Strength:

Great comfort without much loss of ride agility. Muscle fork is nice.

Weakness:

back wheel clearance to seat tube tight - max tire size probably 25cm.

After 30+ years of riding this is the best riding bike I have ever owned. Great comfort for long rides yet good enough handling. If you like steel this is probably one of the finest modern steel frames made at any price. Muscle fork is great and carbon seat post is good. I am 6' and 205 lbs and this bike shows no sign of fatigue after 3+ years.

Similar Products Used:

Gitane super corsa (old), custom reynolds (late 70's), Trek Aluminum (painfull!), Trek OLCV (nice ride till carbon fatigue/breaks).

Strength:

steady handling, responsive, acceleration

Weakness:

None.

The Cervelo Super Prodigy is incredible. It takes right off from underneath me and is extremely smooth and stable at speed. The steel frame is really smooth and it is really light. It takes off on descents and in sprints. An added bonus is that its not a bike that you see every day and it really feels like one of a kind. I have had no problems with it. The Shimano WH-R540 wheels have never been out of true. And the frame's black and white paint stands up to anything. All of the components run perfectly and they have been through a few minor crashes. All in all this bike is a smooth, stiff ride that helps me to go fast, and it can stand up to anything I throw at it.

Strength:

Comfort, perfect handling, feels fast, looks, value

Weakness:

none really, although a 1"1/8 steerer would've given me more future fork options

it's not possible for a steel bike to be any better than this. Buy one!! Pull out all the positive cliches, coz they'll be apt for this bike. It's stiff (for steel), handles perfectly in all situations, and has the typical springy comfort of good steel.

I have the 58cm model (center to top -- 57.5cm top tube), and I thought the frame would be a little lighter (it's 1670g totally bare), but I'm no weight weenie, so I don't care.

I found the 1" Columbus Muscle a little too flexy, so I swapped it over for an alu-steerer fork.

I paid $1700 Aus for the frameset (includes headset and carbon Cervelo seatpost), which is actually a pretty good price for a steel brand-name import down here. I would've payed more! The predecessor (the Cervelo Renaissance) retailed for double this price.

Strength:

Ride Quality of fine steel. Must be just about the lightest steel frame made. Team CSC paint scheme is very good looking. Welds are top rate.

Weakness:

Really none. Could be lighter but then it wouldn't be steel. Bottom bracket weld could be prettier, not as nice as the other welds. Cervelo has discontinued this frame!

Absolutely fantastic. Colombus Thermocrom Foco Steel Light (for any material) and stiff. Corners and descends like it's on rails. Climbs well too.
