Strengths:    Price. I don't think any new road bike can be that cheap.

Tires. Schwalbe Blizzard comes standard and they are Kevlar-claded. Nice, durable dry weather tires.

Steel fork. If you don't mind the weight, steel fork offers very good ride and unquestionable durability.

Saddle. Very serviceable saddle. Comfortable WITH BIKE SHORTS.

Braze-ons. Braze-ons are there for front and rear racks.

Weaknesses:    Pedals. It's a cheap plastic crap with non-removable toe-clips. I have to buy a new pair of pedals.

Drivetrain. The 8-speed drivetrain is rather antiquated and the Sora brifters need frequent adjustment to make it work. Overall, the entire drivetrain is as cheap as you can put on a road bike.

Bottom Line:   
I bought it at clearance at Performance Bike at Charlotte. I joined the Team Performance so I got 10% cash back. Account for that, my out-the-door price is $412.55. I also recommend Performance Bike at Charlotte, their people are top notch.
