It's fast, light for this type of bike, and has secure road performance.


shifting requires frequent initial adjustments, which is probably endemic to the 105 performance group. Front derailleur also has a half way adjustment that takes some getting use to.

I wanted a bike that I could commute with. So I went with a flat bar road bike and I think this is among the best of it's type. The componants are all of the medium grade shimano 105 road set. The weight is a reasonably light 20.8 pounds, I added shimano double sided clipless pedals, continental touring plus tires, and a topeak bike rack. With the more durable continentals, I feel more confident I can make my commutes without flats. After work, I like to go out for about a daily 22 mile bike homes, instead of my usual 8.5 mile trip. I take it on a fairly hill but not mountainous route. The gear range is adequate and does not require me to use more than 5-6 gears of the rear deraileur's range. It's not as fast as my bianchi road bike but is not as prone to flats and has a more comfortable riding position for me. It is stable and not prone to any shimming at 35+ mph. It rides on packed gravel and I use it for road trips of 60+ miles.
