Strengths:    Fast, Light, Responsive, Descends very fast as if on a rail...not a twitchy as the Pinarello. Frame is explosive when "the pedal is pushed to the metal", it rides as if someone surgically implanted the frame to my body...Brain and frame communicate without thinking about what to do.

Weaknesses:    I do not have any weaknesses to report especially after 2,000+ hard miles...I am 56 and at the front of whatever group I ride with.

Bottom Line:   
I have 2 CARRERA GIOVE Frames set up with Campagnolo 10 speed record. One is about a pound lighter than the other because I have all carbon fiber componenet including the crank. I sole 3 of my 4 Pinarello Paris and Prince bikes because the Carrera Giove is so superior in handling and descending. It is great looking as is the Pinarello Prince.
