Strengths:    Responsiveness,lightness and component spec.

Weaknesses:    stiffness,but that's ok with me.Didn't come with the 46 chain wheel it was suposse to come with stock(came with 50T)

Bottom Line:   
Stiff,resonsive,light and pretty bike too. Very responsive,I cannot flex this thing going up some of the hardest climb here in my area. 18lbs stock light for stock bike.Took it a few times offroad,she's a rocket. But it can be too stiff on sections,but it's the price I have to pay for a fast feeling bike.Fat tubes and downtube mounted cables makes shouldering a little bit different(less natural for me) compared to my former IF bike.My goal is to make this lighter by next season and practice shouldering her faster.Shimano wheels that came with it after truing it after break in is holding straight.
