Strength:

very strong frame, handles well, good geometry, looks good

Weakness:

base componants are less thann brilliant, for example the forks (rsts) are awful and fail very quickly,

an excellent frame which is ideal for dirt jumping or street biking and will suit anyone from the most basic beginner to someone who takes their biking seriously.

Strength:

I have an '09 model, light solid frame, solid crankset and decent gearing, hubs and wheels sweet as, good front and rear derailluers, gripy as f*

Weakness:

brakes dont pull me up as good as my hayes on my kona. (hard to do stoppies). a little weird gettin used to the sram trigger shifters for the first few rides, forks dont adjust much at all

pretty good bike all up, lighter than i expected, grips, bars, frame all feels pretty comfortable. im considering upgrading forks because they feel too soft, they dont adjust much at all. also thinking about trying different compoud brake pads because they seem like a very hard compoud (not to my liking) or changing over to hayes brakes. handles very nice and sharp, rolls pretty good. i have plans to change the front chainring to a single speed with a decent chain guide. slightly over priced. highly recomended bike for anyone. best bike ive ridden and owned
