Strengths:    Weight, Strength and price

Weaknesses:    Paint or lack of, needs a finishing protective coat.

Bottom Line:   
This bike was bought for £125 new from a bike shop closing down and was a steal, so bought 2! If you paid full price then its still a very good buy and i havent rode anything else in this price range even close to this for value.

Ive built this bike up from scratch and is running very well, stiff at rear and little front flex whilst cornering makes this a good XC bike. It decends well too and takes all ive thrown at it, including trees and fences and the odd drop off. The 3.3 rear shock with pro peddle which i received with the frame was retailing for £249.99 but got it free and is a beauty with no problems at all and can only be recommended with this frame style. Pics on request as people are having problems with their rear shock layout andrewhurst1983@yahoo.co.uk

Strengths:    --Lightweight Frame
--Amazing climber
--Solid on the downhills
--Very rare
--A big bang for your buck
--No bob


Weaknesses:    --Paint job is crappy and unimpressive
--After 6 months the frame squeaks a little bit when you are putting a lot of sideways torque on it.. I oiled up the pivots which solved the problem
--The rear shock (Rock Shox Monarch 4.2) is a piece of crap - the lockout switch doesn't do much, it has busted its seals on me, and it has this stupid pivoting valve. The pivoting valve is unaccessible due to the suspension bars of the frame!! You can get to valve by disassembling the suspension (not difficult), but this is a bad shock, especially for this bike. go for a fox shock.
--I know this is a trail bike but I wish the top tube was a bit longer and the head angle was a bit larger


Bottom Line:   
This frame looks kind of rudimentary compared to some of the pricey modern marvels. But for the price, it works very very good. An efficient climber and good on the downhills too. I've clocked nearly 2000 miles on my Canzo and it hasn't let me down at all.

Strengths:    Price!

Weaknesses:    Really thin paint. But my bikes look like crap after one season anyway cuz I RIDE!

Bottom Line:   
After 15 years of riding HT's decided to give the XC FS a try. Didn't want to spend a ton on a frame. Bought this, threw a bunch of xt stuff on it, and WOW! What a blast to ride. My scale shows 27.5 lbs. Yeah a little on the heavy side, but it didn't cost two grand just for the frame. Since I don't ride to be part of an elite clique I doubt I'll ever go back to HT's and I'll ride this budget frame till it breaks. I'm a clyde at 225 and it so far it's holding up to my abuse, no signs of flexing. I ride about 3 time a week, avg 20 miles per ride.

I built this frame up with parts from my RTS and some new parts, great bike for XC and all mountain riding. It can be ridden hard and fast and handle it or you can do all day rides on it. I would give it 5 chilis
