Strengths:    quality welds & construction, generous headtube length allows higher handlebar position, responsive/stiff frame but fairly compliant vertically so you feel the road but are not jarred by it like a good sports car suspension, superb Lite Tec fork is quite stiff but amazingly dampening, bike descends as if on rails, excellent climber, quick handling but not twitchy

Weaknesses:    None for me, but this is NOT a relaxed geometry tourer so don't be fooled by the long headtube and upright-ability - perfect for fast club riders who desire a more comfortable upright position

Bottom Line:   
quality Ti frame with racing geometry yet long headtube for comfortable upright position delivers lively, responsive, yet plush ride

Strengths:    Build quality, geometry - great for recreational fitness and long recreations rides, ride characteristics - this bike smoothes out all but the worst road surface vibrations. Very stable on decents. Value is also pretty high at less than $1.5K USD for a Ti frame and carbon fork.

Weaknesses:    None for my purposes, which are mainly recreational and touring type riding. It is not a racer boy type frame, but I will use it for sprint triathlons.

Bottom Line:   
Initial review of Veneto frame and carbon fork built up with previously owned Dura Ace components.
