Strengths:    
great around town bike. use mine to ride back and forth to school. about 15 min. ride. great value. trek 800's seemed to flimsy, by comparison.


Weaknesses:    
no suspension. but thats par for the course at this price (220ish).


Bottom Line:   
this was the best, least expensive, well built, bike i could find. yeah, if you want to spend a little more (about 40 bucks) you can get front suspension. but i needed to have enough headroom to buy extras ie. lock, bottle and cage, pump, rear rack, and tire linners, dont forget the linners! mr tuffy has saved me alot of flat changin'.

The Eddieman is a lazy man! HaHo!
