    Strengths:    cheap?

    Weaknesses:    bottom feeder, not smooth,

    Bottom Line:   
    For general riding the Soras are ok although not very smooth and cannot keep-up a good spin. I've recently bought myself a winter bike, a nice red Bianchi late 80's vintage in one of the used bike shops I sometimes visit. The wheels had the older spec 105's. Needless to say these old hubs puts the Sor-ass to shame. The spin up is very fluid and they seem to build-up so much momentum and keep it for a longtime. The Sor-ass can only dream of this performance. I'm kind of skeptical to go with the newer 105's b/c I don't know how the quality is compared to the vintage product. I may just have to try it though for a comparison.

    Strengths:    Cost. Makes entry level bikes affordable.

    Weaknesses:    Not very smooth roll.

    Bottom Line:   
    Let's just say you get what you pay for, it's durable and seems to roll fine but not as smooth as I would expect even from an entry level shimano.
