Strength:

Lightweight, excellent build quality, flows through single track, climbs well, excellent brakes.

Weakness:

Bit of setting up bother on rear shock, stem seems a bit short but turns so well i'll leave it. Cheapo Headset.

Excellent product, great value for money. Nothing major to moan about. I may try a longer stem and see what it does and it will definitely get a better quality headset. Long may the love affair continue.

Strength:

Frame is stiff enough for me and light enough to help me keep climbing, and descend as fast as you like.
Good stock parts - full xt dual control, hope hubs.

Weakness:

As always was the case - ritchey headset - pure cheap $hite. Why did Orange ver buy such poor parts.

This bike is a supreme lightweight cross country babe. Too lightweight for free riding though up in the Austrian Alps - I have the scars to show for this. But hey - you live and learn.
I got hold of this for one and a hlaf grand direct from the factory, so value for money is sky high.

Strength:

Singletrack, downhill, uphill, very solid bike, planted feel in all conditions, truly awesome. Excellent trail bike/allrounder.

Weakness:

Chainsuck in middle ring, other than that have not found any. Not the lightest - but who cares when it rides this good.

Fantastic all day bike, hit it with anything you choose it comes back for more, flys through singletrack like no bike i have ridden. Test rode this bike once before being sold on full suss for 1st time, Hope brakes are awesome.
