Strengths:    i love it i shifts awesome and i had a 2 ring crankset and did perfect with that and now im back to a 3 ring and it does the job better then i thought it would

Weaknesses:    i dont think there is any1

Bottom Line:   
i love it it works well with 2rings or 3 rings and shifts right when you tell it to! ohh and look around i dont know why but hone products are really cheap and better then the slx products like my crankset was 150 bucks and i got it for 80 so there good prices for it too
