Strength:

Light, stiff, and tecno

Weakness:

All Coda products on it, specially the brakes.

The bike is more a free ride than a XC. The brakes are for a bike worth less than $500. It is disgusting having them in a bike of such a high price.

Should I have tested the CODA brakes before, I would have only bought the frame and fork.

Strength:

Light, ridgid, smooth, stiction free, and as much as I hate to admit it, the fork looks really cool

Weakness:

The fork looks really cool. Sometimes draws attention that you may not want.

Great fork.
I have nothing negative about the performance.
All of the talk about it causing tourque to one side is a load of S--t!
It feels just like any other fork. The only difference is that there are no other forks of this weight that offer as much performance.
It's pretty pricey, but worth every penny!

people don't give cannondale enuogh credit for their advancment in the mountainbike biz.i get all kinds of questions to the design and reliability,i usually tell them i'd feel free to answer any of their questions if i don't have to wait to long at the bottom of the run. also i dont see anybody else doing 7' drops on thier 4.5" travel bike!
they all stand and watch.

Strength:

Lots of travel. Great for people who love to have attention. Draws people to it like flys to shit. Seems to be a good suspension solution? or a great marketing hype! Time will tell.

Weakness:

Friends will want to puke as neophytes fawn over Cannondale's marketing marvel.
Carbon is back. Corrosive carbon next to magnesium. I hope they figured out cathodic anodic reaction.

I have a great tolerance for new design; though, I am unsure of where this company is going. Yea-- I'll end up with a Lefty. I will just wait till they are offered once again, at Priceclub.
I will say, no matter what is said, riding is where it is at. It does not matter what you ride- but the fact that you ride. Do not let some Fred or Herb to allow your emotions to be caught up in a absurd gross version of retail therapy.
Ride Mo Fo.
