An extremely competent all-around race machine. While not a full-on aero bike it can hold its own on the flats and it excels in the hills, both up and down.

Pros
  1. +Beautifully balanced handling
  2. +Considered aero touches
  3. +Still feels like a climbers bike
Cons
  1. -Still some proprietary touches
  2. -Threaded BB would be preferable
  3. -No 0mm seat post option
