Ease of installation

Took it to a professional for assembly and bike fit.

(5)

Ease of use

Just got on and pedaled - needed pedals so purchased Speedplay X5s.

Quality of Construction

Seems solid, very lightweight. Comes stock with 40mm carbon wheels and Continental race tires.

(5)

Fit

Paid for a professional fitting - good move. Jeff at Elite Cycling in Overland Park, KS.

(4)

Comfort

Bike is solid, definitely different geometry from my road bike, will take some getting used to.

(3)

Adjustability

Have adjusted the seat once, the clamps are a little odd with adjustable screws front and back.

(5)

Value

This was a great deal, the '08 Caliente was MSRP at $3400.

(4)

Appearance

Very nicely done paint on nude carbon - will probably add a burnt orange Longhorn sticker at some point.

Customer Service

Purchased at http://www.bonktown.com,the Backcountry Outlet road/tri site.

Performance

So far, does well. Only have 32 road miles on it so far though.

Strengths

Light weight, solid, excellent mix of Dura-Ace, FSA, and Ultegra components. Cockpit is FSA Vision - added the 25mm spacers to my arm rests and 2 spacers on the steerer tube.

Weakness

Seat a little hard to adjust.
