Strength:

Compact design
weight (3.7kg)

Weakness:

The shock that comes with the frame struggles with the bigger stuff and the paint chips quite easily.

This is awesome value for money. The frame is worth a lot more than what it costs. It looks great in real life, it handles very nicely and it's light enough to get creative. For long XC rides, I move the shock forward to give 5" travel - this removes ALL the pedal bob, so it pedals like any other XC bike. It's also a great upgrade frame. The compact design is great for jumping. If you're looking for a decent freeride frame that won't break the bank, you have found what you were looking for. I give it 5 chilles, not because it's the best freeride frame on the market, but because it's probably the best value for money out there.

tf   Cross Country Rider [Feb 10, 2008]
Strength:

Good weight, looks good and handles pretty well (short for its size, so quite nimble).

Weakness:

Impossible to get essential spares (like bushings), no response from manufacturer to queries, no locking compound on bush bolts (!!!), the shock is not great, and the linkage design makes it difficult to replace.

Excellent value for money but the fact that CR do not supply wearables like bushes is a *real* PITA. Also, the CR contact email does not work.

The frame pivot bolts did not have any locking compound and quickly worked themeselves loose. If you want to replace the shock (which you probably will), make sure the replacement fits (the design of the linkage is such that the aircan has to be small enought to fit in between the leavers).
