Strengths:    Very nice component selection for the price. The WSD makes the ride just what full suspension should be and has been for bigger folk.

Weaknesses:    The stock Deore shifters, XT rear D and the SRAM 9 speed cassette did not love each other. Ghost shifting, crappy shifting = horrible ride. Additionally small hands made trigger shifting difficult. Too long shift travel for short fingers and thumbs.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike. Good looks and good performance. Mismatched shifting components need to be replaced. Cut a deal with your LBS when you buy it. Ditch the standard Deore shifters and go all SRAM like my husband did for me or maybe XT shifters to match the stock rear D. Almost forgot.... Seat needs replacing. Butterfly is very cute but seat is hard as rock.

Similar Products Used:   Hubby rides Giant AC-1 frame rigged for free-riding with full XT set-up. Got this bike when we got married so I could ride with him.

Bike Setup:   Bike is stock except for SRAM 7.0 ESP shorty gripshifters and SRAM 7.0 ESP rear D. After husband installed gripshifters and new rear D bike rides like a dream. Gripshift is perfect for folks with small hands.

Weaknesses:    lets people know my secret, that i have both sets of genitalia, i'm torn between being a man and a woman.

Bottom Line:

Strengths:    This bike was real nice and when I can afford another one I will get the Jekyll 400. I am a small woman at 5'2" and this is a very comfortable ride and the petite option fit real well too. The black with purple flames was sharp looking too. The fact that you can change the geometry to fit the ride is extremely appealing to me. I am waiting for some good deals out there due to Cannondale's financial woes. It won't stop me. This is a great bike ladies

Weaknesses:    Weight. This is about what feels like 6 or 7 lbs heavier than my Fuel (which is also a great bike.) Other than that I have no complaints.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike and if I could have bought this too I would have.
