Strengths:    No side to side movement. Smooth operation.

Weaknesses:    Flawless only for a few months. Only Thomson "can" service it.

Bottom Line:   
I owned it for about 8 months/700miles . I weigh about 165lbs. It was flawless for the first 4 months , no up and down play or side to side movement , smooth and quiet , takes a bit of patience to install. Around 450 miles started to sag about 1/8" ,no biggie.
6-7 months into it had about 1/4" up/down play.Sent it back to Thomson ,they "fixed" it and came back to me with more play and a bit of noise during rise. Now during a ride it has a pogostick action going on (and about 1/4"- 5/16"), however still no side to side play. Also if your cable ever breaks the default setting is at full extention so you can still pedal home if need to. If I had to do it again I'd buy smthing cheaper and buy couple nice tires with the leftover money perhaps.
