Strengths:    Entry carbon, really good frame geometry, ride quality is excellent. Not my first carbon bike but its certainly a great platform to start.wheel set was true and matched bike well. I got the Gellardo Orange in matte finish, really a sharp bike and definitely visible.

Weaknesses:    Not a fan of the adjustable stem angles using a shim. Seams heavy but not really to bad. The brakes suck, I swapped them for 105 dual action and Kool Stop salmon pads much improved. Stock wheels are heavy. Price was not bad but should have had better brakes so it gets a strike for that

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bike although mine is a 2015 with 9r carbon and 11 speed 105. Crankset is a 52-36 and a 11-28 cassette. Seems like a good selection however I prefer an 11-25 cassette. Bike is solid and not much energy lost through frame when pedaling. I upgraded wheels and brakes but after that it really is an outstanding bike weight aside, look forward to many years of service.
