Strengths:    Its a Kick ass west coast built bike! ITs tough and light. (mine weights in at 39 lbs.) The Devo handles 5-6ft drops with ease, and kicks ass on the fast single track and dirt jumping.

Weaknesses:    The new Hayes brakes have a tacky friction fit plug where you bleed them from by the lever, it popped off and puked oil everywhere. I lost the plug and my front brake for the entire day. That sucked.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is bomb proof. Its great to see a relatively small BC company pumping out such rock solid bikes. Go get yourself one.

Strengths:    This bike kicks some serious ass, it's a great flatlander free stylin and downhill bike.
this was my second bike and the only one that could hold up to jumps and ramps over 5"!

Weaknesses:    The only weaknesses were the climbing capabilities with it being 200 pounds that weighs you down going up steep hills the other weakness is it's stock componet cranckset I upgradeed to higher quality set for better pedaling but the rest is all original and runing like a dream

Bottom Line:   
the bottom line is that this kick ass bike can hold its own plus some but when your ready for a serious downhill and freestyle bike come and look the devo up

super strong frameset.
plush suspension.
full hayes hydraulic disc.

wheelsets not strong enough (sun rhynolite suck ass).
freehub bodies lick pouch and cannot be upgraded to anything.

Bottom Line:   
this bike kicks some serious-ass. not a great climber but who gives a cuz it more than makes up for it on the flats and the downhills. you can launch a five foot drop and it sucks it up like a slut on prom night. this is a great bike from a small hardcore westcoast bike co. b.c. bikes are the best in the world!!!
