Strengths:    Good price, good performance with light to medium load

Weaknesses:    Doesn't carry heavy load well.

Bottom Line:   
Mine is an older model, so it may have improved since. At first, I used it as a commuter bike and it handled very well. When I tried to use it touring with a good load front and back, I was disapointed to feel a lot of speed wobble that made it even scary above 30 km/h.

Strengths:    Solid frame and comfortable geometry.

Weaknesses:    Over sized gearing. I had to replace the middle and small chainrings because they were way too big for hauling heavy loads even up medium grades let alone the Rockies.

Bottom Line:   
Completed my first cross-Canada tour with it. Once I had it set up right, it performed amazingly well. The only problem I had was the rear rim developed stress cracks at a few spoke holes. With the suspension seat post the ride was incredibly smooth. The frame held up perfectly under a large load (80 lbs or so).
I have also ridden a 300km Randonneur with it with no problem being in the saddle for 12 hours.

Favorite Ride:   X-Canada tour 2004

Similar Products Used:   I also owned a 2001 Devinci Silverstone racing bike.

Strengths:    Shifting is close to perfect. Rear D smooth. Lightweight and sturdy. Love the ride. Great looking. Seems very well made.

Weaknesses:    Front D has taken some time to get working properly

Bottom Line:   
2008 Caribou 2: This is my dream bike. Can't get enough of it. Purchased on sale and specs/components match the 09 model exactly except for seat and handle bar tape. Added carrier, fenders, clip on /combo pedals.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for commuting. Also good for short trips (less than 100 km).
SHimano XT deraillleur is very smooth. I"m surprised at the speed I can reach with this type of bike just a few km/hr less than my road bike (Argon 18)
I put regular pedals instead of clip-ons -- mistake.
