Strengths:    Very light weight , handles like it's on rails , limited amount , fun to ride

Weaknesses:    The fenders can be noisy(no biggy)can't really see any others , this bike is what it is. Single speed fun bike.

Bottom Line:   
First of all the bike handles great,tight turns,seems to be real solid and real light.Fake wooden fenders and strange boom-a-rang handle bars kinda weird but different and cool all at the same time.I really enjoy riding the bike however I'm finding out how spoiled to being able to shift gears I am. Your not going to jump off the line with this bike and when the wind is against you you'll feel the burn,I commute everyday about 12 miles and then ride this bike on the weekends .It's a very fun bike and you WILL build a few muscles in the process.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This is a great bike by it's looks and style as far the geometry is awesome I love the bars however the stem had to be changed in lenght by 20mm from 90 to a 110 to increase the cockpit area and also the brakes were removed since I use as a fixie only and as what I like to call my rain bike since is always ridden when the roads are wet great fenders also changed the saddle and grips for a brooks leather seat and leather grip to match the brown fenders. What a great trainig bike.

Strengths:    The price was spot on for a single speed/fixie (it comes ready to set up as both) that is just oozing with style. Specialized did not miss any details from the matching green hubs and rims, the pho wood fenders, to the green coffee mug holder on the handle bars. Its fast and fun.

Weaknesses:    The geometry is really set up for this thing to be town bike in the flatlands. It makes it harder to stand up and sprint for the stop lights, or get tucked when riding into a head wind.

Bottom Line:   
This is a fun bike with upright seated position with a comfortable beach cruizeresque style ride, except much faster. Low rake angle on the head tube makes it very "responsive". It is fast and I am planning on making some switches to the bars to get my riding position closer to that of a road bike, and less like a cruiser.
