Strength:

extremely smooth, unbelieveably responsive. AND i'm the only one in this area that rides one,...everyone else is like everyone else,....TREK. my 54 cm is SUPERLIGHT! right around 2.5lbs.

Weakness:

what can i say, i can't say anything bad about my girl.

this frame is simply amazing. i sometimes want to buy a new bicycle,...and then i ride my orbea the next day,...and wonder why i would even consider another one. carbon seat stay is just the right amount of vibration damping, i use a look hsc full carbon up front with carbon easton bars,...feels like i'm riding on air. although smooth as silk, once i get out of the saddle and hammer,...crazy power transfer. I LOVE MY ORBEA.
