Light weight. Good frame. Comfortable riding position.
Annoying noise from BB area. Stripped down and still no luck! Really poor wheels.
I bought this road bike in the sales to replace my old carrera. It's a much better bike lighter, stronger, and faster. The first thing I noticed is how comfortable it is, its much better than my old bike and I can ride for hours in comfort.
The biggest problem is the wheelset. Seriously poor. After two rides I had to take the front wheel back to the shop as the spokes were so loose. I used to work in a bike shop and this is not the quality I expect from specialized! The bike shop managed to snap two spokes trying to fix the problem and I had to wait for replacement spokes. I am going to get a quality set of mavics on there A.S.A.P.
DON'T be put off though by the wheelset, the rest of this bike is quality.
