Very stable at high speeds
Durable paint
Awesome paint scheme

Weakness:

Upper rear shock bolt loosen often
Rear shock goes through its travel easily

This review is for the 2011 Frame that I built up. Bike is super fun to ride and takes a beating. I've crashed several times,one resulting on a broken collar bone, and the bike is still holding up; no paint chips, dings or dents. Bootleg, Snow Summit bike park, and Cowels Mountain San Diego. Just give a picture of the trails its been road on. Its a very stable on high speed straits and holds its line well when things get rough. Tight corners can be a handful to work with though. Surprisingly the bike climbs extremely well, even on tech climbs. The FOX rear shock is plush but goes through its travel easily, no matter how much I miss with it.

Strength:

Good looking N.W. Native American paint, stiff frame, good spec except for tires and grips.

Weakness:

Tires and grips. The WTB Prowler on the front is horable for my local dirt which is loamy and moist. Rear WTB Stout on the rear is good. Grips are DB BMX grips that are grippy but cheap and will stip fast. I replaced with a pair of lock ons. I do not like the Hammer Schmitt. Paint isn't very durable. Would like a little steeper seat angle for the climb and a slacker head angle for the descent but both are managable they way they are. DHX air feels less then lively so I changed to a Large can RP23 and it feels much better.

Great AM shredder with a few minor changes, mostly pearsonl type things. Great build for the price! It's a one of a kind out on the trail...people are alwasy asking about it.

Strength:

Components. Decent climber, unbelivable for freeride.
Fun bike.... hammershidt crank is the best thing since sliced bread.... you will stop using rear gears...

Weakness:

Weight.... 34.87... is always bad for going up.... going down, and jumping... just great.

Fun bike that gives you a lot of confidence when in the saddle. It gives you this "safe... IN not ON the bike" feeling that you can not fly over the bars, but you can :) and you will since you will try stuff you would have never done on any regular, light All-mountain bike.
