Weaknesses: The sizing seems a little off. The Medium frame is a 55 and the large is closer to a 57.5 or a 58. I come in just under the L at 56.5 so I used a shorter stem and dropped the seat a bit. The seat tube is a 58 and the top tube is a 57. Getting my pro fit next week so it should be spot on.
I just finished building this thing up. Beautiful machine. Gorgeous massive tubes and sexy tri-color paint job. This bike is designed for power transfer with a HUGE bottom bracket cluster that runs into big fat chain stays in a nice sweeping line.
A massive head tube area blends into a down tube that changes from a teardrop shape to a squared off bottom bracket junction.
The bike is very fast yet boasts a smooth command of the road. Under high power output it seems to be asking for more.
Handles effortlessly and seems to want to go for the inside line when cornering at high speed.
She climbs and descends really nicely also.
Great race ready bike with a big bling factor.
I'll update this post as I put some more miles on it.
