I got one for a good deal end of season last year for my first real race bike. I've put it through a lot over the past year of riding/racing. Must say I really like it...has good features and is a bit less expensive than some of the bigger names in tri bikes. I find it holds up fairly well climbing hills when next to carbon frame bikes (did the American Zofingen du on it so it has seen what hills really are). IMO, a very good bang for the buck.
