Strengths:    extremely smooth, unbelieveably responsive. AND i'm the only one in this area that rides one,...everyone else is like everyone else,....TREK.

my 54 cm is SUPERLIGHT! right around 2.5lbs.

Weaknesses:    what can i say, i can't say anything bad about my girl.

Bottom Line:   
this frame is simply amazing. i sometimes want to buy a new bicycle,...and then i ride my orbea the next day,...and wonder why i would even consider another one.

carbon seat stay is just the right amount of vibration damping, i use a look hsc full carbon up front with carbon easton bars,...feels like i'm riding on air.

although smooth as silk, once i get out of the saddle and hammer,...crazy power transfer.
