Strengths:    Best blend of comfort and speed out there. Unbelievably comfy, yet stiff bottom bracket and headtube/fork encourage riding fast. Seems to motor itself on flats, but still is reactive when you put the power down. Climbs like a dream, it has that light feeling that isn't common. Slightly slack head angle gives great stability descending. Clearance for 28c tires. Great looking bike. Di2 works like a dream. Great value.

Weaknesses:    Nitpicking, but the frame is electronic only with no option to go back to mechanical drivetrains. Too many cheesy acronyms on the frame.

Bottom Line:   
What can I say, this bike blew me away. It's everything I've hoped from a road bike, and more. I've outlined almost everything it's good at in the strengths section. However, while most of its geometry is that of a typical race bike, the one deviation is its slack 72.5 head angle. It slows down the steering a bit and stabilizes the bike (especially on downhills and unpaved races like the recent Boulder Roubaix, where it rode like butter), but this is not a disadvantage as it provides a crutch for cornering-challenged people like me and merely requires you to change your style from slicing corners to carving them.
