Strengths:    Frame! esp considering all the potholes and bad roads here

Weaknesses:    wheel hubs sealed?? and i need to purchase 2 new wheels.
Weight (but u pay for what u get)

Bottom Line:   
For the mileage that i've done, this bike has served well and true -especially considering the weight of 9.9kg. It's taken me from a L batch Argus to G batch to C batch this year.

Strengths:    Great components, light weight, smooth ride

Weaknesses:    Aesthetically unappealing, feels weird at 25-30 MPH

Bottom Line:   
My LBS found one of these still at the warehouse and ordered it knowing I needed a new ride.

The ride is smooth. The carbon stays and fork absorb the road bumps pretty well.

The 105 drivetrain is dandy.

Kore Gradient II wheelset is great. I am always the first one to the bottom of hills when the groups is coasting.

Seat is average. I might replace it, but it's okay for now.

The bike is light. I don't know official weight, but compared to bikes priced $100-$200 more similarly equipped, it is a featherweight.

Something does happen at 25-30 MPH where the bike feels like it is hitting a wave. It's the only way I can describe it.
