    Strengths:    Light weight, perfect welds and construction, good cable routing, incredible ride quality

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm 5'8" and went with a small (17") and it fits me perfect. Steering is fairly quick with a 120mm stem, but not too fast. The ride quality is very smooth for an aluminum frame. I don't get jack hammered going through the rough rocky sections like I used to with my stiff M80 frame.

    I like to ride technical singletrack with lots of roots, rocks, logs, and drops. A local riding trail has several 2 foot drops on a rocky downhill run that I bomb through on almost a weekly basis. No problems in the strength department, but then again I only weigh about 140 lbs with gear.

    While I've built mine up to be a reliable XC trail bike (I don't race), this frame could be built up to make a very light, fast racing bike. I'm very pleased with this frame and plan to ride this thing for years.
