    Strengths:    Great Looks. Light, Handles Very Well, Internal cable routing makes for a very clean look. Assemble was a breeze, everything aligned properly on first try. Complete bike cam in at 24.38 pounds.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Handling is spot on. Looks great. The carbon is stiff as expected and makes climbing a breeze, due to weight loss & efficiency gain.
    Why pay big bucks for a super brand name when you can be different and save some cash. DON'T BE A LEMMING!
