Weaknesses: none, I could see problems with weak parts if for some reason you would put cheap parts on a really nice frame.
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!!!!!
Bike Setup: XTR dérailleurs, crankset and shifters. Avid Juicy 7 Brakes, Monkey Lite Handlebar. Mavix XC717 Wheelset. Fox Float 140mm Fork. With my build it weighs in at 28lbs which is great in my opinion for a medium 5.5inch travel bike.
Frame and/or parts. 650b compatible too.

After riding a friends XCT, I finally ordered a 555 off of craigslist... I have not yet heard from the guy who sold it to me, but below is a note I left on the Mountin Bike Riders website under their 555 review... No worries, though, I'll slowly be getting this one back on its feet. I'll post some ... Read More »

I've about decided I like hard tail better than full suspension, and I currently have a KHS XCT 555. It's pretty much new still and I'm only looking for about $400 for it and my thomson elite seatpost that goes with it. Problem is, right now it's winter and people aren't looking much at frames.
