OMG What a machine

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
I gave up a Trek Madone so I could have a bike to help me climb better. Not only did I break multiple PR'S on the first day of climbing, I also broke PR'S on the flats. This bike is amazing. It is stiff when I get out of the saddle, but surprisingly comfortable. My first ride was 40 miles and I never felt any discomfort. This bike is worth every penny.

Superlight Bike.

Pros:
superlight bike
Cons:
saddle, I personalized with my saddle.
Best Uses:
everyday, after work rides. Racing
I owned a 5500 for about 12 years and while it was still a very usable bike, I decided that I needed to consider a replacement. This is a superlight bike, great wheelset, I have about 500 miles on it and have no regrets. The geometry was basically the same (H1) as my 5500, so the transition was easy.

Love this Bike!

Pros:
Dura Ace Group Set, Matte Finish, Light Weight, Stiff
Cons:
Expensive Parts
Best Uses:
Road Riding
I have put about 600 miles on this bike since I got it a couple months ago. It rides very well and the wheel set is super quiet. Overall, I think the bike is sub 15 pounds with pedals, Garmin mount, water cages and saddle bag. I can't ask for much more! All of the carbon parts are super light and the guys at Woodbury did a great job putting the bike together. Thank you!
