Aero-dynamic, fast and tough!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Bought this bike just over a year ago and have been impressed on the whole. It's lightweight considering its price and it seems to be very aerodynamic (it may just be my position on the bike though). It's surprisingly rigid considering the carbon aspects of the bike but that does mean that comfort is decreased slightly. A criticism of the bike is its mix-and-match type components with 105 shifters, Tiagra derailleurs and Barelli chain set which don't quite gel together. The Barelli chain set has skinny cranks and with a small bottom bracket anyway this means that putting the power down can feel laboured, I've found this to be most prominent on steep climbs. The default wheels that come with the bike are quite heavy and un-aerodynamic but having upgraded them to Mavic Aksiums the bike has felt a lot faster and lighter. However, the price really doesn't do it justice, this is one of the best bikes around to buy if you're an entry-level rider.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, fast
My first road bike and was bought to compete in Triathlons with. The service was excellent when buying the bike and help was given ensuring that it was set up correctly for my hight.
At first glance the bike looks the business! The red finish and white decals make it look like a 10k bike not 1k (in my opinion.) It is also extremely light (7.7kg) but without compromise to rigidity and feels sturdy, well made and responsive when i stomp on the pedals.
The gear changes are clean and effortless and brakes pretty sharpish too. All round a top first bike couldnt be happier with my purchase.
