Strengths:    Overall great bike, some real nice parts, and feels real nice. Just about everything's built overkill, so it can take a good beating.

Weaknesses:    Only real weakness is you may wanna replace some of the parts it comes with.. Maxx Daddy tires aren't that great and have some papery thin sidewalls.. the sprocket - while being a nice sprocket - is 44t and only 1/8" thick, along with the 1/8" chain.. and you'll probably wanna replace the fsa crank after a while, although it did last over a year for me. other than that, the bike's still going strong.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome bike, definitely worth the money. I've used it for dirt, park, and mainly street, and it holds up to everything. quality parts, but you'll most likely want to switch some things around to suit your riding.. and generally make the bike the best it can be. good luck finding one though, i think marin stopped makin these things back in 2002 - but i could be wrong. go have a look around, and if you can find one, buy it right up.
