Strength:

Fun, very tough, not as heavy as it looks. SDG I-Sky is the sofa of saddles.

Weakness:

Deore LX danglies are very bland and lifeless, and the stock tyres wear fast, despite not being all that soft.

Fun bike, really fun, and perhaps the last good all-rounder in the Ruckus range, which now seems to be all about the jump frames. This is ideal for the light-weight single track around my area, but it really makes a fist of the more heavy stuff too, with a really low centre of gravity that lets you chuck it into the turns with confidence.

Used it almost every day for the last five years and it's only ever been consumables that have let me down, tubes, cables etc., aside from 1 front & 1 rear derailleur and a replacement saddle (after a particularly crappy scrape i had with a kerb, coming out of the forest on a wet day), 1 change of cassette and a couple of chains through wear, i can't complain at all.

Strength:

strong frame, solid forks, good stopping power from the magura brakes.

Weakness:

grips tend to slip, pedal pins easily lost, needs bigger tyres.

This is a very good bike for dirt jumping, and street riding, but also pretty good round my local trails.
The only thing i dislike about this bike is, the new metal damping valve in the DJ3 which makes a clicking noise, which marzocchi say is normal because its metal on metal, were as before they were nylon.
