Strength:

great plush strong dh frame. this bike has perfect angles making it a great handler.

Weakness:

Rear shock is weak and has blown twice on me (rock shox pro deluxe). also the AC chainguide suck without the bottom half!!

This bike is a great performer out of the box and forever after. it is a low maintainence machine that has ample plush and active travel, and it handles great too.

This is the King of Mountian bikes. Nothing can beat this, unless your Shaun Palmer, but your not. At least I don't think you are?

Strength:

Very, Very smooth ride. Handles well in tight technical sections. Lots of travel and sucks up anything you throw at it.

Weakness:

None that I can think of. The AC chain-guide works quite well actually and I have never had it fall off once.

If you want a bike that can do it all this is the bike for you. Doesn't weight too much so it is eash to throw around in the air. World Cup DH rig. Bulit To Be Ridden.

Strength:

Man this bike is SICK, The frame is just so good,great for tight windy technical Downhill courses like we have over here in Australia,8 super plush inches of travel in the rear 7'' in the front.

Weakness:

I really cant complain as i get mine for free, But if i was paying i'd be a little concerned about the pivots-Mine squeel like hell,and i'd also get rid of the AC chainguide cause that thing SUX ...

If you race or want to start raceing Downhill get this bike.

YOU WON'T REGRET IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've givven it five flammin turds because i get em' for free, and that's the best part.....

Strength:

It came in a huge box, and my shop where i work was amazed at how completely it was set up. The part spec is basically the same as the worldcup team, and its actually reasonably priced for a downhill bike.

Weakness:

Squeaky pivots, and a useless chain tensioner. The AC chain tensioner is a piece of junk and it I have seen one owner who modified an MRP chainguide, so i plan on doing that soon!

this bike can take anything, its great in the air, but a tad difficult to pedal on flat ground, but with 7 inches front and rear is that not expected? I'd suggest this or the santacruz super 8.

Unfortunately I got the last one in Canada!
*My value rating may be slightly off because i work at a shop and got it on pro deal!

Strength:

Unbeatable Frame, 4-bar rear suspension design

Weakness:

Sram components.

I had a chance to test this bike before it was available in the US. The frame feels awesome. You can feel its rigidity once you hop on it. The compoenets aren't my favorite, but I'd give it a five chilli just for the frame itself. Giant is a company originated in Taiwan. They really had some great stuff for the past couple of years. Sick, very sick.
