Strengths:    It's fast
Build quality
Nimble handling

Weaknesses:    Brake levers are a bit cheesy.
Upgrade tires, if your performance oriented.

Bottom Line:   
Fast,fast,fast! Found this bike online and took the chance buying it sight-unseen. Overall build quality is great, components aren't bad, can't really complain for a bike that weighs just over 20 lbs(56cm), and the MSRP is a lot cheaper than other brands that are comperably equipped. Although I did modify it slightly by swapping out the stem and bars for a newer Easton stem and carbon bars along with stubby bar ends and added a 53/39 105 crankset. What a difference. Not only does the bike look better, but performance is better also. Next, will be tire upgrade to 23 or 25's instead of the 28's. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the purchase and now that the bike has had a diet (19.3 lbs), it's even better. If your in the market for a flat bar road bike, the only stop you need to make is at your local Felt dealer.
