a Cross Country Rider

Strengths: Frame swap with bike shop. Very light frame, with most of the features I like, oversize Scandium, chainstay bridge, Breezer dropouts. Nice paint job. A real sub 3lbs. Stiff climber, yet comfortable descender, rides and handles well.
Weaknesses: Down tube, BB cable routing. Guess the design follows 'euro roadie' feedback. Some maintenance issues here. Also no disc mount option.
Lightweight! Good handling, tracking, etc. Only letdown is the cable routing, and not so important (to some) lack of disc brake option.
