Strengths:    Comfortable ride, Excellent components

Weaknesses:    The seat (when does anyone ever not say the seat?) I replaced it with a $30 one from the shop which is light years better for me, even though it doesn't match the paint scheme like the original.

Bottom Line:   
I test rode lots of different bikes of different brands, materials, configurations, etc. At the one shop, I tried everything they had in my size, and I was about to give up, but they pulled this bike out of the basement. It was used, recently traded in. I wasn't looking for a carbon bike, but I figured I'd give it a spin. Almost immediately I was sold. It had everything I was looking for. It rode nice and smooth, was comfortable, but I could also get up to speed and maintain that speed very easily. The bike goes down the road like a Cadillac, but is still plenty responsive.

I took this bike on it's first long ride this weekend with a large group. We covered about 40 miles over everything from bike paths, to country roads, and even a mud (was dirt until the rain the night before) path. I was the last rider to return, though I wasn't trying to win any race. I hadn't taken the bike more than 15-20 miles to that point, so to come off of this 40 mile ride without feeling sore or having any pain or tingling, I was very happy.

In short, being a recreational cyclist that's more interested in being comfortable on long rides, but still wanting the look, speed, and responsiveness of a road bike, I'd say you can't go wrong with this bike. You get a great frame, with good mid-level components (which are MORE than enough for recreational riders), a comfortable ride, and at a great price from one of the oldest bike manufacturers in the world.

Strengths:    Price. Ride. Looks.

Weaknesses:    Tiara shifting not the smoothest under power. Sizing is unusual.

Bottom Line:   
Extremely smooth road feel compared to aluminum. Great bike for price. Fast. Be careful with sizing - 58 is an XL with a 60cm top tube. I am 6'0" and it felt very long-went with a 90mm stem and 5 deg. setback carbon seat post for a perfect fit. I will likely upgrade the shifters at some point, but they work fine and shift well for now.

Strengths:    VALUE. Great deal! Mostly Shimano components (except cranks and cassette) make for a great experience; even though it's mostly Tiagra, it comes together nicely. There are enough gears to meet any terrain. FRAME. Feel is very nice: responsive, forgiving and comfortable. Climbs like a champ, lets me open up on the flats and keeps up with race-bike rider group.

Weaknesses:    Sizing! I'm 5'11" with a 32" inseam and the factory set-up was just too big. I got a 70MM FSA stem and reversed the seat post; the sizing is better, but still not ideal. The relaxed geometry means it's a lot different than other bikes with the same sizing label.

Wheels. The stock ALEX ALX 200 wheels are starting to grind after about 800 miles.

Seat. Replace it.


Bottom Line:   
2009 CCR-3. GREAT VALUE AT $1000 BUT BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE SIZING.

Strengths:    Great carbon frame for the money and I love the lime green paint scheme.

Weaknesses:    FSA omega triple crank with Tiagra shifters shift poorly at best.

Bottom Line:   
Great bike for the money. The FSA omega crank an Tiagra components must go to get satisfactory shifting performance. My bike is actually a 2008, but the drop down bar wouldn't allow me to select that year?
