Strengths:    Smooth on the downhills, shoots right up the inclines, Flows like warm butter on toast through the tight stuff...

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
Took it out to Fruita and Moab last week and could not have been happier with it. They say steel is real. I thought that the ride was less harsh then my old alumium trek was. I would buy this bike if you enjoy a quality ride with the best components. The Everything worked well. I'll let you know what happens when race season starts :)
