Strength:

I've purchased the 2014 LeMond TDF '86 commemorative frame (which is a rebadged NXS with a slightly different rear triangle). This is a gorgeous frame, hand built in France with minimal paint over a tight weave. Sharp tube shapes are subtle and aero - for example, slight rear triangle cut-away, dramatic shape change towards seatpost, indents to account for bottle cages (which are included with the frame), a well thought-out design. Other clever additions: integrated headset adjusts for preference, integrated seatpost (which I have on my frame) can adjust upward to about 4" and has an easy-to-adjust clamp for saddle.
This is a race-oriented frame and I am not a racer (more of an endurance guy), so I was a little concerned that the stout frame with no real "flex" would be rough for the long rides. Nope. It does a fantastic job of smoothing over road chatter / buzz. This is a super-frame, designed by one of the best and most established frame builders in the business and you will be impressed.

Weakness:

It does cost a small fortune - but that is to be expected for hand made frame from France.

If you can find it and afford it, you will be pleased.
