Strengths:    Light weight, great price used, not as well known (so it is not going to be like everyone else's bike. I like that. It is a fast sprinting bike as well.

Weaknesses:    Not as light as the new carbon stuff that is out. Of course I can lose a few pounds to make up for it ;-)

Bottom Line:   
It is a superb ride. Longer than my Italian Casati steed. I had to change stems lengths to compensate for the difference. The scandium frame and carbon rear stays mix dampens the road vibration. Overall seems to be a very fast bike and I was able to drop a few pounds from that of my Casati. I was impressed that the model has been ridden to a U23 National Championship in 2005 by TIAA CREF's Ian McGregor.
