Strengths:    Amazing XC frame, beautifully crafted by hand and finished with an awesome one-off paint job. The combination of geometry and frame stiffness is confidence inspiring and produces great handling. Just awesome!

Weaknesses:    There are only two weaknesses I can think of, price & paint quality. Price you should be able to live with, as the Dekerf really is out of this world, but the issue with the paint is a problem. The issue is that the paint rubs off far too easily. This complaint has been common with Dekerf bikes as long as I can remember, so word of advice, if you are going to order a Dekerf frame, make sure you specify that you want extra coats of paint and lacquer, otherwise you will be disappointed.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is absolutely amazing to ride to the point where it makes you feel honoured to own it, and the nice thing is that you know you'll keep and ride it forever. If you can, get one!
