Strengths:    Extremely comfortable, yet climbs and corners with ease.

Weaknesses:    Need to back up the Chorus components: my rear derailer snapped on a straight climb without reason or warning...

Bottom Line:   
Great bike, worth the cashola, but would go back to Shimano if given the choice. Wonderful frame and comfortable on the long rides! Used by the Shackly racing team, and yet great for the recreational rider, like myself. Great colors and finish. I received several "great bike!" comments by riders as they passed me by...

Great price for a full chorus grouppo on a high end steel frame. The wheels, saddle, bar, and stem are all excillent quality. Beautiful paint and chrome.

The bike arrived with an FSA head set instead of the chorus as listed in their literature.

Bottom Line:   
The best I'v seen anywhere for a Campagnolo Chorus equiped stock bike. To do any better I'd have to go custom.
