Strength:

Solid frame for all around biking. Feels stiff while climbing and the ride is comfortable as the miles climb into the double digits.

Weakness:

Built model from Litespeed is a little pricy for an Aluminum bike. Better to get the frame and build it up. Nonstandard seat tube size can make finding a seat post somewhat more involved.

Got this frame off ebay and bulit it up with a mix of Dura Ace and Ultegra with a compact crankset for climbing in the Mtns here in NC. The compact frame feels very differnt than my Madone and it took a little longer for me to dial in the perfect saddle height. The seat post is oversized but Thomson makes a nice post that fits the bill nicely. Might be tough to find a carbon seat post is this size though. Handles well decending, very stiff for climbing or sprinting, and surprisingly comfortable for an aluminum frame. The frame and carbon fork/seatstays look very sharp. Paint seems robust (better than TREK!) and the frame is very light.

Similar Products Used: Trek, Lemond, Fuji, and Giant aluminm frames.
