Strengths:    Great bike! Very light (XT kit)and very fast. Turns on a dime. It feels like 100% of my pedal stroke goes straight to the back wheel.

Weaknesses:    Pivot bushing has a bad squeak after 6 months of riding. I had it replaced and it has been flawless ever since.

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for a great cross country bike, you won't regret this purchase!

Strengths:    This bike is light, pedals well, can be singlespeed with out chain tensioning device.

Weaknesses:    Decals, but to be fair I tape things to my bike in endurance races so any decal would chip off with the tape.

Bottom Line:   
This bike ripps, if you lose dont blame the bike, blame your lack of preperation. Really this bike has everything anyone could want in a bike, simple service, fast, and awesome looking.
Dont buy this bike if you are just going to fart around on some trails. Although it could take decades of riding.
This bike is a pure bred race steed, and therefore would be unhappy spinning up climbs, it wants to be hammered.
I have tried to justify buying a new bike, but can't.

200mm rotor with Rockshox Revelation 140 on a 29er

Hi Folk, The other day at the shop, the service staff said not to put a 200mm rotor on my bike because "The fork is too flexy for that size". I do lots of techy downhills and long descending AM/XC riding - (Coastal Mountain BC blue and black trails). My one finger gets tired sometimes, especially ... Read More »
