Strength:

Price. Aluminum frame is stiff enough for power transfer while competing in tris; carbon fork is comfortable enough that I can ride it all day without being beat up.

Weakness:

If you're riding in a group, you might be the only one with 650 wheels. There's no sharing spare inner tubes!

I picked up this bike while training for a Long Course triathlon in 2003. Once the fit was dialed in I was able to enjoy its responsive yet comfortable ride, even on some centuries. This bike makes me feel like I can keep riding all day! It is reliable, sturdy, and the aero position lets me cut through the wind. Very fast (for me).

Road bike with clip-on aero bars (no comparison!).

Strength:

Price,weight and fast

Weakness:

There are softer rides but at twice the price.

Tried several Tri-Bikes... Quintana was best bang for the buck. I would of prefered the Caliente but the Kilo was just as good of a ride, but the Caliente was a softer ride. For a $800 difference I'll take the kilo until I can afford the next level. No other bike compare to the kilo in the same price range

Strength:

light,fast,comfortable,cheap!! Looks great, great paintjob and smooth welds

Weakness:

105/Tiagra components, hard seat

Out of the box, this 47cm bike was 17 lbs. Add pedals, and a new seat,(the one that comes with it is a board),water bottles, blowout bag, spair, and tools and Im up to 20 lbs. Great wheels for the price. 650c volicity deep V's. Looks like Volicity hubs, but no logo so cant be sure. entry level arrowbars with end shifters. The bike can climb! and is suprisingly smooth, thanks to the carbon forks. Could have spent alot more and been less pleased.
