Strength:

Strong stiff and responsive. Supreme fit and finish. no water bottle or cage holds which proves this is true cross bike. VERY VERY light rig, but don't be afraid of this, it performs and holds up.

Weakness:

none at this point at first I didn't like that it was design around the compact crank but then when I realize why, stiff chain stays, better tire clearance. I was totally converted.

This is my 2rd true cross rig I've had made by them, I was a product test for the cx alloy version of the carbon bike, I have #49 of 50 made. This is my third CX specific bike and my favorite above all. I really like my CX, but the CX1 performs much better. I wanted a bike that was even lighter. The carbon cross comes in, about 15 lbs and with my zipp 404's - super light. You can check this rig out at plusonlap.com . It's great handling and tracks straight in all conditions - I was completely comfertable on it at natz in KC with all the weather changes. They are sized large, consider using the seat tube measurement when sizing, but a true euro cross rig tends to lean to the high side. Fit and finish is first rate. The seat stays and the fork is solid, the alpha Q looks sexy and handles awesome. The brake pivots don't flex. Very solid bike, great value for a carbon rig. Bike comes with head set frame/fork and post. You can buy it as a frame fork/post set up or complete bike. Remember that this bike is design around a compact crank, if you run a standard you can only run one chain ring on the out side, but I would recommend just follow the manufacture and just use a compact.

Strength:

Super light weight, strong stiff and responsive. Supreme fit and finish. no water bottle or cage holds which proves this is true cross bike.

Weakness:

None just make sure you realize that this bike was designed around a high stand over height. We tend to be used to a more road style cross geometry in the states. I ride a 56 and went with the medium. The bike was made with a compact crank in mind, don't go standard just run a 44 single and your fine.

This is my 3rd true cross rig. I've alway ridden Empella and was considering an Ridley super cross but after seeing a friends carbon cross I had to have one. This is my third CX specific bike and my favorite above all. I really like my empella but wanted a bike that was even lighter. The carbon cross comes in, about 16 lbs and with my zipp 303 it's at 15lbs - super light. It is great handling and tracks straight in bad conditions. They are sized large, consider using the C-T seat tube measurement when sizing, but a true euro cross rig tends to lean to the high side. Fit and finish is first rate. The seat stays and the fork is solid (they just partnered with alpha Q so I just got the cx 20 put on) and the brake pivots don't flex. Very solid bike, great value for a carbon rig. Bike comes with head set frame/fork and post. You can buy it as a frame fork/post set up or complete bike.
