Strength:

Light, rigid but smooth ride. Great looking!! Had heads turning even with an array of Treks/Pinarellos/Colnagos

Weakness:

None so far ....

I bought the 2002 Carbon Challenger and after 2 weeks riding took it over to follow the Tour de France. It was great up the mountains - light and stiff. I hit some pretty big potholes - but the bike stayed steering was brilliant.

I've been riding a steel Pinarello for 4 years. Still like that bike very much - but weight and ahead steering, make the Ciocc so different to ride.

Strength:

Light, rigid and responsive

Weakness:

None yet, I assume a full carbon frameset would be more comfortable.

This is a review for the 2002 Challenger carbon with sloping frame. Ciocc have made a number of other manufacturer's bikes. This is hand built in Italy and is well made and finished. The frame is everything a Pinerello Prince, or De Rosa Planet is for a fraction of the price, I assume this is because they do not sponser a top team. Nicest bike I have owned.

Strength:

Very, very stiff and very light. Acceleration is limited by your strength, not the bike. Very good feel for aluminum.

Weakness:

The tubing walls are very thin. I haven't crashed it yet, but when I do I don't have high hopes for the outcome.

This is actually a review for the all-61.10 frame without the carbon stays.

This is the first AL bike I've owned, so my opinions may be suspect.
