    Strengths:    Cost..........easily shifts with minimal troubles.

    Weaknesses:    I have had a few chain jumps........I think it was from the bike being new and just needing to be fine tuned by shop.

    Bottom Line:   
    Nice upgrade from my other FD on my other Bike which was a Sora. Shifts easy with hardly any chain noise from making contact.
