Strengths:    Affordable
Lightweight (relatively)
Nice ride
Subtle (theft-deterrent)


Weaknesses:    No stock fixed cog
Strange handlebars
Wheels could be lighter
Brakes are not the best


Bottom Line:   
I have put a few hundred miles on this bike and am satisfied overall. Recently, I installed a fixed cog on the flip-flop hub with the same gear ratio. There were two things that I thought I would change immediately but have since reconsidered. The handlebars are strangely bowed out and the tires are fairly wide. I have gotten used to the handlebars over a matter or weeks and I rarely need to inflate the tires for cruising around town because they hold so much air. There are mounting points for a rear wheel fender.
