Strengths:    Racks are awesome. The Alivio componants work just as good as my Fuji with XT at more than half the price. The trekking bars offer great hand positions.

Weaknesses:    The foam grip tape stuff on the bars suck. Replace with cork bar tape. Although not a weakness the rims are deep dish with scharder ports, spo you need tubes with extended scharder stems. Hard to find in 26" at LBS. Needed to order for spares, so I got four.

Bottom Line:   
I have had the Trans Sport now for over a year and it has handled everything I have rode it on flawless. I use it for city commuting, rail trails, general riding. The racks hold a ton of stuff. The stock seat is very good but will be replaced by a Brooks Flyer this winter. I changed out the tires to Bontrager Comfort. This is going to be my ride on the Erie Canal Trail ride(400+ miles).
