Strength:

Lightweight, XT drivetrain, 2.8 tires

Weakness:

12.8" BB height - Pedal strikes, The rubber frame and knock block protectors are peeling off because of the PA heat wave.

Having spent about 2 weeks riding this bike, I'm by no means an expert on it yet. Its a very nice ride though! I find that it climbs like my 29er yet I can rip turns like my 26er because of the tires. Very happy it came with 2.8 vs 3.0 tires. This is my first full carbon bike so I'm a bit nervous to really open up on the downhill sections but I feel this bike is begging for it.
