Strengths:    Very Aero wind cheating speed machine. Also designed for crosswinds.

Weaknesses:    Frame weight

Bottom Line:   
This is a very aero bike. But more importantly the frame is extremely comfortable. I have also set personal speed records for the IM bike leg and 40k distance.

I attribute the comfort of the bike to the IM PR. I raced the same IM 1 year prior and was beat up by the road while riding a Fuji Aloha triathon bike. I went back the next year and did not even notice the bumps in the road.

Strengths:    Easy to set up with fully adjustable seat post setting and stem adjustments up front. Rear wheel quick release at horizontal angle makes wheel changes very convenient on the fly.

Weaknesses:    Cant think of anything

Bottom Line:   
Absolutely comfortable with excellent feel of ride. Beautifully concealed cabling for gears and brakes reducing drag. Quiet frame compared to some with internal cabling. Stiff frame and nice cornering bike.

Weaknesses:    Stiffness, push on the cranks and it translates to speed.

Bottom Line:   
This is an absolutely awesome bike, equipped with SRAM Red crankset the stiffness, accelaration and top end speed of this bike is brilliant. Comparing this to my Trek 5200 with clip on bars, there is at least a 1.5km/hr advantage with this bike.
