Strength:

Comfortable carbon fork and carbon seat stays and chain stays. Campagnolo Chorus gruppo: light and smooth, it's a wonderful feel. Columbus Ultra Foco Steel frame. The top tube tends to be a little shorter than most top tubes on a bike of similar height, but that's exactly what I needed for a perfect fit.

Weakness:

The Italia Selle Flite saddle is a high-quality racing seat, but even after 600 miles of riding, it didn't suit my anatomy. I replaced it with an Italia Selle ProLink Genuine Gel for comfort. The stock 10-speed cassette is an 11-21, way too small for the hills and mountain roads that I bike on. I replaced it with a 13-29, which required a medium-cage rear deraillier. (I still use the 11-21 for long, flat rides.)

I picked up the new bike on Monday, July 21, and immediately went on a 64-mile ride. I knew, before finishing the ride, that I had made the right decision with this great road racing bike. Smooth, light, stable, and responsive, the Treviso has it all.
