Strengths:    solid as a rock. Handles and accelerates great.

Weaknesses:    weight.
But given the low price, not a issue for me. Given I am 10 or 15 pounds more than I could be, a pound or 2 on the frame is not so much.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this frame to put together a "spare" bike. Was not expecting too much considering it is straight guage aluminum. Very pleasantly surprised. Frame is staff as anything, and was welded and finished as goos =d as anything I have seen. Handles great. Once I learned to let a few pounds of air out of tires went to 105 from 115, and I am a 195 pounder)the bike rode great. Would definitely get a higher end Fort frame,
