Strength:

stiff light frame, yet strong
short chainstays, good for climbing and technical rides

Weakness:

long toptubes, my 19,5" L frame feels like XL

no V-brake bosses

this is actually for ZX 6900 Trail 2003 model which seem to be simmilar

steers precise, though not too flickery in forks 130mm mode - i'd say a perfect combo + you can run the bars low - it has really short headtube

both wheels or rear wheel first loses contact in fast curves - easy to control and play around

when fork is lowered climbs like a goat

can take good beating, trail jumps

really hard trail with lot of fist sized rocks slows it down, - steel rides much smoother then alu in these circumstances (well it's a personal preference)

anyway good bike, very playfull, you'll have fun on it
