Strengths:    Stiff
Good Paint
Good design
%100 made in italy

Weaknesses:    No integrated front brake housing stop like the ridley, have to use one that goes on the steerer tube.

Bottom Line:   
Super stiff and comfortable frame. Ive raced it both cross, and in road/crit races. The 2013 frame i have, has the top tube/seattube designed for comfortable carry during cross racing. Integrated rear brake housing stop on the frame makes it easy to route the cable. All the tubes are really beefy, and the frame just looks great. Not to say its one of the only Italian manufacturers still make frames %100 in Italy, unlike Colnago, pinarello, DeRosa as far as i know.
