Strength:

Lighter weight 853 steel is strong and ride quality is excellent, tapered steer, threaded bottom bracket, tire clearance, long-ish top tube, 275 wheel size, replaceable derailure hanger, dropper routing braze ons.

Weakness:

kinda spendy for a steel hardtail frame and geo feels more cross country or light trail to me, head angle is 69 bottom bracket is high and for some reason they won't update it to 142 X 12 so you may have to get a 135 x 10 conversion as i did.

this bike is a sweet ride and is great for cross country and light trail use... I find when I am really pushing or wanting to ride something steep this bike is ok but not great.. I think the Kona explosif with their geometry might be more of what I was looking for.... This bike is great but I think I was expecting it to feel a bit more capable for trail riding.. It is conservative in its head tube angle and bottom bracket height especially..
