Strengths:    Overall a fantastic bike. Light, stiff, comfortable, confident, fast - it even looks fast standing still. The bike just wants to be riden. Short rides or long ones, one hour or five in the saddle and you just want to keep going. It also handles corners like it's on rails. No muss or fuss, just point and go. Just be carefull because if you are riding in a group you will come out of corners faster than everyone else! The internal cable routing helps keep the gears in adjustment much longer than on other bikes I've ridden. Only take them to the shop to get adjusted once every 3,000k or so, if they need it or not. 12,000k on the bike at this point and still rides like the day I got it. Could not ask for a better bike!!

Weaknesses:    Absolutely noe.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome bike - highly recommended to anyone who is a passionate about riding

Strengths:    Seamless power transfer - step on it and it's gone. Stiff yet smooth (not comfortable but smooth). Looks fast standing still!

Weaknesses:    750 miles on the bike and the Fizik Antares is still trying to break in my rear.

Bottom Line:   
What a surprise bike. Came off a Giant OCR C2 and this bike is alive! It doesn't let you slack off because it just wants to go. Stiff yes, but absorbs small bumps and vibrations very well. Other competitive riders that I had a hard time keeping up with now have a hard time keeping up with me. As for handling, you just have to think about going somewhere and it's already there. Cornering is swift and handling is confidence inspiring. The shifting is sharp with the Ultegra groupo and internal cable routing. With a pair of Roll D'Huez wheels, it weighs in at a respectable 16.4lbs. I would highly recommend this bike for anyone who wants a race-oriented bike that can keep up with bikes worth thousands more but still wants to ride long distances.
