Strength:

Stiff frame with no lateral movement, Awesome colour choices, Fun

Weakness:

Frame paint easily scratched, Cable routing to close to frame at head tube area leading to rubbing and paint loss

This bike is brilliant. So many applications. I put the seat up and go for an XC ride back down again to Jump, 4x, Downhill and light free ride. Buy this if you are a hard tail rider affraid of loosing the sprint charactistics of a hard tail but want to cushion that hard tail ridgidity upon landing or casing. She be heavier than a hard tail but you wont notice as you will be having to much fun.

Strength:

Responsive, just the right amount of squish, durable as hell

Weakness:

Heavy, but heavy and durability go hand in hand, so what can you do?

This bike is amazing, smooths out the landing so you feel like you're going over jumps on a couch, but it's still as responsive as most dirt jumper hardtails out there. Best bike I've ever owned (though I just bought a Transition Blindside, so we'll see where that goes!)

BUY THIS BIKE!!!! it is the best bike i have ever ridden and i have ridden a lot, before i bought this bike i thought it was a stupid little small travel useless bike, but believe me i was wrong, i sold my DH bike and my hard tail because really all u need is one transition double.

Strength:

Huckable
agile
It's a beautiful bike
gets a lot of "stares!"
Lighter than some hardtails

Weakness:

Hmmm... No Auto Pilot

Get this bike, if you can afford it.

But if you can't, get the Black Market Mob!!!

and please, buy the frame only, after all, the setup

of a bike really says a lot about you...

Strength:

Durable, throw-able, stable, and fairly light

Weakness:

none so far, it's been outstanding

Great bike, it has really made me a more confident rider. I'm hitting stuff on this bike that I wouldn't hit on my 7" travel bike only 4 months ago!

Strength:

^ price was frame and shok only.

evrything, super stiff, no lateral movement in the swingarm, literally feels like a hardtail and lands like a dually. light bike for my setup.

Weakness:

none as of yet and i doubt there will be.

i use this bike as my 4cross/duel slalom racer and also my dirt jumper, it is an amazing bike as said before, it really does pedal, mono, jump, ride and rail like a hardtail.
its not till you land a jump that you feel the suspension activate and take the edge off the sometimes harsh landings of a baeten trak or some of the other obstacles you may find in some rough duelly tracks.
i would recomend this bike to anyone who wanted a 4cross bike that doubles as a dirtjumper and can take both beatings wanting more.
if i kood give it more chillis i wood.

Strength:

the over all fell of the bike is great. it really is a hard tail untill you land a jump and the rear end takes away every thing. its very siff i set it up with no sag so it feels very nimble and light, yet on the trail it doesent bounce like a hard tail and its plush on the transition of jumps and drops. its unreal.

Weakness:

a little heavier than my jackel but on the jumps its very light and fast.

i have onley had it a week but the geometery is very close to my jackel so it was a natural transition. i set it up with no sag to give it a hard tail feel. i weigh 220 and the roco air has no problem about harsh bottom outs. i set it up with about 200-230 psi and it seems great. with 200psi it was very responsive on the trail and in berms but for bigger doubles 230psi feels better on the landings.for street and skater park so far i dont know,the shock moves on bunny hops and abubakas so i think a hard tail is better but once i spend more time on it that might change. i also want to try this frame with a coil over shock to see witch is better. this is my first air shock and it has a unnatural feel compared to a coil shock. over all its geat .
