Strength:

Very well made. Nice paint job. They use sealed bearings rather than bushings at the pivots. The frame can take a lot of punishment. The rear travel is plush but the bike maintains stiffness and control.

Weakness:

None found yet.

Not a light bike, but it takes the roots and rocks of central VA without a problem. Well built, excellent customer service. A relible, bombproof bike made for adverse conditions.

Strength:

Suberb manufacturing and quality. Plush ride!

Weakness:

No way to mount V brakes.

This bike is sweet. It gives such a smooth ride that you have confidence to turn it up even on rough XC trails. It's certianly not a down hill rig, but it wasn't built for that purpose. I used the seat stay brake mounts from my Amp to mount the V brakes. The bike weighs a little over 24 pounds. It's well balanced, climbs great and rides smooth.
