Strengths:    Brakes (Magura HS33), Handling, Shifting (SRAM 9.0)

Weaknesses:    Front wheel interferes with pedals in certain orientations.

Bottom Line:   
This is actually an ST27 Rocket as opposed to a GL63 setup. The difference is a cassette hub in the rear rather than the 3-speed hub. It's lighter and ther's less rolling resistance. This bike does a round trip of about 5 miles per day in all weather. It also doubles as my road workout bike when I'm not out on the tandem with my wife. I have had zero mechanical or cosmetic problems in 1500 miles of riding this bike. It is durable, sporty, and a pleasure to ride. I am a converted wedgie rider. This was my first recumbent. It took about 6 weeks of commuting to get really comfortable on the bike. Now I can track stand on it.
