Strength:

Strong BB that resists twisting forces well, and is generally solid, with an excellent reputation for long bearing life, and the cost is reasonable for a TI BB.

Weakness:

Availability, weight is not great if you are a weight weenie - but I think shaving weight on areas like bearings is stupid unless somebody is giving you a new one if you burn through it.

This is for the Signature XS TI BB. Really nice resistance to the twisting forces of pedaling, as well as just the normal round ones. So when you put some "English" on those pedals, it goes into the frame, and the bike does what you intended. Not the lightest TI BB out there, you can find ones that weigh 50 grams less, but this one is really suppossed to last, due to a superior bearing design (wider bearings). I'm not shy about riding in the rain and snow, so that is why I picked what is really a XC BB for my road bike. If you can find one (they're discontinued), buy it.
