Strengths:    One of the top carbon bikes on the market. It is surpprisengly stiff for the weight. Very responsive and climbs like there is no tomorrow. The Dura Ace group shifts well even when throwing a 39-54 front chainring (Requires a 113 XTR Bottom Bracket)Recommend paying the extra for the Hot Rod Fork (it is well woprth it. A truly great ride which is well worth the money.

Weaknesses:    Haven't found one yet.

Bottom Line:   
Bottom Line. If you want a responsive, quick, good climbing bike that will truly turn heads this is the one to get. Well worth the price.

Strengths:    The Trident tracks very well at speed with no quirky tendencies. The bike loves to climb! Feels like it is
accelerating uphill.

Weaknesses:    Tad bit pricey. I've had some problems with the Speedplay pedals.

Bottom Line:   
I would recommend this bike to anyone. I have gone as far as 200 miles in one day without a problem. Once the bike is dialed in, I've had no problems at all. Good climber. Accelerates very good even with the 700c wheels. The carbon fiber frame with the Aegis Hotrod carbon fiber forks absorb rough roads easily. I would buy another if I ever wear this one out!
