Strengths: Lightweight frame, smooth ride, and good transfer of power.
Weaknesses: The only two colors I've seen are white and yellow.
I absolutely love this bike!
It's a kinesium frame with carbon fiber seat stays and fork. They could have a little bit better selection as far as color goes, but I am very pleased with it and plan to buy another in a couple years.
I purchased the frameset off of eBay for $300 (it had a chip in the paint) and built the bike myself. So this review is only of the frameset, not the rest of the bike.
I've ridden mtn bikes for quite some time and finally decided to build a road bike. I test rode several road bikes, including a Cannondale with a CAAD 7 frame that IMHO is very similar to the Iron Horse Victory frame.
I can't speak for the rest of the components, but this frameset is a great deal for the money.
All of the other Iron Horse road bike owners I've met had nothing but positive things to say.

Holy crap what a wanker. Pays lip service to how bad the USADA file was, but then HAS to go ahead and make it about him and indirectly insinuate that we shouldn't worry about the past but focus on the future.
