Strength:

The bike I own is a 2017 Core 30. Its a fantastic fast riding frame that fits me perfectly , I have a long body and shorter legs and find it hard to get comfortable on a lot of bikes. I should ride a medium but this is a large and is a perfect fit . It ride with a very solid and planted feel but responds to input very well and pulls way when asked to . The equipment levels are good with a 2x10 drive train. Every thing shifts well. Brakes are cheaper Shimano ones I might look at changing those out for better ones at some stage . The first big upgrade will be a dropper post. If you can find one second hand you could get a real bargain as they don't have the look of other new style bikes so don't grab the eye or the price like other bikes . Its a well made bike which I think I might keep for a long time .

Weakness:

Compared to other bikes ( When new) it did offer poor value, Trek and other makes offered 1x10 and dropper posts for the same price, but none of those fitted me like this one does. The cable runs are external and are held in place with plastic guides which Im not sure about . The biggest draw back is that it does look almost retro agaist bikes of the same age. But thats not an issue when you see how it rides .
