Strength:

Awesome, big frame, big travel(although i have mine adjusted down to 5inch), good smooth bearings, lots of gussets.

Weakness:

too heavy for pushing up the hill

Awesome for a first big bike, although a bit on the heavy side it is virtually indestructable.
I would recomend this bike to anyone who is looking for a good DH or freeride bike.

Strength:

8 inches of very plush suspension. Can ride over anything and it feels smooth as. Adjustability with linkage mounts. Very strong and beefy frame. Price. I payed 1000 Australian (frane only), and nothing comes close. The 4 bar linkage feels as sweet as anything in the 3000 dollar range.

Weakness:

On the heavy side. Not necessarily for most people but as im only 55kg it is too heavy for me.

Best value for money for any downhiller

Strength:

The spec of the bike is well thought out

Weakness:

I bought my bike second hand and found a small crack on one of the welds on the chainstay.

If there was never the crack on the chain stay i would be able to say that this bike is great.
Four stars only because of the crack.
