- It's light. I don't know exactly, but I'm guessing I've got 16lb-ish build here. I feel, and probably am, faster on this bike.
- The front end is noticeably lighter, and I suspect it's because I've never had a full carbon fork. Not a bad thing, however.
- The bike has a very solid feel. No rattles or creaks or the incidental sounds here and there that I've grown accustomed to from my CAAD9 and cross bike.
- The SRAM Force group performs like gangbusters. Significant improvement over SRAM Rival.
I'm very pleased with this project. I wouldn't even hesitate to order another frame/fork from this ebay merchant. http://shop.ebay.com/e_baygoods/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686
