Strength:

frame finish is amazing, EBB is solid and functional - also allows for the avid 9er to experiment with various GEO setups - short/long chain stay + high/low BB hieght. Headset is IS, and is super simple and clean. Possible rear/front derailer too - so SS, 1X10, 2X10, 3X10 (or 9sp as well).

Weakness:

low profile - it just didnt get the flash that other SS bikes got. I think this is due to the nature of the "single speed" crowd...they just love to be different - and not from a bike company, like GF/Trek.

I built this up from parts, so its pretty special: 95mm/120mm Talas non-G2, 69/68 fork angle, XTR pedals and brakes, Haven with Captain ft, Saguaro rr, 32T/18T, Shimano Deore 175mm, thomson post, Henge saddle...THARIS wide bar 90mm PRO stem. Anyway, it ride low at 95mm and high and aggressive at 120mm. This little frame is a gem - original chain puts the EBB to the back and low...which I think works well. My RIG comes in at 23.1lbs and it could be much lighter but its not a wieght weenie bike, its a blaster SS. It feels short in tight single track and the back end easily pops over logs. Turning is good at either 95/120 and just depends on how you want to ride. I would say this is a great deal of a bike and it doesnt need to be pimped out to be fun.
