Strengths: Light, seems fast to me but it's the first road bike I've ever had so that might not count. Not really experience enough to go into detail but I know I like it.
Weaknesses: The seat is not comfortable at all. I did a century run and paid for it when I was finished. I did notice after reading other reviews that the breaks are hard. But I’m not really experience enough to go into detail.
I decided I was done riding the treadmill or jogging on the streets because I didn’t want to end up with bad knees. I rode a Gary Fisher (hybrid) for a month and decided I wanted to go faster and ride much longer distance. This is my first rode bike and I was amazed how fast and light it was. Two weeks after having it, I did century run 101 miles @ 14.1 mph. Yes I know it’s slow but I had not rode it past 10 miles before I did that.
