Submitted by Lyndon Box a Triathlete from Birmingham, AL

Date Reviewed: May 2, 2000

Strengths:    This bike is FAST! My times went down considerably with the upgrade. I notices probably a 1-2 mph speed increase on training roads I was familiar with compared to my bianchi road bike equiped wiht aerobars. It is very stiff and the carbon fiber stays dampen the road vibrations. It also is a head turner for the shameless tri-geek.

Weaknesses:    The cost. I got mine on a closeout for half price. As much as I love it, I don't know if I could swing their retail price.

Bottom Line:   
Dont let the fact that is alumnimum thow you. I rode ti, carbon and aluminum when shopping and this has a really unique feel to me. It doesn't flex (I weigh about 175), its fast, and its sharp. If you are serious about triathlon and you are looking for a unique bike check it out. If you are a heavier rider, you will probably like the frame even more. If your a budget racer or Ti/carbon worshipper, you probably should look elswhere.
