Strengths:    Fast, light, stable, comfortable, beautiful to look at.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I had been riding Ti bikes the past 5 years. I liked the light wieght and relatively lively feel. My last bike a Seven Alta was great, stiff, light, but always squirley on descents. I wanted something more stable but equally stiff and I wanted to try a carbon bike. after a couple months research, this bike ended up my short list. i am not disapointed, this bike does everything i wanted and more. stiff, yet comfortable for longer rides, rocket fast, climbs beautifully and descends like it is on a rail. I originally was going to keep my Seven and but realized i was never goig to want to ride it. the bike also ended up being a lot lighter than I thought it would be.
