    Strength:

    THIS FRAME IS HELLA BEEFY, I DONT SEE HOW YOU WOULD BREAK IT, REALY PLUSH AND NOT TOO MUCH BOB

    Weakness:

    IT IS A LITTLE BITT HEAVY, BUT IF U ARE A DOWNHILLER YOU SHOULDNT BE THAT WORRIED BECAUSE THE M1 WAYS LIKE 3LBS MORE THAN THIS BEAST.

    BUY THIS BIKE IT IS A GOOD DEAL YOU CAN USUALLY FIND ONE ON CLASSIFIEDS, BUT ONCE YOU GET IT YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO SELL IT. THIS ID A NICE FUCIN FRAME

    Strength:

    Strong as hell, pretty fast on rocky sections, the geometry is great for DH and even technical stuff like the shore.

    Weakness:

    The headset gets lose every 2 rides and it's a pain in the ass to adjust it back. Some problems with the Shivers.

    It does not have a stem, so the fork goes directly to the handle bars, and that makes it very stable for me, and is easier to lift that killer fork.

    The headset problem is annoying, I have to adjust it every two rides, specialy if it is a technical ride. The guides for the front ring are messed up, you have to be careful and no hitting rocks otherwise you will be doing maintenance on the trail while your buddies are having fun.

    if seat is low, the rear tire will hit it if you bottom it down, but you get used to that.
