Strength:

Broam 30. This bike meets all my criteria for a modern gravel bike - lightweight, cabling through the frame, 3 water bottle holders, disc brakes, various mounts for fenders and racks. This bike has long chainstays and slack geometry, perfect for someone coming from a mountain bike or touring background, who finds road geometry a bit too twitchy. Also, an added bonus - no toe overlap, even with the 40mm tires! (My bike is a 54 cm). There is also the ability to switch from 700c to 650b wheels. I bought it directly from Felt - it's the last year's model and came with a large discount.

Weakness:

My old bike has a Brooks B17 saddle and the jury is still out Felt's SR Essenza Blackstar Gel saddle. The tubing shape is ultra-modern and I prefer old-school round tubing but that's just aesthetics. Also, the front chainring gearing is a bit high for me at 48/30. I will probably change it to 42/28 to better fit my riding style.
