Strength:

Tough as nails.... I am a 6'3", 220 lbs rider and this frame seems indestructible compared to my previous alu framesets. Also, the airbrushed paint sure is pretty!

Weakness:

I'm sick and tired of freinds asking me where they can get one! Otherwise, the only weakness is the price. Yes, it is a tad expensive for not getting carbon stays, but it sure is attractive and not very many cyclists have one!

7000 series aluminum tubing builds into a light & nimble (3.1 lbs), yet super strong frameset. I have ridden nearly 2,200 miles on the frameset with no problems. Very smooth, regardless of the lack of carbon stays. Super stiff in sprints and handles like a jet fighter. At first the frame geometry seems a bit odd if you are used to standard, but lean into your turns a few times and you're hooked.
