Strength:

Weight, climbing, build quality

Weakness:

BB92 bottom bracket, difficult to use with cable disc brakes

This frame replaced a Soma Groove that I bent in a crash. The fit and finish are terrific!! Weight is very good! I built the bike using parts that you would find on a $1200 store bought bike, and came in at about 23.5 pounds. climbing is effortless, and it reacts FAST!!!

Only real downsides are 1: the BB92 press fit bottom bracket! Just give me a more traditional setup please! And 2: because of rear caliper placement, it's difficult to properly set up a cable disc brake like my Avids... If it wasn't for these two things, I would give it 5 peppers
