Strength:

Truly supple ride, efficient climber and confidence ispiring handling. Precise welds and low maintenance finish. Ride this and stiff aluminum back to back and you won't believe the diffenence.

Weakness:

My price was used, but these things are quite expensive new. I prefer the fancy paint on the Italian bikes to the plain metal of this. As good as this is, I don't think I could justify the new price for this frame (>$3000).

This bike has essentially no weaknesses. Small road imperfections are eliminated and larger ones are muted. Very stable at speed with razor sharp handling. Climbs very well and just seems to put the power down very efficiently. No paint to chip or scratch and can't rust. For reference I am 5'9" and 150. My other bike, an aluminum Pinarello, feels harsh and fatiguing by comparison.
