Strength:

The frame is pretty stiff ,good quality aluminium(6061-t6)
You have a good bike for the price.Avid brakes levers

Weakness:

Most of the original parts sucks,mostly the cr-18 rims

This bike is versatile (it's suppose to be a xc frame but I use it for urban assault).If you want a not to expensive bike that you can custom at your own will, this bike's for you

Strength:

The bike handles great in the trails. My Oryx came with jett xc so i'm pretty happy with them. Nice and light for the up and down type of riding I do.

Weakness:

I'm having problems with my front derailer. so there is still some fine tunning.

A great buy for the buck and a quality Canada bike.This bike is for the rec. rider but can take the punishment.

Strength:

Price is right.
Seems good for a heavy rider like me (200+ lbs).
Nice tough frame and very responsive.
Good for a rider who is starting to get serious and can upgrade parts as they break :)

Weakness:

Jett C's have got to go.
Will also go clipless next year.
May need riser bars also, I find I am bent over too far forward, especially on steep downhills ( don't like to endo :( ).

I like this bike, but anything is better than the '87 Norco Stubble Jumper I rode for several years before this. Nice bike to just hop on and go on any terrain. Takes a good beating on the rough downhills and climbs nice. Good through deep mud, creeks, bush and tight single track. I go through stuff I could never think of going through before. This bike feels more nimble and responsive than higher priced bikes.

Strength:

Looks great, Made in Canada aluminim Frame, Good value for the buck

Weakness:

Some original parts must be upgraded right away (Jet C's)

This thing handles great going down hill and climbs like a mountain goat. Aluminim frame is light and feels strong (so far) even for a 200lbs guy like me. Before you buy, give this thing a try. After a quick upgrade or to, it ROCKS.
