Strengths:    lightweight, responsive, decent components for the price, bike can really get up and go at a moments notice

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Bike is a 2010 Seduza and its a great bike. I have had it for just under a month and have been riding it about 20 miles a day. The reviews regarding the earlier models indicating issues with seat discomfort and tire / wheel issues are unfounded on this new model. I am extremely comfortable on the bike and feel like riding it all the time. The bike is responsive and its smoother than the bikes my friends have. Many of them have been riding for a lot longer than I have and I am able to keep up with easily on this bike. For the price its a great investment and I look forward to riding it for years to come. All 3 Sports in Atlanta great job.

Strengths:    Frame Areo, responsive, nice looking

Weaknesses:    Alex 320s Wheels wore out in four months terrible. Replaced them with Dua-ace some day I will purchase Zips. FSA Omega Cranks way to heavy for me. Changed from 172.5 to 175 Dura ace. The Vision aero bars are next to go but ok for now. The Seat Quintana Roo very uncomfortable, changed for a profile tri-Stryke very nice way better.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a 2009 Quintana Roo Seduza,for training and commuting to work. I really like the bike, but I am slowly changing the components. very areo and responsive, lots of complements. I like the bike allot I just have to lighten it up. When I'm done whatch out.

Strengths:    Frame is light stiff and aero.

Weaknesses:    Wheelset, components and Qroo customer service.

Bottom Line:   
Front deraileur bracket loosened upon normal use. I called Qroo to have the problem fixed in 2009, their "policy" it to warranty the frames for only three years. They did fix the deraileur bracket (which is their design flaw), but I had to pay for the work and shipping both ways.

Strengths:    speed

Weaknesses:    very weak components when purchased
great tires, aweful wheelset

Bottom Line:   
I actually have a 2008 QR Seduza, it just wouldn't let me choose 2008 for the year. The frameset is one of the best frames i have seen on a bike. Everywhere i go, people have to comment on how nice the bike looks. The frame is really responsive and very light. I luckily picked the year where the bike came with d/a r. derailer ultegra front derailer and d/a aero shifters. For the 2009, they definately dumbed down the components all the way through. Except for the two derailers, this is pretty much a buy-and-build bike for me. Ive gotten rid of the aluminum components that came with it. Upgraded to Profile Design T2 cobra carbon stem, clip on bars, base bar and QSC brakes. Purchased new ultegra brakes and will most likely get new chain and cassette in the future, kinda dissapointed on some of the cheap components on it. The summer will most likely yield a FSA carbon crank of some sort. The wheels are absolutely aweful. Alex 320dx. Some of the worst i have ridden on. They have a terrible feel to them (will have to get some new ones when the bike is paid off). If one were to find just a frame of this bike, you would have a very good start off point. When i am done building this bike, it will be comfortable and a rocket on the road

Strengths:    comfortable frame, light, stiff, responsive. Value

Weaknesses:    stock wheels are horrible, parts spec is a little cheap, internal cable routing can be hard to work with

Bottom Line:   
Great frame and geometry. The spec was a little cheesy, coming w/ a 105 level cassette. Plus, the stock wheels are just horrible. I put a rating in for the ALX320s and how bad they are.
The bike however, is just amazing. Comfortable, light, stiff, and responsive. I put some upgrades in which make the bike just amazing. I swapped the crank after a year to a KForce and went DA front to back.... this thing flies for me now. Awesome bike, best value BY FAR for the money!
