Strength:

Strong, stiff frame. great geometry. lots of options for breaks and drive train. You can go geared or singlespeed and v-brakes or disk brakes. Plus you can run up to a 130mm travel fork.

Weakness:

hard to find a rear hub with a 14mm axle and disk brake flange

This bike is awesome. The frame was a great deal. It really sucks that origin8 discontinued it. If you can find one, get it. Great geometry with pretty short chain stays. I'm a heavy guy (225 pounds) and this frame is stiff enough for me. Plus its Chromo so it isn't as harsh as an aluminum frame.

Strength:

chromoly frame, heaps of options, single speed, geared, disc or v-brake. From google it seems people tend to grind off the v-brake cable guides. The geometry is perfect for me. I'm 5 ft 8in. Perfect for dirt jumping at a price that makes it very affordable to switch from BMX.

Weakness:

None so far

Origin 8 are new in the dirt jump business, but I think they've come in to the market with a frame that shows people that you don't need to spend mega bucks to get a great frame. If you're looking at getting into dirt jumping, or want to ride something different from every one else, then this is definitely the way to go. It's a strong frame with wicked geometry. Build it up how you want to, start low end in the beginning but then as you get better keep adding better and better components, but just keep the frame.
