Strength:

Low cost - neutral geometry - strong customer service

Weakness:

None

I bought this frame looking for an aluminum frame suitable for winter training and rain riding in the northeast. I was attracted to the spec with its standard English bottom bracket and 27.2 seatpost, which allowed me to transfer parts from an existing older frame. I initially cross threaded the bottom bracket, but the customer service folks at Planet X corrected my mistake at no charge.

The frame rides very well. It is stable; the steering predictable and quick. The value far exceeds anything I expected for $260. This frame can be built into a great entry level race bike or a wonderful winter trainer. Beat it up, ride it, race it and it will come back for more.

Strength:

cool paint. rare bike. as light and stiff as needed. SUPER CHEAP

Weakness:

the welds aren't smooth like cannondale and a bit heavy.

I owned this frameset years ago in baby blue and now have just ordered it again, built up with sram red for 1300.
why anyone would not buy this frameset at the 180 dollar price it's going for I can't understand...other than to say comercialism.
get it from the u.s. distributer or england has a nicer color and better bike deals. build it at home and save. 100 bucks shipping from england
