Date Reviewed: September 26, 2010

Strengths:    LIGHT, agile, well packaged. nice paint

Weaknesses:    As an 820 it came with sram cassette(now a set of shuriken) and octalink crank(now a chain tool)

Bottom Line:   
Replaced the factory wheels with Mavic crosslines with Maxxis hookworms and bolted on Shimano m770 cassette hooked to Sram S1000 crank with Shimano HG93 chain. Upgrade started after bending the rear qr and putting a whoop in the wheel. Replaced qr's with Titaniums from Jet Black and Then got a set of hookworms cheap. This made it obvious that wheels weren't quite up to scratch, so voila, one very bulletproof street marauder. Point being, the frame made this entirely worthwhile. I have had a look at pretty much everything available this year and am very happy with my choice.

Strengths:    nice ride, good component group, LIGHT

Weaknesses:    standard fork is a bit weak for my 210 lbs

Bottom Line:   
i've really enjoyed this bike on a multiday trip along old timber roads of Sakhalin island in the Russian Far East, the fork was a bit weak for my weight, and felt pretty stiff running down rocky trails (my friend at 160 lbs doesn't have this problem).. most positive impression though was when I had to carry the bike 3000' up climbing to one of the ridges along our route, it FELT so light...

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for all around use. Going to go on a 170 mile bike ride with and well see what happens next to the bike.
