Strength:

Light, care free, responsive and COMFORTABLE for those all day rides. If you hose it off and wipe it down it will look brand new even after thousands of miles.

Weakness:

It is expensive to buy, but allocated over the years it is cheap. It is not the latest carbon fad bike. So if you want something flashy that looks like you just left the peloton this is not it. But if you want a bike to ride comfortably for years, check one out.

I have ridden this bike for 2 years at 3500 miles per year, mainly on weekly club rides. It is light, responsive and comfortable and a stunning classic looking bike. It is almost as responsive as my 1989 Klein Quantum Elite oversized aluminum tube crit bike, but it doesn't beat you up on each ride.
