Strengths:    Light weight, nice feel of ti, best fork I have ever riden. I have been waiting for years for somebody to have the cajones to build a ti frame that will take a cannondale headshok. This is the nicest combonation since peanut-butter and jelly.

Weaknesses:    The price is the only thing that I have found with this bike. Welcome to titanium.

Bottom Line:   
This is the nicesest feeling bike I have ever been on. I am the manager of a bike, and get on just about everything there is, but this is the nicest thing yet! If you have the money to blow on the best frame you could ever get, this is it. Spend spend spend.
