Strength:

smooth handling, climb well, good looking frame

Weakness:

steep headtube angle

I sold my XC htail frame to get this fullsus AM frame. First ride and just love it. with 69 deg head angle makes me easy to climb (even though i'm slow climber) it feels like my old HT, and it was also smooth machine for roots, rocky terrain and small to medium jumps. the rear suspension works very well. But, with steep head tube angle it was a bit nervous when i push it on rocky descent for more aggressive downhill. I would think pure AM frame should have at least 68 deg. If you're a fan to do more FR/DH action, this frame is not for you, but if you're XC to AM rider you'll like it. I would say this frame is awesome and worth for the money I spent.
