Strengths:    Very Responsive, dampening, nice-looking.
Direct power transfer to the wheels while climbing. React fast in accelerating.

Weaknesses:    I don't see another same ASTRA on the road....

Bottom Line:   
Great frame! Just give the bike power and it will response to all of them on the wheels. The smoothness saves me a lot of energy and makes my ride longer. I jump on the pedals and instantly feel this bike is really a solid performer. This frame is also very light and stiff in climbing. It has great stability when you are in series of short corners when descending and gives me a lot of confidence. I cannot find out any weakness from it. The only thing I have to say is that I ride too much after I have it, and my legs get too much fatigue...My doctor said I need to get some rest!
