Strength:

Everything. Solid build with well spec'd components. The forks are supple and reasonably free of flex for the riding I do. The brakes are good - a bleed and top is needed is needed but they don't squeal at all and have a great feel. Drivetrain is bang on. I know many people have a SRAM/Shimano preference but it works every time so no complaints here at all. Even the tyres are bang on despite living in a area predominantly pea gravel and sand.
I know some people also have a preference with regard rear shocks but so far the X-Fusion shock works really well.

Weakness:

The color - Lavender. Only because am a guy. Plannning to respray in the near future.

This is a well sorted and appropriately spec'd bike with heaps of room to lighten through component upgrade if you're a weight weenie. The handling is predictable and the geometry extremely comfy. But why is a guy writing this though? Bought for missus ( now ex ) who didn't want so when split decided not to waste a good investment. Sizing suited me bang on too whereas the mens sizing was either a little too small or big.
Despite being a womens model would happily recommend the bike or the relevant mens version. I use a alot of Specialiszed gear ( shoes, gloves etc ) and for me this bike really comfirms the quality of the brand.

Similar Products Used: Giant NRS1 frame with YETI ARC components ( XTR drivetrain with Manitou Mars fork and Rockshox rear shock ). Giant AC3 2003 model ( stock setup).
