Strength:

Ride comfort and solid frame feel. Frame will last a long time if taken care of.

Weakness:

Weight, but expected due to 4130 chromoly frame+fork

I got the 54 cm (medium) and I weighed the bike to be 23-24 lb. Road with a friend on a full carbon bike and on the climbs you feel the weight slow you down. The triple front chain rings helps on climbs. This bike is fast on the downhills where the weight helps you pick-up speed and the steel frame absorbs the bumps making the bike feel secure at high speed. The weight of the bike doesn't make it as responsive as a carbon bike on sprints and pedaling out of saddle. The triple triangle rear is stiff enough so that the bike doesn't feel springy like traditional steel frames, but not too stiff to wear you down. Read-end stiffness helps put power to the rear wheels. Stand over height is low due to the sloping top tube on my medium frame (I'm 5 ft 9 in.) which makes the bike easy to handle when stopping at stoplights and crosswalks. Future upgrades are all carbon fork and lighter parts to make the bike more responsive and fun. Also like the look of the triple triangle frame which stands out among other bikes.
