I've owned this bike for about 9 months, and it has not failed me in anyway except for numerous flats [I don't blame the bike, btw]. I ride about 300 miles a week on average so the seat does get a bit hard on the backside, but not unbearable. All in all, I think it is an excellent road bike.

    Great for bike trails, paved, would like a larger tire, but I will change to 700 28 or 32 for crushed stone paths. Lots of fun to ride, like the riding position. Would have liked to have options of the blue color with upgrades. Whats up with the one color, back in the day you could pick your bike and then decide on color....

      Also have a Trek 7100 and this is a nice step up. Very lightweight and great shifting.

        Got this bike several weeks ago. I am riding 40 to 50 miles a week on it right now. It has been great! The bike is fast, shifting is smooth and easy. The seat is comfortable. The only bad thing I would say is that with the handle bar configuration there are limited hand positions for longer rides.

          I ride this bike 5 or 6 days a week. The components for this price point are excellent and the bike is very well designed. Currently I have about 5oo miles on it and it is having its first adjustments. The tires from the old FCR series have been changed to Michelin, and my shop has not had any complaints so far although they are a little softer. So far the only complaint, and I won't really call it that, is the handlebars have a rubber grip on them that is uncomfortable without gloves on. For anyone getting into or back into cycling you will very much enjoy the bike.

            I recently moved from a specialized roubaix road bike to this bike and I am loving it. I also ride mountain bikes so I like the feel of this better. It accelerates nicley, handles very well, and is fun to ride. I use it for 20 miles quick fitness rides and it does great. If going over 30 miles I would opt for the road bike however. I expect a fair amount of performance from my bikes so I would not be happy with the lower,heavier models but the 0 model fit the bill. Great spec for the price.
