Strengths: affordable yet worth upgrading as you progress.
Weaknesses: Stock bike is just okay, upgrades were a must for me.
Bought it because it was cheap. As I progressed I upgraded to Hed Aero Bars, Zipp 606 (808 back 404 front) today I feel that I have a very cool bike. The frame is light, aero, and comfortable. It has helped me to win several age group races mainly because from olymic to 1/2 IM it provides a fast yet comfy ride that makes transition to run easier.
