    Strength:

    Durable, lightweight, very reliable

    Weakness:

    none

    i use mine with a 145mm travel 454 pike fork and a dnm 5.5 inch travel rearshock. And its great. It just keep rolling thru rocks and roots and jumps over drops well. Even in muddy trails, it just keeps on rolling. Attacking the trail is so easy with this.

    Strength:

    Lightweight, great parts, serious travel, crisp handling, great value

    Weakness:

    Rear shock needs breaking-in, perfectible brakes, weak painting

    Great value. You never get a 4.5" rear travel bike at this price. I recommend this bike to any beginner-medium XC biker who is looking for a well-performing bike without breaking the bank.
    The SR fork works well. It is soft (which good for some and bad for others) and has a lockout (!) and working preload adjusts. The rear shock (X-Fusion Glyde R) needs breaking-in so be patient. My only gripe about this bike is that the brakes can be more powerful. Yes, they do stop you, but you can get better ones.
    Despite the big frame size (21" for me) this bike is light (I can easily raise it by one arm) and handles very precisely. I've demo'd a Chumba EVO before which was considered "the most razor-sharp handling bike ever". The R1 comes very close.
    Great bike!
