Strength:

Frame and wheels.
Great bike for someone who is on a bike lots of hours, but doesn't race.

Weakness:

Biggest weakness has been in the front derailleur, even though its Shimano 105, its not quite smooth.

I've waited a while to add this review. I purchased this bike in Jan. 07. I have put nearly two full seasons on it, over 2500 miles. This is a great bike, and no one looks and goes wow over the name, but its a very good bike. I've put new tires and tubes, pedals, and a couple of cables, and that's all. The wheels Shimano WH550's are solid, and true. The frame responds to a sprint, descends great, and you can stay on it all day.

Strength:

FSA carbon cranks, FSA winged bars - people don't appreciate or talk about the comfort of winged bars. Shimano R550 wheels - roll incredibly and bearing surfaces remain flawless.

Weakness:

Too many people looking at my bike trying to figure out why it isn't a Specialized, Giant, Trek etc. - out here people follow the herd, they can't figure out quality for themselves.

Well spec'd bike that rides well. I understand people going for the big "roady" brands on uber-high-end bikes, but at this price I just picked the bike that fit well and had good parts. Many people seem to look as far as the deraiuleurs. I looked at wheels, cranks, bars too and with that considered, the bike ruled.
