Strength:

Very light, very supple, very strong. Feels like it's got some rear travel, but with none of the power loss or mush of even a top-end full susser. Accelerates and climes like nothing else I've ever riden, yet inspires confidence and is easy to place on the desents.

Weakness:

Not found any yet, apart from the truely terrible graphics, which will have to go.

Bought this 2008 ex pro racer for a bargain price, yet looks and feels like new. It feels like I've got a rocket up my backside, and despite the fact that the geometry is pretty racy, it's given me more confidence than my full Suss Stumpy, in almost as much comfort. I can't imagine what it would take to make me want to replace it. At aproaching £2500 list it's not a cheap frame, but frankly you can see and feel where the money goes.

Strength:

The bike handles great and really does a good job absorbing the shock. The frame is a work of art. Weld quality is exceptional.

Weakness:

The replaceable dropouts are my only complaint. I have two reasons for this. The rear wheel is difficult to install, I had to spread the dropouts to slide it in. Not a big deal except in races. I have also noticed that the rear deraileur moves quite a bit when tighten down the skewer on the QR. I don't notice any flex out back when riding.

I throughly enjoy riding this bike. I handles well in all conditions that I've encountered. It is fairly light, mine came in at 23 pounds with the parts listed above and could probably drop a pound pretty easily. The dropout issue is annoying, but not enough to stop me from giving it 5 Chilis.

I have an Ellsworth Truth that hasn't seen dirt since I took possession of this bike.

Strength:

Fast, responsive, climbs like a goat. Good over the rough stuff and goes downhill well. This frame doesn't mind the steep stuff. Replacable dropouts allow for single speed setup.

Weakness:

More frame sizes

Best hardtail MTB money can buy!
