Strength:

Suspension, geometry, frame kit price, fun factor

Weakness:

Weight - compared to Nomad

Best bike I've owned for all round aggressive mountain biking - all day super tech backcountry xc, DH shuttles, freeride experimentalism, Megavalanche whatever. Suspension soaks it all up especially if you use DHX adjusters, but feels lively enough to boost out of corners like Sam on the Sunday. Angles, top tube, highish and wide BB give it a low, stable but flickable feel. DW link provides superb pedal response in the outer ring, but some feedback if you stomp out of the saddle in the small. Climbing traction amazing if you have the strength n gears to keep it planted...

Worth using a Hone/Saint rear mech mount to avoid the usual alloy hanger problem on a burly bike and use a large recessed rear tread like a DMR Digger or Maxxis Larsen to keep it zippy when the going is hardpacked. Replaced chainstay link bearing after 12months hard use.

So sweet you gotta get a test ride on proper terrain!

Strength:

great stand over height, low bb for good cornering. Very active rear end 7" feels like 8 .pedals well. Stronge 1.5 headset. can run 150-180mm forks.

Weakness:

Heavy compared to a nomad, air shock was sticky if you run it with loads of air (i am 225lbs). shock position means you have to take it of to chaneg the air preassure!!

Fast, stable, strong, can be used for light DH,cornering much better that the rest. Best to get a coil shock version unless you are under 180lbs, perfect for FR, light dh, and short al mountain. Done 200+ horus on it and no problems. Lighter thant a fr / dh rig stronger and tougher than a nomad.
