Strengths:    Great all around bike.

Weaknesses:    Ditch the original wheelset.

Bottom Line:   
I bought my CLX in November of 2013 after a TON of research. Over the past year, I've put on over 5k miles and absolutely LOVE this bike. The first thing I did after buying the bike was get rid of the original wheelset and replaced with Shimano Dura Ace C24 wheels. The only regret is that I stayed with the Ultegra setup and didn't go with Dura Ace.

Strengths:    Comfortable and quick. Very attractive bike. It handles the road very well.

Weaknesses:    The sloping design is a little difficult to size.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the frame on line and built it out with Athena. I could not be happier with this bike. This was my top choice when researching frames. I almost went several different ways but in the end am extremely happy with my choice. It absorbs the road well and is quicker than I had anticipated. There are no hills where I live so I can't testify to its climbing ability. Like all bikes though, it is the engine that truly matters. I do not race but I am extremely competitive. I highly recommend this bike.

Strengths:    To begin, the bike looks really cool and it should with an Italian name on it. I am a avid cyclist and have been riding since 1996. I have done some racing over the years. This bike is for a comfortable ride and exercise. You may not be able to afford a Ferrari but you can afford this bike.

Weaknesses:    Standard wheels are heavy by racing standards. If you want it to go faster you will have to invest in some lighter wheels and tires.

Bottom Line:   
This bike is no longer in production. It is a sexy cool looking bike. This bike was about $3,800 with the Ultegra package.
