Strengths:    Excellent construction, Racey geometry, light as a feather, climbs like a monkey and the welds are pure artwork

Weaknesses:    A tad expensive but well worth it.

Bottom Line:   
After much researh and evaluation I purchased this bike from Ibis. I looked at a number of other mid-range and hi end bikes and was trying to convince myself that I didn't need a Ti bike. However I made the mistake of getting on the MaiTi. Ever since then I've been riding hard (30-40 mi's at a time) 3-4 times a week over all types of terrain-racey singletrack, rocky fire road, muddy trail, etc. This bike performs lik a champ. Climbs like a dream, corners beautifully and downhills in amazing fashion. As previously mentioned the construction is amazing with the welds being so clean and smooth that it truly is beautiful. Yea it was pricy but worth every penny. Never mind I'l be eating gruel for the next 2 years to make up for the price. I love this bike!
