Strengths:    durability and versatility

Weaknesses:    weight, but what do you expect for 400.00

Bottom Line:   
Giant doesn't show an 01 model and the last I heard was the model was discontinued in 95. Bought mine in 93, seems like no matter what the frame wouldn't be destroyed, trust me I've tried. This bike saw service first for road racing before I was really into the sport, geomitry is ok for the purpose but not ideal, kind of a neutral geomitry since it's not great for loaded touring. This bike has since done a tour of europe through 6 countries and last year got me a 4th place finish in my first cyclocross race. This year it hade canti brazeons added for further cyclocross raceing where the geomitry and weight seem perfect. Had the brake bridge moved when the canti's were installed and as a result can use up to a size 700x42 tire. As a result of this bikes versitility and inability to be destroyed by normal means I have no complaints and have fully gotten my money out of it.
