Strength:

Very comfort ride, an excellent climber and stable on down hill. Excellent bike for epic rides.

Weakness:

None so far.

Road rider from Singapore, took it for the first ride for 128 km trip. Absolutely fabulous ride compared to my alu Pinarello. In short, it is comfortable and yet fast once pushed. Totally love it. Components wise, a mix of Dura ace, Ultegra and 105 for drivetrain. Wheels is a pair of Mavic Cosmic Elite. I strongly recommend this frame to serious bikers.

Strength:

Riding position, smooth, supple ride.

Weakness:

Not an uber-stiff, sprinters' bike, if that's one of your considerations.


An amazing ride. This bike is smoother than the Madone 6.5, in my opinion, while not being quite as stiff in the bottom bracket area. I can pedal farther with less fatigue and more speed on the Ibis than on any other bike I've owned. The position is a bit upright compared to some,(I'm 5'9" riding a 53cm) which I favor and lends to the all-day comfort. It steers quickly off the front end while remaining completely stable at speed, say on a downhill curve at 45+ mph, it's like being on rails. Great on the uphills as well, a very light, well-mannered speedster.

Similar Products Used: Trek Madone 6.5, many others.
