Weaknesses: mediocre components and geometry. Design is not as advertised, this website is the only one that has the accurate design, K2 does not.
It took over 40 days of them telling the store owner that they had shipped it and "it will be there Tuesday". When it finally came it was damaged - scratches and marks. Shock absorption was lacking, even after warm-up. Geometry seems off compared to other women's specific bikes that I demoed, I was hunched over as if the top tube was too long for the rest of the frame. The store owner won't even keep it as a demo. My feeling, don't waste your money. I would rather invest in the pepto pink Gary Fisher, the Santa Cruz Juliana or non-women's specific Santa Cruz blur.
