Strengths: tracks well, hauls a lot of gear over singletrack. drybag works great. Simple design. did i mention it hauls a lot of gear? enough for 10 days backcountry riding.
Weaknesses: needs a better fender with more coverage, Ive used this in the rain on dirt roads and it makes a mess, Also seems like it would be easy to make a fender for the front fork to wrap up the bike wheel to prevent spray. there are already tabs welded on the front fork, but no reason why.
Fun, easy to ride up even super steep grades, tracks well but needs more wrap around fender coverage for wet weather, both front and back.
