Strength:

Very light and high quality. Beautiful finish. Very stiff and fast. This bike really likes to climb especially out of the saddle. I love the red, white and blue colors- looks patriotic even though you're riding Italian...No one at the club rides has one- they are unique.

Weakness:

A little flakey on a decent but it sure goes uphill ! I wonder how long it will last...I did have to get gel gloves because the ride is a little harsh and don't get fat because it has a weight limit.

My bike is a 48cm sloped frame and the bike weighs in at 17 lbs and change. Fantastic acceleration and real stiff. The paint and finsh are high quality and it looks great. Mine is painted in the Alessio colors and it was the frame for their 2002 TDF. I can't say if it is worth list price- but I sure love mine!

Similar Products Used:

Nothing lately to really compare since my other bike is great 80's vintage Eddy Merckx.
