    Strengths:    -Excellent buld quality
    -Fits me perfectly - size Large for a 6' 185lbs guy
    -Outstanding ride dynamics- extremely responsive and fun to ride

    Weaknesses:    Very rigid for long rides but still fun

    Bottom Line:   
    I've now ridden this bike for 15 years and covered about 20,000 miles and it has been bombproof and flawless. Solid construction, durable, comfortable, aerodynamic, a hill-climbing monster at it's finest!!!

    Because I have a sore lower back I installed a Rockshox suspension post when I first got this bike and despite the weight it was a great decision.

    My dream is that Santa Cruz re-issues this road bike for those of us in LaLa land.

    Strengths:    Agile, responsive, stiff, comfortable

    Weaknesses:    seat post binder uses an unorthodox cam rather than a pinch bolt. You really have to tighten it down. They should have devised an aero fairing like cervelo.

    Bottom Line:   
    These are quite rare now because production stopped a few years ago, but if you find one at a fair price it would be worth a look.
    I enjoy riding mine a lot, and I get a lot of questions about it at races.

    Strengths:    Stiff
    Great looks

    Weaknesses:    Maybe a bit too stiff
    Easton carbon post undersized for seattube (changed to Raceface).

    Bottom Line:   
    Love the compact geometry and looks of the Roadster. The frame is light and extremely stiff which translates into straight ahead speed and no flexing when climbing out of the saddle. Good for big, strong riders...
