Strengths:    Light weight, look good

Weaknesses:    With less than 200 km on them, the rear wheel is no longer straight enough to ride.

Bottom Line:   
I just purchased this bike here in Kunshan. Although the mountain biking is limited in here, the short travel and light weight are perfect for riding the rough roads or city riding. I love this bike. I'm a big guy, 6'-1" and 190 lbs. With only 200 km of riding, I've bunny hopped a couple of speed bumps and ridden off a curb here and there. Now the rear wheel wiggles more than a hooker's ass on Friday night. It needs some serious straightening. I know it's a racing wheelset, but I'm not even riding off road! Anything designed for off road use should easily handle the riding I've done without trouble.
