Strengths:    Durability, Good quality ride, just plain fun!
Classic and modern combination with the skinny tubes and sloping geometry.

Weaknesses:    This wasn't a weakness when I bough the bike, but 13 years later, it's a little hard to keep pace with the modern components given the 1 1/8" straight head tube, threaded BB, but its those reasons that have me finally pondering another bike now.
Steering is on the quick side. great for crits and sprint riding, if i did that. A little toe overlap, but i do wear size 14 shoes...

Bottom Line:   
after about 140,000 kms, I think I know this bike pretty well. I love the geometry for climbing, but it is a little hefty. Not terrible, my 58cm frame is at 19.0 lbs (just weighed it today) with pedals, cages, computer, etc.
It's a good bike for long rides, centuries, fondos, etc. It's a great bike for less then perfect roads.
The rear has plenty of stiffness for transferring power while seated, but it won't beat you up either.
I run mine with a lot of drop, so it can be set up plenty aggressive, too.
Great bike!

Strengths:    Smooth ride, strong frame. Columbus Thermacrom.

Weaknesses:    Weight? Geometry is a bit tight, so I get some toe overlap with the front wheel

Bottom Line:   
No only is the bike lively and smooth, but it has taken a beating and kept going as well. Even after head tube repair the bike feels like new. The frame does an amazing job of soaking up expansion joints and other rough stuff on the road. Comfortable enough for a century and still enough bike for the fast training rides.

Strengths:    comfortable ride- trite, but steel is real- wholly different from alum, carbon, ti. solid and plush.

Weaknesses:    heavy- but probably b/c i've kept it stock.

Bottom Line:   
great all-around bike. let's face it most of us don't race, so why pay the price ($ and comfort) to get technology you'll never use?

this bike is all i'll ever need- though i have geeked out and spent too much money on a "race bike". i strangely enjoy riding this bike though- everything just works and looks as it should. full ultegra setup- 9sp, but still does the trick. the WH540 wheels i am not crazy about, (i hate that they look so aero fake on a cool retro looking bike like this), but hey they work.

if you can find one, go buy it- and avoid paying an arm and a leg from the higher-end builders.
