Strengths:    Strong, stiff, looks

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I thought I had the regular '04 Alpha Drive's (Not E) which got poor reviews and was wondering why they haven't broke with all the abuse I've given these with 6'+ to flat drops, smacking them on rocks and torquing my 200+ #'s uphill. I've got the ones with the silver middle chainring, the Alpha Drive E version. I thought for sure they would've broke by now but nope. They've never loosened or made any sounds whatsoever and look good too. If your looking to build a strong bike for cheap get these. They can be had for as little as $50 bucks.
