Strength:

Price, amount of carbon, components, looks.

Weakness:

Don't believe the reviews about the seat being uncomfortable. Put in the miles and break in the saddle and your back side. If you want comfort then don't get a road bike. Bontrager handle bars on this bike are ok but i prefer the shape of the bar that comes on the Specialized Alez. This is more of a preference than a weakness.

This is my first road bike. After considerning many new and used bikes for about 6 months i purchased the ArcSuper. I love this bike. After a bike fitting and a shorter stem i found that this bike fit me very well and have been able to ride 30 miles a number of times in complete comfort. For the money this bike gave me more carbon and better components than similarly priced bikes. I also prefer being one few people with this bike while others are riding the major road bike manufactures.

Strength:

Weight, Looks, Relaxed Geometery, NOT a harse ride

Weakness:

Accessories on the bike are a little weak.

I was coming off a back fusion and was looking to get back riding a bike. I used to race mountain bikes and BMX. I looked at allot of bike and at few local bike shops. This bike has a more relaxed geometery to it and I felt more comfortable riding it than any other. Pretty light and the parts all worked well together.
