Strength:

very reliable, just doing regular upkeep and tuneups.

Weakness:

none at this point after 10 years

Love my bicycle!!! I have had it for 10 years and this year I have really appreciated. A major cross wind and many people walking their light light weight bikes up the hill so they won't get blown over. I felt the wind but was able to ride anyways.

Strength:

Good set of base components (105), durable and comfortable frame (Kinesis super light aluminum), solid training bike

Weakness:

Resale value

As a stock bike, decent. With upgrades, it's better. Added Shimano 535 wheels, 105 calipers, 3 TTT stem and bar, Cane Creek headset, Selle Italia Saddle. Bike still weighs in at 21 pounds after spending a grand total of around $1200. It's a tank, but a good training bike. Has served me well, but the no-name factor severely affects resale value, which makes it a good deal for second hand shoppers. If I could do it again, I'd spend a few hundred bucks more and get a 105-equipped Trek or Specialized (for resale value).

Strength:

Lightness and stiffness of the frame. I got a killer deal on this bike from a bike dealer on the net.

Weakness:

None so far.

The bike is light and strong. The frame is stiff and holds up well to my large size. The 105 components work well. I had to put on 105 brake calipers though as it came with cheapies.
