Strengths:    Price, Easton tubing.

Weaknesses:    Bright red/white paint. People think I'm an HA on this thing.

Bottom Line:   
I picked up the Mtn. Cycle Virture from CBO on a closeout (read blowout). The deal couldn't be passed up. The frame is all Easton Elite tubing, with a Kinesis fork. I love this bike. I also have an Indy Fab Crown Jewel (steel) and this is yin to the IF's yang. Totally different feel and the power transfer is killer. I especially like the Easton carbon "e-stays." These are the first generation of Easton's highly respected stay tubing. I even contacted Easton CS and they sent me an extra hanger, since Mtn. Cycle is no longer in the road game. If you can find one of these frames, don't pass it by. It makes for a phenom. "beater" road bike, and I routinely keep up with my BMC/LOOK riding buddies. Not quite as comfortable as the IF, but I'm loving it the same.
