Strengths:    Overall, oustanding workmanship, well-tuned ride, and a lifetime warranty to back it up.

Weaknesses:    Too many stickers! (lacquer thinner make short work of them)

Bottom Line:   
Everyone I ride with buys a new carbon fiber bike every year! I bought this exquisite, handbuilt, American bike and I plan to ride it for more than one season. Excel Sports Boulder's customer service is outstanding and their sales, including the 40% discount on this bike, are, I believe, a rare thing on the internet. Overall quality is top-notch. The frame arrived with an inspection tag that carried the initials of all the workers involved in its manufacture. Although I may have been 'traumatized' the the somewhat harsh ride of my all-aluminum Pinarello, I have to say that the ride quality of this titanium frame is absolutely amazing; it is dialed in! Road vibration is a thing of the past, but there is no lack of stiffness in this frame. Outstanding!
