Small review:

The handling in corners is very nice, "like on rails" springs to mind. Albeit not as twitchy as the Kinesis with a .5 degree slacker HT (same fork, 43mm rake). But certainly no under steering where as the Kinesis might have over steered just slightly. So the Kinesis was a little livelier, but this thing is like a rocket shot out of a cannon when accelerating from 15 or so kmh upto 50-55 kmh... Slow starter, but might put that down to the heavy wheels...

it does pulsate forward slightly on a sprint, sort of Scott Foil:ish, would love to test it with some Ksyrium SLR's or similar, think that might really bring out this side of it...

All in all, clearly much bang for the buck if you don't mind the harsh seatpost, the rear triangle is fine for comfort and it's not as rib battering as appearances might suggest.
