Strengths:    Light (for a world cup DH frame), loads of travel, will take a triple chainset (good for us unlucky Brits who have to ride to the top), almost no pedal bob, unfeasably strongand VERY stiff, this frame has NO lateral flex whatsoever!, very adjustable, LOOKS !

Weaknesses:    Will only accept MRP chain devices due to the swingarm's main plate, cheap shock as standard, usual single pivot pedal feedback / braking stutter stuff (not that it's caused any proplems yet.),and that people cant walk past it without stopping me for a 5 minute conversation about how amazing it looks !

Bottom Line:   
This is the first real DH bike I've owned myself, and I have to say I'm thourghly impressed with the way it handles some oth the nastiest runs the Alps has to offer, and it has looks that turns heads everywhere I go. The chain device and rear shock are minor gripes that in no way have affected my ride, the DCD and front mech works as well as a real chain device (beauty of having chainstays) and won't snarn up, and to be fair, the DNM shock has performed brilliantly so far. All in all an exellent bombproof DH bike that can be used for all day hacking. Two thumbs up!
