Strength:

Very smooth ride.

Weakness:

The Chinese build quality is very poor, mine must have been made on a Friday or Monday because right out of the box the cables were routed in a reverse fashion and the brake/shifter levers did not function correctly.

Strength:

Handles and rides great. Beats the aluminum trek 1100 and the steel lemond cyclocross bikes hands down.

Weakness:

Geared high. Am changing double crank for triple crank.

Recently purchased a Diamondback Podium 4 race bike. It's carbon fiber frame absorbs bumps wonderfully. Rear derailuer is Shimano Ultegra and the brakes are Shimano 105. Both work great so far.

Strength:

Light weight, super stiff, very smooth over rough terrain, and built up with all Ultegra and dura-ace components.

Weakness:

Stock bars had to go due to being narrow, and odd feeling. Wheels are a bit heavy for this level of roadie, but are more than adequate for me at the moment.

This bike is a dream ride. Smooth as butter, super light, and handles awesome due to it being a "compact geometry" frame.

Similar Products Used:

Test road Fugi's Treks, etc.. and this bike blows every bike I road away.
