Strengths:    well so far the bike is pretty strong. only problem i had with it was the guy at the shop didn't tighten the bolts enough for the handle bars and so when i went over a curb they came loose and i flipped over the bars and broke the break handle but the guy was pretty nice and gave me a new break handle and put it on for free so that was cool
but other than that it has good breaks, tires, rims seat and bars


Weaknesses:    well i think for $240+ u should get steel pedals but other than that it has no weaknesses

Bottom Line:   
its a really good bike i like it my friends like it and i think u will like it

Strengths:    Near indestructible, looks better in person!

Weaknesses:    Weak drivetrain

Bottom Line:   
I love this bike. It has a very solid feel to it. It is a heavy ride but I don't mind. Since changing out drive-train components it is vastly improved. I have a set of DK sealed hubs that I need to have laced to some Weinman rims. I need to get some new 990's and maybe some new bars. Came with a threadless headset so that stays. As much as I've dumped into this thing thus far I probably could have gotten a much higher end bike but this one is MINE. I got it at a good price so all the additions have been parts that I wanted.
