Reasons sound good!
I really liked your reasons #1 and 4.
I've been enjoying the Stratus for a month now, have had two flats (one today), and put on about 170 miles in the last three weeks. It's a very nice bicycle, and a very forgiving one too. I'm also learning to handle it in tight turns, which is somewhat more difficult than one would think.
Thanks again to all who wrote.
