Strength:

Translation of all energy into forward movement. It flies up hills.

Weakness:

None.

My Merlin Camena is my bike with wings. After riding an aluminum/carbon Fuji, this bike is amazing. Same weight as the Fuji, but absolutely no energy lost to road vibes. I've used it for touring and doing tris. I got a great deal because Bike Authority had had it in inventory for a while ad was having a sale on al ti bikes. The bike was stock with the exception of seat, crank and wheels. I have it fitted with a 50/34 compact double. They also did a great fit.

Strength:

very nicely made. responsive. carbon rear stays absorb road shock.

Weakness:

a tad pricey

a lovely ride. made for a woman's body dimensions. beautiful titanium frame. this year's ultegra grouppo is OK.... improved over last year. I ride on chip and seal a bit and the road shock is sucked up by the carbon stays nicely. very light after my steel LeMond.
