Strengths:    Superb value for money, in the whole great equipment - 'TREK fuel' like geometry, bullet proof and excellent build and component mix.

Weaknesses:    Forks - rubbish, I assume the base rock shox used to keep the overall price down. They performed OK until you really give it some stick. Simple and cheap upgrade to SIDs transformed this in to a comparable bike to my previous TREK fuel which cost twice as much.

Bottom Line:   
Purchased in Australia where the offerings I was used to in europe didn't exist - purchased from CELL bikes in Melbourne, shipped to Brisbane ready assembled cost @ $2000au @ £750 at the time. Still using it 7 years on and i've only replaced the forks and brake pads - budget 'Easton' hardware as standard performs well, Heyes discs perform better the XT hydrolics i was used to, however they're not easy on the eye...
