Strength:

Highest quality craftsmanship and components. Frame geometry transfers more power to rear wheel for best climbing and best handling bike on the market. Period. Feels lighter than its 23 lbs.

Weakness:

None.

Among the best hardtails made. Intuitive, quick, sure handling. Best brakes - no skidding! Brakes are powerful, smooth and progressive with little effort. You'll never go back to V-brakes. It eats up single track with ease. If you race one, as I have, you will learn why this bike is so expensive... it is worth every penny, unless you like coming second!
