I bought it in January from a cycling club in France to do triathlons. The bike had barely 500km.
Since then, I used it more on the turbotrainer than on the roads (only on the dry). I raced 3 times with it (Sprint, Olympic and 70.3).
Each time the bike was great. It's light, super stiff, and can go really fast if you have the legs (which I don't). It's a bit aero on the front area, and works well with clip on tribars. It's light on climbing, easy to ride in the corners.
The bike is in mint condition except a light scuff on the left crankset, and 2 small chips on the varnish on the rear left side, other than that, it's looking good (check the pictures for the details).
It's a high quality product, handmade in France, and the frame design is really well made.
It's a fast bike, and the combo frame/fork has an huge potential to make a lightweight bike. I couldn't afford racing wheels, but this is definitely a bike to start with and save a bit of weight on the wheels and get a 7.5 kg racer!
I'd love to keep it and make it evolve, but at the moment I don't have the legs to make it go fast, so it's a bit wasted with me. Be warned! It will makes your quads burn!
