Strength:

Fun, Fun, Fun. I have a Specialized FSR S-works which is my high $$ race bike, but sometimes nothing beats the fun of a beefy hardtail. This thing will run over anything. It has a higher bottom bracket than my FSR and is just fun to tank over things. I'm very suprised that it weighs as little as it does. This bike is pretty light considering its beefy frame and wheel set.

Weakness:

Components could be better. I switched Deore shifters to xt. Figured when I break the other stuff I'll upgrade. Bianchi had this bike spec'd out with Titec Hellbent handlebars but sent cheap aftermarket crap bars with the bike. When called on it Bianchi stated that they had run out of the Titec bars so replaced them with these. Bianchi should have done a better replacement job.

Buy it if you want a really fun bike, with a really good geometry. Rides nice as a freeride hardtail, or spec it out lighter and race it.
