Strengths:    Very stiff and durable ride
Amazing value for the money

Weaknesses:    None - relative to the cost of this bike, you can't expect anything more.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike in March 2012 and have been riding it fairly steadily since then putting about 3000 km on it. The stock tires that it came with the Zaffiro Pro slicks didn't hold up for very long (about 800 km) however I kinda expected this and bought some Michelin Krylion Carbons which I've been riding on since without issue.

For people like myself who are quite strong riders and slightly on the bulky spectrum (I'm 6 ' 3" 210 lbs), the SL3 is the ideal bike due to the stiffness. Although I'm very enticed to eventually upgrade to carbon, it will be tough to leave behind this beauty of a ride.

In summary, if you like a stiff bike that instantly responds when you slam the pedals, this bike is for you. At $1400, it won't break the bank either. Exceptional value!
