Strength:

easy to adjust to personal needs..
all parts(besides the tank-frame) are grinded after constant use for 2½ years, after that you can customize the bike as you want and still keep the respect for the brainacs at trek.(wich is where i am with the bike right now)

Weakness:

the aliviogear is a bit hard to sprayclean compared to the scram gear´s...
the fork is a big dull compared to the bike but its great in a skatepark(where i ride mostly)
last but NOT LEAST!!!
THIS IS A WARNING!!! YOU BRAKE YOUR BODY ON THIS BIKE!!!! YOUR GETTING DESTROYED!!
when i ride it i know that this bike can deal with anything logic on a trail.. but the human body cant, i have a list of damages for further readin..

used this bike ALOT!!
my thumb cant bend, my right knee hurts when its cold, my elbows have eyes but, my shoulder is getting better, it dosent click anymore! :)
there is a reason for why this bike is called bruiser, no safety atall, compared to what the bike can handle..
if you ever get a frame to this bike, BUY IT!!
the alivio gears from shimano could be better but its cheap to repair or even upgrade..
rest of the bike is awesome!!

Strength:

Strong frame, rims, crank, and handlebars. Great shifting.

Weakness:

Shocks are soft for DJ-ing, but great for trail riding. 1 shifter sticks but I think thats because I fell on it.

Great Bike. No problems yet and I have taken it on a few falls. Shocks can be adjusted, but doesn't really help that much. Only two gears in front so not great for long rides or racing. Rims are really strong. Has great response and takes a beating. Great bike for the price.

Strength:

frame, rims,seat,seat post

Weakness:

rear cassette,gear leavers(snapped after a week)

its a brilliant bike if your prepared to spend money on it all the time. your stuffed if you want to respray the bike in original colours due to scratches because they dont make matte navy blue anymore you have to mix it your self.

Strength:

Strong Rims, Strong crank, good sized frame, light as anything , loads of height off jumps due to soft fork- good for drops- took a nasty landing on a 10ft road gap ok. Overall a good strong bike for the money.

Weakness:

rebound on fork a bit of a handful,discs not too good,Cant go far without feeling tired as only two front chainrings.

great value for money- no better bike for £350 anywhere- better than a gt chucker spec wise- forks a bit on the soft side for dirt jumping- maybe upgrade to marchozzi dj's. Great for people who wantto go on a bike ride and dirt jump in the middle. Takes a lot of hammer. I have had considerable pleasure out of this bike every time I go out- a pleasure to ride.
