+ suspension fork-ready geometry
+ eccentric BB = QR wheels--don't need to worry about carrying a wrench with me to change a tube/tire
+ decent component spec
- no disc brake bosses
- heavy?
The fork on the Peace 9r is NOT suspension corrected (unlike the Monocog).

There's a reason it's so popular. Last year, shops couldn't keep them in stock.
