    Strength:

    Reynolds 853 steel, lightweight, short chainstays, price

    Weakness:

    Paint job could be better

    After 2 years of riding my frame I have no complains at all, it climbs like hell, good handling and acceletarion on fire roads and singletrack.

    I'm very pleased with my bike, as of matter of fact I'll buy another one very soon :-)

    Strength:

    Cheap. Definately stealth if that's what you're into. Frame alone about 4lbs even.

    Weakness:

    Paint. Not exactly top notch paint job. Only available in one color. No replacable dropout.

    No problems noted so far. It just works. Geometry and fit are good for me (6'2). Definately a good frame so far those looking for steel HT for VERY low $$. Unsure of quality of inside of headset or BB areas since I bought the frame with fork and BB installed. Welds look pretty decent too. Will update with any changes after 6 months.

    Unless something breaks or falls apart sometime soon, I'll give it 5 flamming burritos for value and 4 for overall. Paint could be better.

    Strength:

    Price, steel ride, light as a steel frame

    Weakness:

    Paint finish

    A lot more forgiving than AL frame, not as soft as soft tails(natually!). I cannot notice any BB area flex, but I am not a power pedaler with only about 155lb.
    As light as(could be lighter than) low range AL frame, my 16" frame weigh 1650g on a kitchen scale.
    Clear coat peeled off right out of the box, so did the Reynolds 853 decal. Welds are fine.
    Pleased with the ride. A good buy if you are looking for a good steel ride at a reasonable price, but not a brand.

    Strength:

    Good weight, nice angles, way cheap.

    Weakness:

    Paint was oversprayed into BB a bit

    Just what I hoped to get, medium long top tube, very
    friendly feel and man - cheap cheap. I got mine with
    no stickers for a full stealth look. Gave it a 4 cus
    of the overspray, otherwise five.

    Strength:

    Cheap, durable, good quality tubing & ritchey dropouts

    Weakness:

    poor paintjob, but if you're looking at your bike, you're probably not riding hard enough right then.

    This bike is extremely versatile and durable. Only complaint is that w/ a 75lbs trailer it can be a bit flexy, but great under all other circumstances (urban assault, epic singletrack, technical downhills, etc). Highly recommended, especially for the price.
