I wanted a more areo and compliant carbon bike than the older one I have. This bike does both extremely well. I was wowed the first time and still am after 3 months. It just rolls over the bumps and really flies. I really like the SRAM red/force setup and the aluminum wheels work well for winter and trainer. I swap them out for my zipp 404's and make it even more aero and compliant. The paint finish is fantastic. I keep it waxed and clean after rides. Customer service was great and it shipped fast without issues. Overall great deal, thanks!
