Strengths:    Exceptional frame. The CAAD4 frame is a real keeper. Light weight and well set up for the money. This is the feminine version, which suits my body height perfectly.

Weaknesses:    Component group could be better (Tiagra), but as parts wear out, I'll replace them with 105 or Ultegra - the frame's a keeper!

Bottom Line:   
Great value for the money. More manufacturers should offer a women's specific design bicyle. The narrower handlebars, short reach on the brake levers and shorter top tube all combine to provide a much more comfortable ride for females. So far, only Cannondale and Trek offer this design. The Cannondale fits right between the Trek 2000 and 2200, so if you want something more than the 2000 (look at the component spec and you'll agree), but don't want to go to a 105 bike like the 2200, then go for the Cannondale.
