Strengths:    Comfortable, agile, quick and awesome looks both in graphics and the frame geometry.

Weaknesses:    Componentry is sound but nothing to write home about.

Bottom Line:   
Purchased this 2010 model as an upgrade to a mountain bike- Added some comfy bar ends and have fell in love with this machine. Only possible regret is not going for a full racer for my 20km commute. I have been surprised how comfortable it is to ride after a suspension mountain bike. The frame, carbon forks and seat post must be doing their thing. Clip-in pedals have also been a revelation and without any dramas!
