Strengths:    You want disc brakes you got em! Multiple hookups for front/rear racks, front/rear fenders, and 3 water bottle hookups (that I've found so far). Cromoly steel flattens out the road. Strength, is the name of the disc trucker game.

Weaknesses:    I'll have to keep looking.

Bottom Line:   
Bought the Disc Trucker as a complete bicycle Through my local bicycle shop, directly from
Surly. Shipped super fast (2 business days), but put my bicycle guy to the test putting it together. Also if you order the complete bike you will have to purchase your own pedals. I did not recieve a set with the bike an apparently surly sends it with no pedals so the rider can choose their preference.. Must say I am happy to be riding the disc trucker it looks, feels, rides, and is so reliable for any riding task you throw at it. Commuting to work, recreational riding, running errands (eventually some tours once the man gives me some time off) have all never been so comfortable and fun. This bike offers such a smooth/versatile ride, my first time riding felt like a whole new cycling world opening up. If you are looking for a bicycle you can rely on to get the job done this is it. P.s. a lot of surly lht riders are crazy about brooks saddles (which seem very nice, but also very expensive) the disc trucker came with a Wilderness trail bikes sts seat and it is a quality saddle. Just break it in for a couple hundred miles(like any other good saddle) and you will have no regrets.
