    Strength:

    Very stiff frame. Good ground clearance. Quality workmanship except the BB eccentric was not threaded properly. It needed to be chased. Long top tubes, reasonably light, good handling.

    Weakness:

    Very poor rear tire clearance. A 2.3 tire rubs just a tad. Anything bigger just won't fit at all. Using the 2.3 it is difficult to R & R the rear wheel with air in the tire. God help you if you see any mud though. Only one size frame to choose from. You either fit or don't.

    I will comment only on the frame as compents are well, just components. You pick the grade level you want. Nice bike. The tire clearance is the only real issue. I would have made the rear swingarm longer for better tire/derailuer clearance, which would have also allowed a narrower chain line. The derailuer will hit the tire if you try to move the chain line in to what you might be used to. Other than that it is a nice bike. The Romic shock seems to have enough adjustability and works very well so far. Got the frame at a reduced price so the value is good.
