Strengths:    The MTB is really light and has the agility to make sharp turns from left to right. The suspension system performs well and up hill climbs pretty easy without a sweat.

Weaknesses:    Front Shocks are not that stiff.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for all terrain mountain Biking to achieve the ultimate outback adventure. This bike will never fail you!

Strengths:    Will not let you down

Weaknesses:    Fork is pretty whimpy

Bottom Line:   
I rode this bike HARD for 4 days in Canberra Aus. It is the best FS bike I have ridden to date. I hired it from the boys at Capital Bike Hire CBH, Canberra. Absolutely no bob on climbs and very good suspension when needed.Rode Stromlo and Sparrow and had the time of my life. Each ride was 3-4 hours and no complaints, at all. If i had not just built a 29er Ventana I would buy this bike. Buy a Faze 2 for upgrades, Faze 3 fork and wheels are entry level.
Thanks to Peter at CBH, will use them again.
4 chilis on each, no bike is a five!!!! let's be honest.
Cheers
