Being new to road biking i wanted a bike that was affordable and one that i would not need to upgrade right away. I was looking at the 1.1 and the 1.2 at first. The 1.1 is a great bike but i was put off by the aluminum fork on it so that left the 1.2. after comparing the price of the 1.2 with the price of the 1.5 i decided to spend the little extra and gain a lot of bike. Shifting is really smooth and hills are no trouble with the compact crank. If you are looking for a quality bike with great components get the 1.5 you won't be disappointed
I've had this bike for a year and have put +2000km on it and still like it as much as I did the day I got it. It's light, rigid, has a perfect geometry and is very reasonably priced. Awesome bike!
This bike is a fantastic ride. It's very fast, and the carbon fork makes a big difference in light road chatter for someone who's used to steel. The bike is wonderfully efficient - it just coasts and coasts and coast if you let it, holds energy very well. My only major complaint is that, as someone used to analog shifters, any delay in shifting is very noticeable. Possibly this is just something out of alignment, but the bike seems to have trouble shifting between higher cogs. Also, the carbon fork is murder on my wrists, but it's so light that I don't care. For those not in the know, carbon is smooth on small bumps, but much harsher on big ones. Need thicker gloves.
I got this bike about a week ago planning to race this summer. i wanted something smooth, fast, and durrable. This bike is all of them! the shifting is extremely smooth the shape of the frame is pretty confiturble to!Im 100% glad i choose this bike. In 5 days i racked on over 75 miles. this its truely an amazing bike
