Strengths: The quality of the frame is great, the welds are first rate and the graphics are very attractive. The ride is very smooth, better than the steel bike she has been riding for 20 years.
Weaknesses: The frame should have a braze on front derailleur tab as the front derailleur clamp ends up under the rear watter bottle cage.

1/2 hr into my ride, a wasp/bee decides that my mouth would be a nice place to visit.
I spat him out a bit too late and ended up getting stung on my tongue.
It didn't feel too bad in the beginning but I decided to turn back anyway. I had been stung by a bunch of bees on the forehead as a kid a ... Read More »
