Strengths:    Great Frame, Reynolds 853. Geometry. Price. Ionic's people.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I bought the Steelhead as a frame only.
This bike is soooo sweet. The Reynolds 853 frame is light for steel and very compliant. It won't beat you up on the rough stuff. I really like the geometry of the bike. It has a long top tube which allows me to use a short stem. It climbs well without the front end wandering.
The 2000 LX stuff is really nice also. The crankset is extremely light and stiff and won't drain your wallet.
I got the frame for $400 and it's well worth 3X that much.
This would make a great bike for the serious racer because of it's ride characteristics and for the weekend warrior because of the price.
I definately recommend this bike. Call IONIC NOW!! You will not regret it.
