Strengths:    This frame is durable, comfortable, and provides plenty of resposive performance for recreational Singletrack as well as sport class XC racing. Frame I purchased was built as a custom ti frame to my body measurements and cockpit of resulting bike is incredible.

Weaknesses:    None for type of bike

Bottom Line:   
I never knew that having a custom bike could make such a difference in comfort and performance. I think the service from BRC in terms of suggesting the compnay and working on the final build was right on the money in terms of what I want for recreational and racing Singletrack. The speedy production and workmanship from Seven Cycles is wonderful as well as their communication.
