    Strength:

    Very welcoming geometry, you feel immediately at home on this bike. Very agile bike, easy to throw around and jumps great for a XC bike.
    Good component package, I only swapped the straight alu bars to carbon lo-risers and at some the Juicys had enough of it, and switched to Elexirs. Never had any problems with gears, wheels, etc.

    Weakness:

    Frame weight is a little higher when you compare to other modern frames these days.

    Great, agile bike that will give you lots of fun rides!

    Strength:

    good looks, nice geometry, light weight.

    Weakness:

    non-existant headset.

    I've spent the last 2 weeks of my life looking for a headset that works. don't know if this only accounts for my bike, but there has to be something wrong with the IS-style headset. Don't ever bother with integrated headsets... CK FTW.

    Rode a trek fuel 90 last year but felt like I was getting lazy and I missed the full speed feeling you get on hardtail. Was a bit worried that going back to a hardtail would be too uncomfortable, wrong! This bike is a really really good bike for both maraton and xc events. It wieghts less than a scale 30 and is the smoothest xc race bike I've ever ridden. Look at Commencals website and read the press report on the flame page, I can say the report is correct.
