    Strength:

    great adjustable brakes. strong frame. great shock for jumping. small design great get around town bike, but tough enough to go downhill if u can hang on.

    Weakness:

    wheels are weak easy to dent > a ton of pinch flats and need more clearance for knobby tires.. I'm using street tires right now. slick on the rear and holly roller on the front. a lot of town riding.

    strong great bike from getting around town, to hitting downhill trails. sturdy dirt jumper> maintenance> mo 2 mo. maybe brake pads every 8 mo. and new tubes for the rear tire. great bike had a giant Yukon fx and destroyed it in 2 mo. this is a bombshell! great no complains

    Strength:

    strong frame, alright forks, strong crankset, good grippy pedals and looks the biz.also its probably the easiest bike to wheelie or manual on ive been on.

    Weakness:

    wheels are very weak and i buckled them in a flash and the chain stretched staright away. also the bars are very short with not much rise so i swapped them straight away.

    good bike, needs a few upgrades once baught.

    Strength:

    Light frame
    great Geometry
    Good SS tensioner
    Welgo pedals

    Weakness:

    Stock wheels
    Marzocchi DJ3's

    This bike is stunning. Rides like a dream and feels as light as a feather. In the air it feels more comfortable than any other bike I have ridden. It seems to soar with ease.

    The stock wheel set is awful and the Marzocchi DJ3's will soon be swapped with some RS Pike or Fox Van 32's if I have my way but for now they will suffice.

    Strength:

    It's a solid bike to ride, very good for streets and dirt, rims are very sturdy and suspension works very well. Light weight and is easy to get good air on even the smallest ramps.

    Weakness:

    I find that the gears on the rear tire aren't very strong and don't really support tons of force like when pullin wheelies or if u start uphill on the wrong gear. Also, when your going through mud, the mud clogs up between the frame arms holdin the back wheel area and makes it impossible to continue biking without clearing it out.

    good sturdy bike, could use better rear gears but is very good for the money. Probably best for street riders and

    Strength:

    Pretty much everything, esp. the wheels, and cranks.

    Weakness:

    The frame flexes a little too much for my taste under hard pedalling. it makes a distinct clicking noise, i chopped the seat post some more and that seamed to fix the problem. i guess the bottom of the seat post was rubbing the inside of the frame cause a clicking noise. i have checked there is no cracks or dents in the frame. oh and the bottom bracket keeps coming loose.

    Good for the money, maybe need a little tweeks here and there to make it feel perfect. If you are gonna use it for street riding and some local jumps it is perfect, maybe beef up the brakes and bottom bracket if you are using it for serious freeriding.

    Strong FRAME! and Forks, its light and the 07' is a good color

    Weakness:

    forks are to springy, I wollowed out the Truvativ Hussfelt Crank arms at the spindle, SS system is not the best, and Sun SOS wheels SUCK at least in the back so it now has a Supra BH

    except the 09 great for the money, with a few upgrades you would have a bike that would last for ever

    I bought the 2008 Giant STP SS it is my first decent dirt jump bike, this is a great bike, very smooth gears, chain, hubs, everything perfect. I don't see anything wrong with DJ3 forks, good, smooth and matches the bike perfectly.
    I think that the best thing with this bike is the weight. It is superbly light, and easy to ride.

    Weakness:

    So far i can't find or see any downsides.

    I would really advise this bike, especially as the price has dropped with the 2009 version coming out.
