I didn't even ride it, but spun the crank today while it was on a bike stand...

man that dura ace is smooth and the crank felt like butter..

it looked light (56"), and like a beast

i didn't even right it, and I feel like getting it... some guy at mountains of misery said it was too stiff for him (he went with the 5.5
---

this is compared to my 2003 9 spd trek madone 5.2 with 10k miles 56cm.

I have one... And it's Amazing! Well Its a 6.5 which is the exact same frame as the 6.9 and I liked the black color better. the race light carbon wheels are awesome and attrack alot of attention. GO FOR IT the bike is stiff, but doesn't have that feel too it. I also put Ceramic bearings in the BB and its even smoother.

I don't think my LBS has one yet. Dura ace is probably just the same all around on other bikes too.

I just want to test ride a 5.2 for some fun one day perhaps.
