Strength:

Great power transmission, predicatable turning, smooth ride.

Weakness:

There are absolutely no weaknesses with this bike. However, it could be considered heavy by today's standards. A lighter rider may feel the difference (I am 165lb).

Best riding bike, ever. It steers so predictably in all types of corners that it feels like it's steering itself. When you push the cranks, this bike goes, yet the ride is super smooth. Compared to other bikes I've owned: The DeRosa Primato feels just as comfortable, but lacks the power transmission. The Klein Quantum has slightly better power, but is twitchier and less smooth. The Trek 1200 is of course a more economical purchase, and doesn't really compare, performance-wise. The fork is quite good. It's heavier than the new carbon forks, but soaks up nearly as much bumpy road. It seems to turn a bit better.
