Strength:

Frame geometry and quality. The bike has zero lateral flex and the through axle up from with the 1.5 headset creates a precise steering feel. The sram ride brakes have great stopping power with good modulation. The sno shoe tires are light 1260 grams with excellent feel 120 tpi.

Weakness:

The seat and seat post are boat anchors. A Thomson post and Ritchey Streem seat took off more than a pound. The original tubes are very heavy. Q-lite sl tubes took off another pound.

This bike provides excellent bang for your buck. The frames geometry and quality of build are excellent. This bike can be bombed down twisty single track with complete confidence. The brakes are excellent. With a few modifications I have managed to get it down to 32 lbs. My 15.5 inch frame with all components excluding the wheelset weighs in at 16 lbs. The wheelset, tires, cassette, and rotors weighs in at another 16lbs. Buying a carbon wheelset and some 3.8 inch tires could easily bring this bike into the 28.5 lbs category with a total cost of around $1800.00. This is a steal of a deal.
