    Strengths:    Comfortable - smooth and compliant (is it the Zertz inserts??) yet stiff and responsive enough for me. Very stable on the descents

    Weaknesses:    None so far, other than the price

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought the frame used and used my own wheels (HED Jet 6 and Ardennes) so it was a bit cheaper to build. I race on this as well as ride long centuries and double centuries. This rides better than my prior Trek Madone/5200 and Orbea Orca. It's super comfortable and smooth yet I don't feel like there's any power wasted. I'm a small rider so I don't generate a lot of power though. Not as responsive as C-dale Super Six Evo but more comfortable.

    Strengths:    light, stiff and rides great.

    Weaknesses:    a bit pricey, but saved money by purchasing frame and building it up myself.

    Bottom Line:   
    2012 model that I bought as a frameset then built it up with dura ace. Having been riding a madone sl for the last 4 years, this bike rides much better. It is crazy light and the zerts seem to lesson the harshness of the road.

    Strengths:    Dura-Ace, built in ports for the Di2 ready. Frame is super light and very compliant.

    Weaknesses:    Dur-Ace wheels. As for me not a fan. They are nice and very comfortable, but I prefer the Mavic Ksyrium SL Premium

    Bottom Line:   
    I recently purchased a 2011 Specialized Roubaix S-Works Project Black. Incredible bike. I have a 52 which weighed in just under 15 lbs without the pedals. Extremely comfortable ride for the long hauls.
