Strength:

super strong frame, goo plush travel, easily upgraded

Weakness:

short top tube

Great bike, I've used for XC, free ride, some moderate drops, and some dirt jumping. Bottom line is this a fine bike, wish K2 would bring back a big hitter, they hit the mark with the tirade and it disappeared, why?

Strength:

PRICE! For the money, you just can't get a better group of components. Mtn Bike Action had rave reviews for the 5.0; this bike has a real solid feel to it.

Weakness:

Can't see wearing clipless pedals on a downhill / freeride / trail bike. Other than that, maybe the headset. It is a Ritchey, however.

I haven't really had an opportunity to put this bike through it's paces. However, Mtn. Bike Action loved the 5.0 and Uncle Sam gave me back some money this year, so I figured "why not?". I'll post a follow up after I beat it up. Oh yeah, the guys at Supergo slimed the tires for me for $20, and gave me free flat repair forever (no kiding). The brake and derailluer adjustments are free for the life of the bike too. They encouraged me to go out and ride the heck out of it and bring it back in for the free 30 day tune-up. See ya in 30, it's time to ride!

Strength:

Suspension, frame, brakes

Weakness:

None

Frame feels solid! Compared to my cannondale superV it's night and day. My superV had frame flex and many squeaks to it, awkwardness, and limited travel. On the K2 I luv the adjustable travel, brake set, and overall feel of this FS. Stock components are what I was looking for. Bought new to avoid ebay no warranty hassle on used bikes.

Strength:

Has great components, both front and rear suspension adjustable; Front: 100-120 cm and Rear: 4-6 inches.

Weakness:

Does not have a weakness if you use it for what it is made for.

In my opinion the best part is the adjustable suspension. It is the best bike in it's category by far for the money. You can get better but it is gioing to cost you a shade under $2000. Overall great bike for the money!

Strength:

good brakes,strong frame, good rear and front suspension.

Weakness:

a little bit heavy

soft riding feel going up and downhills (great suspension), after riding a hard-tail for 6 months now i feel like flying, excellent brakes, disk brakes are worth the additional weight, for the $900 bucks i paid is a great bike, I was afraid about the weight but "nowayjose" you don´t feel it.
