Strengths:    Just fits
Looks great

Weaknesses:    Weight? Rust? Too inexpensive?

Bottom Line:   
I am new to road biking and got this bike assembled and fit at a local bike shop. I am extremely happy with the cycle which runs smoothly and speedily and has not caused me any pain (including at rides >100km).
