forks,brakes the list is endless

An alright bike for the money but any one who is serious about riding will know this bike has quite a few faults not perticularly good at trials or dirt jumping as forks are weak ok for street riding

Strength:

Frame is super strong, rims are super strong, headset, stem, bar are all super good. Can't go wrong with a SDG seat. Shiftings smooth.

Weakness:

MZ fork is terrible, the seals, and crown are horrendiously weak and BAD. WTB tires are not that good either. Brakes could be upgraded. Crank set is weak like tissue paper.

the frame and rims and head set is awesome. The bike urges you to go bigger and the frame and rims can take a beating.
Just upgrade the crankset, fork, tires, and your good to go and for an extra 90$ canadian you can get a sram 9.0 derailler. Pretty sweet bike 4 what u get.

I gave this bike a 4 outts 5 just cuz u gotta upgrade 2 of the most expensive thing on the bike plus the tires.

Strength:

The frame is strong. the syncros rims are sweet, all is a strength except below

Weakness:

the forks are pretty crap, the brakes could of been better, still better than v's alot better after a bit of use though, and the fropnt derailer is a heap of crap

its a great beginner bike no complaints if your just getting into it the forks you wont complain, the bike is lite, i bent the bolt on the stem but got it replaced, other than that if your new you cant go wrong.......

Strength:

Frame. I bought the 2.0. After not very long the Syncros rims split, then the Judy T2's broke at the arch and whatever the cranks (LX I think) on it were they rounded off at the BB. I still cannot jump a bike but this thing has taken over a 1000kms of abuse, drops, trials weekend downhilling and the frame is still 100%. Still have the original GT seatpost, and front mech, that is all.

Weakness:

See above for bits that are pretty poor but not to unexpected for a bike wasn't too much dollars.

Yes the frame is an awesome strong beast that prefers a 100mm fork at the front and strong parts for awesome trials/slalom/dh practice but do not ride it on an epic or you will have a sore ass becuase it is very rigid and that is that. Only 3 flamin chillis becuase most of the stock parts don't last but the frame is worth 5 chillis. Oh and I have a medium frame (16.5 inch I think) but I would ride a 17 inch for cross country purposes, the smaller frame really lets you be the boss man.
