Strengths:    Light weight, easy to assemble, not much tunning needed, bikedirect $499, fast, sturdy for a man over 210lbs, disc breaks!!!, flat black easy to touch up. handle bar adjustment.

Weaknesses:    toe clips that came with it are junk, seat is a little hard

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for $499, Its a road bike that allows you to sit upright. Not for off road at all not even smooth trails. Nice components easy to assemble if you have a bike rack if not take it to a shop. Not much tunning needed right out of the box. I am very happy with my purchase. I used to work at a high end bike shop in the early 90's so I know a little about bikes. This bike would have run about $700 back then.
