Strength:

Steel! Versatile Geometry.

Weakness:

Weight.

Awesome street/commuter machine which is what I mainly use it for. Also goes well on the trails and occasional DJ's. DMR forever! So, so much fun to ride on anything. You'll be tempted to throw your other bikes away. Good price.

Strength:

strong frame and the bike just felt stable in the air. the paint looks good. not enough space to list all! it is great

Weakness:

paint comes off nothing a re-spray wont fix, drop outs are evil on the non vertical version had to buy DMR wonder cups so could use mtb bb

this bike overall looks good feels good is good. it feels stable in the air, dose not flex on the bigger drops, fun and easy to throw around, not too heavy for crosscountry or trials, good for dirt jumping and dual slalam. this is a go every where bike

Strength:

sweet geometry, good size even for a 6'1" rider, cro-mo tubing

Weakness:

none that I've found

Nice bike, rides solid and clean and feels ridiculously stable in the air. Very 'flickable'. Feels great with a 24" wheel on the rear, just gives that subtle difference to the head angle teamed with 5" Zocchi's. Rides well everywhere, whether jibbing at the sk8 park or in the street, downhilling your local trails, slalom or a bit of hardcore XC action........this is the frame u want.......no 2 ways about it......this bike is the shiznit.......forget all these so-called "slalom" frames.......all hail the TRAILSTAAAAAR

This bike is the best wellrounded bike I have ever owned. I like trail ride, but I also do alot of urban assualt, and north shore style. That wa=hat I like about this bike is that I dont have to have 3 different bikes. I can do it all on this bike.

Strength:

Great name, great geometry, great strength, great colours, great guys who designed it etc. etc.

Weakness:

None... shouldn't complain about weight 'cos if u find it heavy go to the gym and lose some pounds of fat. Frame snapping... every frame will snap no matter what it's made of it's how long u prolong the use of the frame that determines how skillful a rider u are so go learn how to ride!!! hehe :P

Go out there and but one u won't be disappointed!!!!

Strength:

balanced geometry seems to feel right anywhere,flickable on the trails,nimble through singletrack,but somehow still stable when pointed downhill,(and by downhill,i mean 200ft deep, 60 degree steep slopes.this was the first bike ive ridden that just gives me so much confidence,iv done some stupid things on this frame,i killed a set of xt cranks 2 weeks after i bought them, but the frames taken it all.if u want a hardcore STEEL frame that will take anything u can throw at it, buy DMR

Weakness:

bloody crappy stickers chipped off far too quickly,seat-tube wasnt reamed out properly when i bought it.however, these two niggles dont really affect the performance. erm,if you're looking for something light,look somewhere else,

this frame is tough,has beautiful geometry and inspires confidence however you ride.i love mine

Strength:

Strength, looks, handling/geometry, adjustable chainstay length, 26/24in rr wheel compatible

Weakness:

Paint sucks, its kinda heavy. My built up bike weighs 36lbs now.

Well it took me a little longer than expected to get it set up the way I want but I finally did it and let me say that this bike rocks even more than it did before. It loves to be jumped and pointed downhill. I use this primarily for urban but it fairs pretty well on dirt too. Geometry is spot on with a 5 inch fork.

Strength:

great geometry with 5" travel fork
very strong
not too heavy
nice long top tube and short rear
adaptable to different setups "soft" steel feel yet fast acceleration
I.S.C.G. mounts for chain guide

Weakness:

paint isn't the best
some welds a bit cobby
poor finishing on chainguide mounts, etc.
no disc brake hose mounts (=zip ties)

It's a great frame at a great price, rides really good, just like a big bmx, has slightly soft feel of steel but not mushy so accelerates quick under power, works very well with 5" travel fork (fast handling), very adaptable : front mech or chainguide, 24" wheel or 26" wheel, v-brakes or disc brakes.

overall it's very good, not too heavy (2.5kgs) and rides great, they just need to work on the quality control as the paint is poor, the fittings like the I.S.C.G. mounts are rough, some of the welds are a bit cobby and there are no disc brake hose mounts which is lame!
