Strength:

I have the 2015 GT Fury World Cup. This bike is bangin! As a professional racer, this thing takes anything I throw at it. It tracks well in chunky rock, jumps playfully, rails turns. I was honestly quite surprised how well I took to this bike after having raced a Giant Glory last year. The stock build is solid with Saint Drive-train and brakes, the 40 Float is butter smooth. Seems petty, but I love the Atherton saddle on the bike - its smaller and doesn't get in the way.

Weakness:

I think the retail price is a bit high.
Bike is heavier than I would expect for $8200.00
I destroyed the flow wheelset - so I built up a set of Spank Spike 28 EVO with I-9 hubs. I can't really count that as a weakness though, I destroy almost any wheelset.

Overall, the strengths outweigh the weaknesses. I don't notice my weight complaint when riding the bike - this thing rails!! If I weren't sponsored, I would keep this bike and race it again next year..
