Strengths:    gotta love the rear suspension. its awesome for preloading on small bumps and the lockout works great for climbing. tires grip like none other and the scandium frame is stout

Weaknesses:    brakes aren't the greatest, front brakes are basically gone after 10 rides but basically every component on this bike is upgradeable

Bottom Line:   
good level bike, feel totally in control when riding it. you can trust the shocks to float over humps and the tires to keep you on the trail!

Strengths:    Light for a full suspension, handle nice, smooth, comfortable and fun to ride. Nice paint job, same frame as higher end one20s.

Weaknesses:    can use a little more brakes, they are very noise in rain, also heard a lot of complains about the fork but I am not at the level I can tell great shocks from ok ones.

Bottom Line:   
great value and fun bike to go into full suspension xc riding.

Bike Setup:   Pretty bone stock, going to replace the largest crank gear with a bashring, since I never use it and it hits bigger logs when I go over them.

Strengths:    great bike for the money. Looks good and aggressive. Relatively light, and def. upgradeable.

Weaknesses:    It has a way of pushing your weight forward. Def. took some getting used to. A couple times I felt like my eye balls were gonna pop out of my head. not sure if it's the geometry of the bike or my riding style. Also, most equip. junkies are gonna rip on the brakes and fork.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the money with a solid frame. It has alot of upgrade potential with the brakes and fork.

I'm a relatively advanced rider. Not really into the racing scene anymore, but this bike is great if you like all day fun rides with moderate all mountain/jumps/drops etc.

I have alot of friends with much more expensive bikes which I have tested, and as long as you're not a racer or a weight weenie with a stationary bike at home, this bike will get the job done.
