Strength:

Very versatile, mounts for everything I've tried, disc brakes, FD cabling, rack, fenders, water bottle cages, could have even run a cable to my front dropper seat post. There are even mounts I've not found a use for yet. Great ride, running triple crank, 10sp gearing, 700x40 tires, The 2012 frame had extra gussets on the head tube connections. Fit and finish were perfect.

Weakness:

A bit on the heavy side.

Strength:

Strong frame
Nice plush ride of steel
Ability to use gears or single speed
clearance for 29er mtb tires

Weakness:

Heavy but its steel.
Fork dropout is just slightly twisted. Not a big deal but takes and extra 30 seconds to get the wheel nice and snug.

I bought this bike because I wanted a single speed cross bike that I could use as a commuter as well. I was using my Redline conquest team but I really didn't want to leave it locked up outside. This frame seemed to fit the bill. Disc brakes would make it good in the wet. It has the option to run geared as well although I don't see myself using them.

Overall I have really enjoyed the bike and have been very happy with it.
