Strengths:    Great fork - 130cm travel. DoubleCrowed. The Al. frame it's ok. Good rear travel.

Weaknesses:    I didn't find yet anyone. Yet. In the few month maybe. Anyway the frame don't have any v-brake mounts. It's ready only for disk. Other thing: You can use on rear only 2.1 -2.2 tire!!! This suck. You must have much care when you ride.

Bottom Line:   
At this value, a great bike. The fork work like in haven. I hope that will be a good one also. Good rear travel. A real problem is the rear tire. Until now I just love it.
After I will use for a 4-6 month I will be back with some news.
