Strength:

Great riding position for city. Amazing basket, fenders and chain guard mean you can just hop on the bike and go. I have put over 30,000 kms on this bike in 8 years and it's been quite reliable. Since I bought it 8 years ago I have replaced the seat, for preference, not failure, tires in year one, front brake pads many times, serviced the hub twice, replaced the rear sprocket three times, front chain ring once and the chain twice. I ride the bike all year round in hilly terrain, temp between -10c and 35c. I have 5 bikes but this one gets ridden 95% of the time even though it is the slowest and heaviest.

Weakness:

Brakes are poor. Two hands are required, however I did a stoppie once to avoid an accident once, so they do the job. Original tires were abysmal. Switched to Schwalbe Marathons 7 years ago and with more than 25k kms on them, they are fine.
