Strengths:    Very durable frame. very comfortable bike to ride. Amazing all around bike for being under 600 bucks.

Weaknesses:    heavy, but what do expect for a bike tat is under 600 dollars. try to find a bike that has the same quality of parts and for the same price. you wont be able to.

Bottom Line:   
great bike for the price. very solid. if you dont mind a bike that will weigh in just under 35 lbs get it you wont regret it.
