Strengths:    Very capable loaded tourer. Built for long, self-supported, gravel tours and it does that well.

Weaknesses:    As with most steel tourers, it is on the heavy side, but with any momentum, it loses that heavy feel.

Bottom Line:   
Bought a medium off the shelf because it met my criteria for a gravel capable tourer - complete chro-moly frame, disc brakes, triple crankset, wide tire capable, and reliable components. After several mixed road and trail multi-day tours, everything is still working and I'm very pleased with it. Mods so far have been limited to add-ons: Tubus chro-moly front and rear racks, 40mm Clement Kevlar tires, a Selle-Anatomica saddle, spd peddles and plastic splash shields. I have been surprised by its ability to handle single-track both fully and partially loaded. Its not my full-suspension mtb, but it has managed to get me and my gear where I'm going without fuss. Oh, and it is comfortable cruising at any speed on paved or unpaved roads.
