    Strength:

    Strong
    No flex in the rear lickage
    Great bump absorbtion
    Bottomless

    Weakness:

    Nothing I noticed

    This is an awsome bike. The rear suspension is extremely plush and will smooth out any trail you ride, but it doesn't bottom out on drops either. The bike has great attention to detail, and the engineering that has gone into designing and analyzing the frame is the best. It is a bike that will allow you to push your limits but never break or buck you off. As soon as I can sell my current DH rig I'm buying on of these.

    Strength:

    Sucks up anything you can through at it. Any rock garden or any drop.

    Weakness:

    none

    This bike has brought so much more confidence to my riding. My hands use to kill after a day of riding on my old bike, now its like nothing everything is so smoot. I love this bike it is such a joy to ride. I purchased the bike from one of the team riders in Colorado and he was awsome, he even set up the bike for me before he sent it. I can't say enough about this bike. If you can get one do it you will be happy you did.

    Strength:

    wow, i just demo'd this bike for a day up at Whistler and it was NUTS! The thing is equipped with a 1.5 headtube, greaseable needle bearings, stiff a** rear triangle, and a monster of a rig. It was a lot lighter than it looked, and soaked up the rock gardens, drops, and everything else i threw at it. No Creaking either!!!!!

    Weakness:

    none from waht i demo'd

    Definately a bike worth considering for freeride and downhilling. The bike I rode had an awesome build that complemented everything about the Trigger and it's performance. The guys at Versus really have a rock solid rig here, and with its needle bearings and solid design, it's def. going to be my next rig. Give me till the end of summer!

    Strength:

    Rear end stability, needle bearings, angles, plush-a$$ rear end.

    Weakness:

    chain growth - doesn't peddle on the flats as well as some other DH rigs I've riden. A little on the heavier side of DH rigs.

    This bike is super sick. Handled the roughest terrain in the galaxy. We tested these rigs on trails that make northstar look paved. Super stable, super plush, felt like I was glued to the ground. The rear end is as plush and stable as can be, how you build the rest of the bike is up to you. If you wanna ride or race DH and you want the highest level of engineering and design in a frame then this is the rig for you.

    Strength:

    The trigger rips it up!!!!!!!!!! I railed my favorite tam trails on the trigger and can say that rear end is stiff and the geometry kills it through the fun stuff. Ive tried other bikes but they dont handle like the trigger.

    Weakness:

    Go ride it maybe you can find something cause I didnt

    The rig kills it whatever you want it can do with ease.

    Strength:

    Super stiff (one piece bb and lower pivot), 1.5 head tube, full length seat post, ICGS05 mounts

    Weakness:

    color options

    With a 32 tooth front I can ride almost any trail around leadville at 10,200 feet. The bike weighs in at 42pounds and climbs amazingly well. It rails corners and with the high bb height I never worry hanging up over rocky terrain. You can run a front derailure but I do not think you need it. This is a versitile freeride bike that I downhill race as well, oh yeah, throw in that occasional epic too.
