Strengths:    Smooth as silk, strong, stable, light, quick--among the best, if not the best, I have ever ridden--and I have ridden a LOT!!

Weaknesses:    No longer made, hard to find, headset is a bit tricky to set up correctly (requires two bearing rings on the lower cuff, rather than one, for best fit/operation)--best is to by a frame fork combo with headset already installed.

Bottom Line:   
I originally had a "53" completely build up with Campy mechs--loved the bike, fast, quick, smooth, comfortable--BUT, too small. A year or two later I was able to track down a "55"--just my size, and the rest is history--perhaps the smoothest, fastest, most comfortable bike I have ever ridden--a sprinter, a climber and a cruiser all rolled into one. The bike is all carbon, with the "wavy" seat stays and the "wavy" fork--they do sever to cushion the ride, while at the same time offer great rigidity in cornering and climbing. Finishing, paint, graphics among the best in the business. My bike looks as great as it rides. Absolutely a perfect bike, such a shame they are no longer made.
