Strengths:    Reynolds 853
Bomb-proof welds

Weaknesses:    Ummm...

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely the best bike I have owned. The geometry is perfect and the steel frame is Soooo strong. The graphics are even better :) ! In fact, the frame is only about 3/4 of a pound heavier than the Ti Lucky Strike if the same size. Fortunately for me...I bought the LAST one of these babies that they had at the factory. So, good luck finding them unless they make them again. I think they only had a 2-year run. I heard that Airborne quit making them 'cuz they were becoming known 'only' as a Ti-bike maker...and no one knew of the Black Widow...too bad for them, GOOD for ME :)! A big 10 flamers for this bike.
