Great balance between descender and climber. Stable and fearless on the DHs and at high speeds; great traction on the technical uphills. Though it is a 2007, the top tube and reach are long enough to give a good center.
Really none. Slightly heavy (33 lbs) for today's standards (2015), but you don't know it while riding. And that includes the pedals, AM tires, stout rims, a beefy older Fox 36 Talus front fork and coil rear shock. So it could be set up a lot lighter, and I really don't think weight is a con.
Great all arounder and a true all mountain bike. I cannot imagine ever selling this bike.
