Strengths:    Quickness, hill climbs, comfort.

Weaknesses:    Get better tires. side walls blew out way too soon.

Bottom Line:   
A great bike considering both comfort as well as performance. I got a great deal on the bike but is is well worth the actual cost. Frame is stiff and responsive, yet comforable on longer rides. I love the hills and it moves right along on the climbs.105 package it came with is more than adequate. Tires should be upgrades to something a little more puncture resistant.

Strengths:    Light. Beautiful. Quick. Very high standards in manufacturing.

Weaknesses:    the seat squeaks (I'll replace it soon)

Bottom Line:   
My entry into Litespeed and I knew I wanted an Alum frame bike this time around. The Firenze did nothing for me.All of these bikes are beautifully made. You can't go wrong no matter what you choose. Very stiff and quick, but not uncomfortable. Super light weight.
Very happy with my decision so far.
