I've ridden this frame for the past two seasons and still can't believe the quality and value! I almost bought a Litespeed, but the frame size I needed was out of stock for the model I wanted. There are those who will turn their nose up at what they feel is another Asians carbon production line bike without the quality of the likes of the Italian or Spanish products. I believe that for half the price, you got the same quality. Great bike, nice team colors.
