbs like a charging beast compared to any other FS I have ridden.

    Unfortunately I had a bad rear shock most of the rides on it so far resulting in poor performance, but that is faulty equipment, my LBS were gods and somehow got me a factory replacement Monarch RT3 for free as long as I gave them my faulty RockShox Monarch 2.1 shock that came with the bike originally(Woot Upgrade for Free!!!)
    Thank you Joy Ride Bikes in Lacey!!!!!

    one of the best bikes I have ridden!!!!
