Strengths:    Light weight
Vibration dampening
Custom paint and setup if desired

Weaknesses:    Can be a bit pricey but worth it

Bottom Line:   
This is the most awesome bike I have ever ridden. I had a steel frame bike for years and wanted something new. I ride about 150 miles a week so I needed a nice bike. I tried many different full carbon road bikes both more and less expensive than the Z4. A few came close but most were no contest. Every time I ride this bike is great, like driving an expensive sports car. I cant wait to ride it. It is way smoother than my high end steel frame bike and way more responsive. I may not be much faster on it but it sure feels like it. I would recommend this bike to anyone wanting a high performance road bike. I paid $1600 for the frame and fork slightly used.

Strengths:    Very comfortable on long rides.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Very responsive. Light yet solid. Very comfortable on long rides. I have been riding an aluminum bike and really notice the difference in comfort. I am over 200lbs and the lightweight frame feels plenty stiff and rugged.
