Strength:

Solid, Solid, Solid. Still can't feel any flex, and I have raced this thing over 100 times. I have even gotten into a few crashes, but again, the frame has stood up very well!

Weakness:

The front derailleur guide around the bottom bracket is a problem on older models. Look for the frames that have the "noodle" to guide the wire.

I didn't see any reviews, so I thought I would throw my .02 in. I have had my 200 SCI since 1996, but the reviews don't go back that far. I have logged over 80,000 miles on this frame, through many, many, wheel sets and components have come and gone but the frame still stands. I have bought multiple "racers" during that time, but always come back to this bike between new bike purchases and for a lot of training. I cannot say enough good things about this bike. The design of the frame tubing is the same as many carbon's today! In my opinion, this bike will be one of the classics in years to come for carbon bikes. All those that say carbon doesn't last are crazy- I have not babied this bike at all and it is still great.
