Strength:

Good spec in the $ range. Rides well and looks good too. Ultegra R derailleur is a nice touch.

Weakness:

Avid Shorty 4's because they squeal regardless of toe in. 105 front shifter is a bit tempermental; when it dies it will be Ultegra or 1x10.

It has been awhile since I had a bike to do everything on. I race it, I ride the local park, commute, pick up my daughter with the Burley. This bike does it all very well and looks really sharp! In the dirt it handles very well in the technical climbs, fast decents, and single track. As a beginner CX racer I find it meets my needs very well and will for a long time. I wanted a bike to race but also use for long adventure type rides between various parks and dirt roads and this one fit the bill. Typical to most CX bikes it has no disc brake tabs, not a positive or negative to me but keeps it race legal for UCI. It is spec'd with Truvativ Elita cranks now(not Ritcheys.
