Strengths:    Lightweight, smooth ride (think Cadillac!), whisper quiet on pavement, very durable for moderate offroad riding, very customizable.

Weaknesses:    Low end components. But ya buy the Cannondale frame, right?

Bottom Line:   
I have a '96 H300 and absolutely love it! I sold my road bike cuz I was riding the Cannondale more. I've used it for urban commuting (26 mile roundtrip), charity rides (i.e. MS150) and general fitness riding up to 35 miles. I plan to do a century with her in about 6 months. I've added SPD clipless pedals, Girvin suspension stem, carbon fiber seatpost, flat aluminum handlebar with bar-ends, Kenda Kwest tires and Nashbar TRX saddle.

Strengths:    Light wieght; handling; ease of driving; reputation; killer frame; looks; overall quality; brakes.

Weaknesses:    Crappy OEM seat; some components are not as good as what one might get from other manufacturers at a similar price.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is great. Everybody told me to get a mountain bike but my research said that for the city, commuting and recreational riding, a hybrid was the bike for me. This thing really hits the spot. It takes potholes and bad roads like they're nothing; climbs hills with ease, has a nice ride, is very stable and very easy to handle. Since I have to lug it up some steps to get it into my house, its light wieght (as compared to the Giant Farrago and others) makes it easy to get out and put away.

I may change a few components over time as I would like to trim even more wieght; I don't need the suspension seatpost and the adjustable stem and steel handlebars seem to be heavier than they need to be; but overall I love this bike.

I really wanted a road bike but knew I wouldn't do any serious roadbiking and also knew a RB couldn't handle the abuse dished out by urban riding, so Hybrid was the best choice. Anybody who's not going to take their bike to the woods and is riding mostly in the city or on paved roads should check this bike out. If I had a few more bux I would have gotten an H400; but this is similar save for a few components. I can't imagine being as happy in my situation) with a mountain bike.

BTW; I know this is entry was labeled 1999; but mine is a 2000 model FWIW.
