Strengths: stiff, responsive, made some changes for racing, swap dt swiss xcr 1.2 wheelset for mavic slr, reason more stiffness and avoid breaking the rims. It is very lightweight besides XX group not very much different of a well tuned Cannondale Taurine SL
Weaknesses: non so far.
if you are of those kind of riders that "float" on the seat and like to go downhill with the "behind seat position" you should change then the fisik seat for narrower version say Selle slr ultimate carbon.

Strengths: Fantastically fast!. This bike climbs like a scorched cat. Was very impressed with how comfortable it rides for a HT. The rear of the bike really does absorb a lot, yet there seems to be no sacrifice in lateral stiffness. Accelerations are extremely positive and quick. The Sram XX also is fantastic, and the Lefty is outstanding - nothing better.
Weaknesses: Very Expensive... but what do you expect for a bike of this quality.
If you race... and like speed... and money is no object... get this bike. I think we're going to start seeing a lot of these at the local races.
Strengths: Where do I start. Light, fast, responsive. Not quite a softtale but boy does it feel good. When racing you flow over the bumps. It's a wierd feeling in that the faster you go the smoother the ride.
Weaknesses: Obviously expensive, but then you really donpay for what you get. This is not a gimmick, you get full value for money.
You wanna race, you wanna be fAst, this helpS, I have a a big advantage over YOU now.
Very nice bike. Not for weekend warriors, this is for ur hard core riders who wanna go out and win.
