Strengths:    Handling, ride, build quality, appearance

Weaknesses:    If you're a weight weenie or an aero fetishist, look elsewhere.

Bottom Line:   
Just a quick note - I built this bike up from a frame and fork - the full carbon upgrade rather than the standard fork.

The frame and fork arrived promptly and in perfect condition, and built up without drama.

I have given the bike a fairly thorough workout in a variety of conditions, including high-speed descents and racing on poor-quality coarse chip roads.

As far as I am concerned, the geometry is an ideal balance between stability and quick steering, and the ride is positively cushy by road bike standards - and it's not just the wheels, because I have ridden my other bikes with the same wheels. While it was purchased specifically as a training bike, it is also a fine race machine. It's not the bike's fault I couldn't do better than 5th in the local club race.

Just as importantly, it looks great, and I'm hoping it will continue to do so for years to come.

Most important of all, however, it puts a smile on my face every time I ride it. Any ride puts a smile on my face, but the grin is just that little bit wider on my new bike.

My riding style is as follows: horrible climber (any weight advantage I can get Ill take), bigger rider (175), loves to sprint and haul on the downhills, no racing just ... Read More »

Paris Rouleur... da video

I flew to Paris this summer with a number of objectives: #1, a means to enter Europe and get to my final destination in England without going through that dump known as Heathrow airport; #2, consume 'Teh Kulchers' and take pictures of it; #3, watch the end of Le Tour and cheer Cav and Cadel to a fin ...

Truvativ Rouleur Crankset Problems

Hi All, I've got about 100 miles on my new Truvativ Rouleur double crankset, and I am experiencing a problem. No matter how tight I crank down the bolt on the left-side crankarm, I still get a small amount of rotational "play" (movement) between the crankarm and the spindle. This isn't free mov ...
