No weak points other than if you go with the sortie as least get the fox spec at the minimum. One of my co workers got the 2012 sortie 1 and ended up dishing out more $ for a better fork. The mission is hard to beat at just under 2k. That's what I'd buy if it was my first new bike. Right now I'm looking at the scapegoat frame since I've been riding a lot of park, but my M2 just keeps getting it.
Unfortunately there aren't any close dealers of DB around here so sizing one might be hard. At 5'11" with an average frame (no short legs, long arms, etc) I'm thinking a Large 19" would be the size for me. I'm coming off a specialized hardrock 19"
I ride a 17" mission with a 60mm stem and wide bars right now. I have long arms and legs with a short trunk. Climbing steeps can be cramped, but I usually stand in that situation. I do plan to go with a Large 19" frame with the 'goat and a 50mm stem this time around.
