Strength:

Stiff, smooth, lots of compliments and good comments.

Weakness:

It would be nicer if it was a hair lighter, but even then who cares. Maybe in 2005 when they revamp the road bikes they will lighten in a bit.

Love this frame. I have ridden a 99 alloro, 99 shotping, 2001 EV2 all from Bianchi. I would have to say that this is the most comfortable ride I have had on a bike. The 55cm frame weighs exactly 3lbs (about the same as my 57 EV2). This is sort of heavy but built without peddles its 17lbs. The coolness factor, handling, rigidity, and comfort are well worth it.

Strength:

Light and stiff. Very comfortable carbon monocoque frame. Fast. (Also looks magnificent!) Value (price given is US$)

Weakness:

None.

An excellent bike - certainly the best I have ridden or tested out. Feels like you are riding on carpet with no road vibrations at all. Great power transfer when you put the hammer down. A much nicer feel than the Trek 5500 which feels wooden in comparison. Also descends much better than the Trek. Complete confidence in the steering/handling, probably due to the better FSA rather than Cane Creek headset.
