Strengths:    Build quality, component selection (Rohloff hub), well balanced unit in every regard

Weaknesses:    Carbon front fork precludes attaching forward racks / panniers. Rear light absolutely necessary!

Bottom Line:   
A brilliant combination of top quality parts in a well balanced commuter that also doubles as a decent touring rig. Rohloff hub enables this (relatively heavy at 28 pounds) bike to climb with the best of them, haul loads, and ride on (decent) dirt roads and trails. Quite an accomplishment for what was originally designed as a top dollar commuter.
