    Strength:

    Great price, soaks up bumps and has a nice head angle. Use a 100 mm fork or less.

    Weakness:

    A bolt loosened up on a 24 race I was relaying in. Maybe a tad heavy if paying full price ($900.00 us). It may be a bit heavier than others in the same bracket. 7ish lbs for the large frame. $900 is too much for this frame.

    This is a decent single pivot frame and might be even better with an rp23 shock or Push'ed. I would not pay full price. There is a bit of flex in the rear but that can be part of the fun if you know how to ride it. I recommend nothing greater than a 100 mm fork, it would lift too much in the climbs. So far it has been a fun ride and time will tell about the quality.

    Strength:

    Price, decent looking, good amount of travel.

    Weakness:

    Not the prettiest welds, Fox's Float RL not their best work.

    I built this for my wife to ride, but I put my seat and pedals on it and ride it on longer rides. It is a fun bike to ride. As it is, it built up @ 28lbs. Lighter wheel would get it to pretty respectable weight for a 4.5 travel bike. Climbs well, descends good. I am not to fond of the Fox Rl shock, but that is easily changed.

    Strength:

    Super tight frame - light weight with great linkage. forget the bigger names getting rich off their name and not the product.

    Weakness:

    nada- and doubt any to come.

    this is a superb design for a xc/ all mountain bike, no lateral shake. Best mountain bike i have ever owned and will never need to buy another!

    Strength:

    Lightweight, excellent shock absorption characteristics, eye-catching design

    Weakness:

    Glossy paint scratches easily (very sensitive--you've got to be careful of nearby sharp or even dull pointed objects)

    It's the best XC Full Suspension Bike at a reasonable price...The design complements comfort and stability on rough roads when paired with entry-level or high-end supension systems...Riding on pavements makes you feel as if you're floating in the air...I recommend it for riders who enjoy "torturing" their MTB's while experiencing some sense of "calmness"...
