Strengths:    Merckx name. Indestructible. Built like a tank. 27.2 seatpost.

Weaknesses:    Rides like a tank. Weighs as much. Too tall a seat tube for cross. Italian bb.

Bottom Line:   
Cross bike built like a tank. Tubes too thick to ding. Nice high (cross norm) bb and quick steering. The 56 is c to c all around- means the seat collar is too high for me to run enough seatpost to tame the very stiff ride. May ride better with someone heavier than my 150 pounds.

Strengths:    A great all around bike for me. A good choice if you're looking for an all in one ride.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy for some maybe.

Bottom Line:   
Very strong bike. I'm a big guy and this thing handles me no problem. I use it for road riding, light off roading and commuting.
