I ride the same bike in a 54 & i must say is excellent!

If you're looking @ new road bike & you're 5'10" - 6' you'd not be disapointed with this, is truly an excellent bike! There's nothing i'd trade mine for up to £5k...

Good luck with selling Simon

its fab bike, but looking to get the 6.9ssl, test road it recently and its awesome. Hopefully someone would be interested in it soon. thanks for the comment. did you upgrade the wheels to RXL really worthwhile, it flys now compared to the racelite wheels.

Cheers Simon

Race x lite wheel sets are superb. It's just the original race lites were very poor, wheel flexing and heavy. Race x lites spin up much quicker and light with white spokes as well. The new wheels transformed the bike into a proper racer, quick and responsive.managed top 25 in dragon ride on it.

Please note this is OCLV CArbon, built in USA not the new cheaper TCT frame made in Taiwan.
