Strengths:    Aero dynamic frame, light, stiff but absorb road shock very well

Weaknesses:    too pricy for the groupo that comes with it.

Bottom Line:   
Test ride this model from our LBS and like it better than the other TT's I tried, though I did not bought one because of too $$$$, it did inspire me to build my own and cost me 4X less.

Took me 6 months to assemble this bike and cost me $1,600 via e-bay for parts. For all its worth my local bike buddies say it could worth over $6,500 it even looks better than the HiMod model.

Strengths:    Amazing framset for the cost, I'd recommend it over many that cost twice as much. Quality of fit: headset and BB.

Weaknesses:    Components are hot the best, hence the very reasonable cost, so I just swapped out the wheel set, brakes and the crank.

Bottom Line:   

I purchased this bike because I was getting beat up by my Cervelo P2 (aluminum) frame and I am not disappointed. The ride is amazingly well balanced and is easy on the body, especially getting off the bike and starting the run. Normally I would have got the 54 size but I took the Slowtwitch recommendation and got the 56 with great results...the tracking and predictability on descents is particularly noteworthy.
I've recommend this bike to beginners and to advanced triathletes.
