Strengths:    Price. I still have not seen a comparable spec at this price. It generally keeps up with, and does not feel out of place, on group rides where most of the bikes cost a lot more.

Weaknesses:    I did not like the seat, and changed it out. I put a pair of Shimano SPD pedals on it. After a year, there was an issue with the rim on the front Mavic wheel (noise/broken tab in the rim) that was taken care of by Sette at no cost, even for shipping.

Bottom Line:   
I've had this bike for over a year, have about 3500 miles on it, with only one minor problem, that was repaired for free under warranty. It corners well for me, but feels a tad squirrelier in a straight line (not a problem), than previous bikes, maybe due to a different head angle or little more foreward positioning. Good balance of stiffness/power transfer vs compliance/smooth ride. The finish had held up very well. The next step up from entry level road bikes.
