Strength:

Takes a beating, has a really solid feel. Very light. Kick-butt looks

Weakness:

None

This bike is just fun riding, and no problems. If your a xc rider with a bit of freeride in them this is what you want. I think this bike would be a excellent freeride machine with the addition of a psylo.

This bike is a very sharp ride. The standard Torrent comes with Atom Bombs, XTR der's and Race Face Crankset. I went to Avid Arch Supremes and Ultimate levers in the brake department, shod it with Wildgrippers and stretched the cabin with a RaceFace XY seatpost. (ATAC Pedal and Oury grips of course!)In all truth - I actually started with the frameset.I've never ridden anything that feels so precise. A nice and probably better alternative to some of the other performance hard tails.

Strength:

Great frame for the price. Can be built up to under 22lbs.

Weakness:

Price doesn't allow it to get too light. Seat/chainstays are not made of Easton tubes...

I bought the Torrent as a frame only and built it up piece by piece. I've spent about 3000CAD on the bike now and it's sitting at around 21.5lbs. This bike has a very solid feel to it. Climbs very quickly and is really stiff. It kinda makes me miss the feeling of a nice steel hardtail...but this bike is EFFICIENT.
