Strength:

Good second hand buy. Very efficient frame . Lovely looks imho.

Weakness:

I am a tall , broad rider with a long reach. On a suitable frame size those of a different build may find it a problem. You are not going to fly up hills , given the weight

Strength:

STIFF, good price, very fast. LOOOOVEEE the San Marco Aspide saddle, very cushy after breaking in.

Weakness:

Heavy, 105 components, and lower level bontrager parts. Wheels could roll better

Awesome ride for the money. The 2005 model is full aero, vs the semi aero profile of the previous year's model. The geometry isnt 100% tri, but its very close, make sure you try out the sizes around your "norm", as I could technically fit a 58, the 60 fits much better, after adjusting the seatpost and aero bars to a better aero position (79 degree seat tube angle w/ the saddle all the way forward)

Strength:

Great frame

Weakness:

Components are not the best.

I tested several tri bikes in the price including the Giant TCR Aero 2, Cannondale Ironman 600, and a Felt F-65. All the bikes were great but the Trek provided the smoothest ride of the bikes tested and in my opinion had the best frame.
