Strengths:    Speed, handling and durability.

Weaknesses:    The RS-10s....

Bottom Line:   
OMG, I went from a Specialized Sirrus to the Tarmac. My speed and ride went thru the roof.... I love the feel, the bike wants go it hates being stopped. It accelerates like a motor cycle not like a bike. The only thing I have replaced is the wheels were a RS-10's and went to Reynolds Solitudes and they make a big difference. I have rode about 3000 miles on it.

Strengths:    Beautiful carbon frame that rides as good as it looks.

Weaknesses:    At this price point - some cheaper components, seat, crank, wheeels.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome Frame - bike just wants to be ridden. Intuitive handling, corners on rails. Nice paint scheme - but the Gerolsteiner stickers looked like an afterthought and had to go. This is a great bike for anyone looking to get into a performance oriented frameset. The carbon frame is much more comfortable on long rides.
