Strength:

Absolutely gorgeous. Rare. Minimal graphics enhance look Rust Free, sub 18lbs Campy Record 9s components are incredible, especially brakes. Shifting is 100000% better than SxxxxNO Oh, phenomenal ride quality!

Weakness:

Tight frame/rake @ 56cm means toe/wheel overlap in tight NY City turns (I have to keep 1 foot out of cleats)

Was in the market for a good/great steel frame bike, and was about to get into either a Dean, LeMond Zurich, SteelMan, or Waterford. Saw this come along on the Roadbike Review Classifieds, and asked a lot of questions. The circa 1998/9 Campy Record, Chris King, Syncros grouppo was just what I was in the market for. Had to have some minor fit adjustments by great LBS (Roy's Sheepshead), but now fits like a glove. Incredible finish/sheen of stainless has the Seven/Independent/Litespeed riders do a double-take. Gorgeous welds, excellent ride.
