Strength:

Light weight, road bike tires, and short wheelbase make the bike very responsive to the rider. Accelerates very quickly, turns like a racing wedgie. Good Shimano componetry and hubs. Underseat steering gives a fighter jet feeling to the rider and makes mounts and dismounts easy. Long chain has a low friction idler. Short wheelbase (42") makes it fit standard forkmount bikerack trays. Smaller front wheel keeps feet low and seated position more comfortable than other bikes tested.

Weakness:

Small front wheel size (349) is less common.
Not a biggie, but size adjustment involves chain for more than 3/4" adjustment so "can I try your bike?" only works for people with similar measurements.

This is a fun machine. My wife says it looks like I am not working as hard as she is. The bike feels responsive and quick. A real pleasure to ride.
