Strength:

Nice geometry and well finished frame. Been riding this on trails and jumps for a couple of years now, the other reviews seemed a bit unbalanced so thought I'd add my thoughts. Most of the stock equipment on mine was fine, the wheels however were a bit weak, not even double walled. Mine came with Marzocchi dirt jam forks and hayes hydraulic brakes, neither of these are top end, but both do the job without falling to bits. The bike looks good and I still enjoy riding it on jumps, street and trails years after buying it.

Weakness:

Some poor choices of stock parts.

Good Chromo frame, nice geometry, fun little bike. Stock wheelset not great.

Strength:

Awesome looking frame
Really nice geometry
Good placement of center of gravity

Weakness:

the screw holes for the chain device hard to find screws to fit!!

back disc brake mounts not the strongest (well i was using a mono6 with a 203mm disc)

Absolutly awesome bike, a pleasure to ride!! dont go overboard on the braking like i did or the frame WILL snap, apart from that you can batter the thing and ride home with just a few scratches.

Strength:

good componantary, good looks, amazing seat and post.

Weakness:

bad brakes, bad gearing, bad frame, bad wheelset and bad pedals

i killed the frame, brakes, gears, wheels and pedals in less than 2 months i had to pay twice as much for it now to get it to where i want it to be. dont just not buy this bike, dont buy a factory bike at this price range, because you end up changing almost everything on it anyway. if your a small guy that dosent use hard braking go for it, otherwise dont even try.
