Strength:

Lightweight and after many years of ownership it has been durable. It is also great for casual trail riding.

Weakness:

For the price you cannot expect high or mid range mountain bike components; therefore it is not a weakness per say. I wish it would have came with a 80mm travel fork.

Over the years I have added mid range components and can say it has served me well.

Strength:

Aluminum frame, gel saddle, aluminum wheels with stainless steel spokes with quick release hubs front and rear. The gears work well, the brakes stop on a dime.

Weakness:

The more you ride off road, the more you are going to want
toe clips.

You want to go offroad, it has plenty of gears, excellent brakes, the tires have a center ridge that is smooth on the street, but has good side knobs for traction on the trails. The gel saddle is soft enough for casual riders, but not big and heavy to get in the way of trail riding. The handle bar position is up so you don't have to hurt your back leaning over. The shock is basic but will be low maintenance and gets the job done. Alloy frame, wheels, brakes, deraileur, seatpost,rustproof spokes, quick releases for both wheels and seat adjustments. A perfect all around bike without breaking the bank. Cheaper bikes are heavy, expensive bikes are uncomfortable for casual riders.
