    Strengths:    Light. Painted the color that I wanted. Steel. Ritchey dropouts are way cool.

    Weaknesses:    Ritchey dropouts just barely fit my Cycleops trainer. 1" headtube.

    Bottom Line:   
    Even though it has a 1" headtube, it fits me like a glove. I'll just have to keep rebuilding that fork as long as I have the bike, or go to a rigid fork.

    Strengths:    Lightweight; strong

    Weaknesses:    none really-still trying to get used to the yellow paint....

    Bottom Line:   
    Very happy with the bike so far. Great for all around/slightly aggressive rides. I'll need a full-suspension for steep drops, though. I learned the hard way. The bike handles very well, is strong and light. Worth every penny.
