Strength:

The rear of the bike is really ridged, and for a bike only cost me $1000 Canadian.

Weakness:

The rims that come with the bike are not that great. (SUN CR18)

a great buy. You're not going to get anything better for $1000 Canadian here in Canada. It can use some help with the wheels. The rims are not strong enough.
I also changed the tires, from the Maxxis to a Michelin Lite S in the rear and a Specialized Dirt Control in the front. I had to change the pedals as well since the things that came on it sucked. The thing to do is go to the Time pedals.

Strength:

Excellent component mix with full Shimano groupset.
ROCKSHOX are great

Weakness:

support from REBEL SPORT/WHEELS-IN-MOTION as a distributor SUCK. I'm looking for a rear derailleur hanger that they haven't been able to get for 6 months!!! BEWARE.

Buy it, but NOT from Wheels-in-Motion

Jarrod   Cross Country Rider [Oct 13, 2002]
Strength:

Super Rigid and Lite (like 23 lbs if that much) as a feather

Weakness:

None that I know of

Beast bike. Climbs like nobodys business. Stiff and lite enough to jump off anything. Seat is a bit stiff but you get used to it. get rid of Rock Shox crap and put on some Marzocchi shocks and be done with it. Ive jumped it off 3'+ rock ledges and she takes em like its nothin. Great bike. 4 flaming terds for value because somethings, the forks, could be better, and 5 for a kickass bike
