Strengths:    Short chainstay = stiff ride, racing geometry feels great, components, Orbea service

Weaknesses:    larger sizing (small feels like a medium due to high standover)...yes I'm a shorter dude on a 29er, paint chips fairly easily.

Bottom Line:   
Love this bike so far. This thing is fast and I love the geometry as it feels like I'm in the cockpit, not over it. The stand over sizing is big (not much different than their medium), but the top tube is perfect. I was skeptical of buying a $2k+ bike w/ a RockShox Recon Gold TK fork as you would think it would have a Reba or Fox, but the Recon Gold is just as light as the Reba and so far has performed suprisingly well, even in Moab/Fruita recently. Wheelset is solid, but slightly heavy for a "race" bike. Paint has chipped kind of easily though, where my previous bikes didn't have this problem.
