Strength:

Bulletproof.
Lifetime Guarantee.
Sweet Ride.
Beautiful Finish.
Carbon Fiber = Strong & Supple

Weakness:

need more mud clearance on lower chainstay/BB area.not cheap.

There is no better cross country bike in the dry; mud seems to collect behind the BB, though. Amazing ride - the absolute toughest bike i've ridden. Takes all the abuse that would make any aluminum or titanium bike fall to pieces.

Damn good bike, A-OK in my book. I like cheese, I like ice cream too. My favorite is Coffee flavored. Hagen Daz makes the best ice cream there is. I hate that wanna-be Ben and Jerry's CRAP. I wouldn't wipe my ass with that ice cream. I once caught a fish too, we didn't eat it though. Threw it back.

This is the best hard tail I have ridden. I have one of the older models with a 1 headset, the new ones have 1 1/8. It is not the lighest carbon frame around, but that is a good thing since it will never brake. My twin has the exact same thing and was hit by a Mustang last week. the only this that happened to the frame was some paint got chipped off. Aegis and our local dealer, S&W sports, are replaceing it though for safety sake through the crash replacement warranty. Aegis has a LIFETIME warranty on there frames, and a Crash replacement which will get you a new frame for a lot less than retail in case you mess it up real bad. Aegis knows carbon fiber, they own three patents on the frame construction. I had an M2 before, which was a little bit quicker in the the tight stuff, but beat the crap out of my back. I have it built up with a good list of stuff and it comes in at just over 23lbs. No stupid light stuff, but light stuff that will last. I you want a racing hardtail or a smooth riding trail bike then I would check out Aegis. Hardtails rule!!!
