Strengths: Very well built frame, comfortable riding position, lite, good quality parts, flickability.
Weaknesses: The stock tyres suck and depending how hard you plan to ride the bike the quick release front and rear hubs may not be tough enough. I also had a problem with the chain skipping over the rear cassette but it may have just been a defect.
This is an all around good bike. It performs well both on and off road. I would recommend it to anyone who does light to medium riding but it is not a bike for those who break frames.
