Strengths:    LIGHT! FAST! Full carbon lugged frame. Price.

Weaknesses:    Not well known on the road scene and should be.

Bottom Line:   
Compact design, very light, well spec'd with Sram Red, Mavic Kseryum Premium SL option as well as AC420's. Bike was super smooth out of the box. Accellerates fast, climbs well, handles well, stable in turns and on decents. Overall great ride.

Strengths:    Light but stiff.
Great value
Great road manners - like all well designed carbon frames it takes road vibration and bumps well. It does well in both crits and road races.


Weaknesses:    None that I can identify.

Bottom Line:   
I believe its well established in Triathlon, not as well known in road cycling. It should be. Combination of performance and price make this a winner. The tube set is well designed. Closest comparison I can make is the Colnago C50. Big tubes near the BB, custom top tube shape, lugged. Very well engineered. Flawless manufacturing and paint. Very well done IMHO.

Compact design - though I prefer the look of "conventional" geometry, I have no preference for compact vs. conventional from a perfomance standpoint.

First bike I ever assempled in SRAM - have been a 30 year+ Campy man. For what its worth, will be converting my back-up bike (Pinarello) to SRAM.
