Strengths:    Strength. I have had a couple of falls, with no sign of frame damage, apart froma few scratches. It's one solid bike.

Weaknesses:    Weight - it's heavy and acceleration is slow compared with other full carbon bikes I have ridden

Bottom Line:   
My first serious bike, did quite a bit of research but only test road one other, an orbea, before buying this (probably the name had a lot to do with it). I have done over 7000km and am happy with it. Though in the last few months I have taken to racing local crits and stuff and think that maybe this is not the best bike for this style of riding. Although way lighter than my prvious low spec road bike, it still weighs in at 9.5kg including bidon cages and pedals.
