    Bottom Line:   
    Absolutely Fantastic.
    It really transfers power to the wheels and it seems to absorb the bumps really well.
    And it looks good

    Strengths:    Light, Stiff.

    Weaknesses:    Biggest weakness of this bike is the seat clamp. Even with carbon grease this thing still slips. But, I have found a way to make it stop. A single layer of paper tape. Thing hasn't slipped since

    Bottom Line:   
    Bought this frame to replace my lemond frame that was 2 sizes to big. My previous bike had been a Giant TCR Aero 1 and I really liked the aggressive style and handling of the TT/Tri bikes so I went again with another one.

    The Build was a custom job with various different parts. Only thing left is the Zipp 999 set.

    Strengths:    stiff. geometry allowed for quick acceleration as well as a comfortable ride in high gears (54-11). Very comfortable yet aggressive riding position. Good price for what it is.

    Weaknesses:    Heavy. We put it on the scale, just under 20lbs. This test ride convinced me not to get the Scott Plasma LTD even though it weighs 4 pounds less.

    Bottom Line:   
    Impressive design, well chosen components including the aerobars. My only complaint was weight. Even the price was impressive

    Strengths:    light & stiff yet smooth over the rough stuff. Super aero & just looks fast!

    Weaknesses:    Stock FSA cranks are areo and stiff but fairly heavy, as are the aluminum Vision base bars. Stocks Easton wheels are great for training but heavy for racing. You may want to upgrade those components

    Bottom Line:   
    Finally bought my dream bike (really just wanted the frame but the whole bike was just less than a grand more) and dreams do come true! Unreal speed machine! Averaged 3 mph faster over 40kilos than I ever have on any other bike!

    Strengths:    Speed and value. I got the bike a bit under retail and I couldn't come close to that price if I pieced it together. Zipp 404s and Full DA kit would be more than I paid for whole bike.

    Weaknesses:    Saddle.

    Bottom Line:   
    Bought this 2005 in 2006. It is my first tri specific bike and the first thing I noticed is speed. This bike is fast and stiff, yet the carbon stays make it comfortable to be on for longer rides. I am not a huge fan of the stock saddle and I may replace that. Bike also feels a little quirky on the front end, but I may need to bump up a frame size.
