Strength:

2011 Kuota Kross outfitted with DT Swiss 465RR wheels shod with Schwalbes (Racing for 'cross, G-Ones for gravel), Bontrager RaceXLite handlebar w/BRXL stem, Prologo saddle and SRAM Force gruppo. A serious 'cross bike. Only one bottle mount, so you'll need to self-carry (or mount temp cages for longer gravel rides). Descends and climbs like a scalded dog. Getting a 2018 for the 2019 season with disc brakes, so I'll post on that one this fall/winter after I break it in. Enjoy!

Weakness:

Only minor weakness is toe overlap on extreme turns at low speeds, but as long as you are aware of that, you should be able to compensate.

Strength:

Absorbs bumps like a champ!
Light & accelerates.
Geometry is perfect.
Highly recommended for anyone in the market for a light cyclocross bike.

Weakness:

None

No nonsense cyclocross bike. Handling is impeccable. Stiff bottom bracket. Only thing I'm unsure of is it's bunny hopping capabilities. However, the couple I've done seem fine.
