Well I just pulled the trigger on the Kestrel Evoke with 105 from BikesDirect.com. :D

Now I am counting the days before it will be delivered. I read alot about this bike and virtually every review was positive. I have ridden the Cannondale Caad 8 and 10 and the geometry is very similar splitting the difference almost exactly in half to both of these bikes with a slightly longer top tube.

The spec seems to be that of a bike that would be about $800-$1000 more. My only concern is the wheels being low spoke count . I am 6'2 and weigh about 255. I will ride them until they are shot and likely upgrade to a set of Mavic Open Pro's with Ultegra hubs.

Does anyone have any first hand experience with these wheels and or bike in the larger sizes?
