Strengths:    Very strong frame - no worse for the wear after crashing
Seems to be quite stiff and responsive
Fantastic paint job
Comfortable, not a jarring frame (compared to other aluminum frames)

Weaknesses:    A bit too compact - foot/front tire overlap as well as inability to have a second waterbottle.

Bottom Line:   
I am going to give this a 4 star rating, with a 5 for value.
The Road Alex is an excellent frame. Lightweight, stiff, and responsive. Like most all-aluminum frames, it is not the most comfortable for a long ride, but this IS better than other all-aluminum frames I have ridden.
Fort has some fantastic European-made frames for a great price. I am pleased with this purchase and may move up-the-Fort-ladder for next year to one of their more premiere frames.
