Strength:

Good components (as far as I know) for the price. You get good (albeit nothing fancy) brakes, good derailer(deore), good frame, I haven't noticed bottoming out the front suspension yet, in pretty rough stuff... I have ridden the Giant Boulder (admittedly a bit cheaper); the suspension bottoms out on that one from dropping off a small curb on the hardest setting. I have not had any problems that obvious with the components on this bike; In short, they are solid inexpensive parts.

Weakness:

Nothing for the price point to my knowledge. The frame seems to be designed for smaller riders, the seat may be small for some people; a test ride would easily determine if the bike's setup is good for the individual.

My first serious bike purchase, I am extremely happy with it. There has been no major maintenance issue so far. I have been downhilling with rocks and stuff that generally you don't want around bikes from which you desire longevity, but haven't had any problems! The value is great, the bike is great for the price, nothing fancy.

Strength:

frame, total pkg. good component pkg for the price range and good weight. feels lighter than it is when riding, good balance.

Weakness:

bent rear "Ritchey" rim on first serious day of riding. bike shop stiffend the spokes and i went "urban" riding the next day and had no problem with the rim. grips suck. very slippery with a little sweat. easy change. a few upgrades and this bike is ready to race!

I love this bike so far! it feels super light and is balanced beautifully. on the trail or in the city it takes off smooth and lands with confidence. the only things i will change right away are the grips and maybe a little stronger rear wheel. Great bike to start with or a good intermediate price for a quality ride with minimal upgrades needed, but is disc brake compatible and ready to rule the trail.
