I had taken a little side trip earlier up the grunt climb on Ingles Field, so I could test the climbability. It was what I expected and a little more. The bike is so light that I was able to power up the climb with less resistance. And when I turned around and cropped back down, I realized quickly that I was not used to gliding over rock gardens as quickly as the bike enabled me to glide.
The bottom line: I love the Siren 55 SL ( 69er) that I am currently riding, but this bike is high on my wish list...very high....as in number 1. I can tell that over the course of a 4 plus hour, the light weight, and stiffness would conserve a lot of energy, and would definitely result in faster race finishing times.
