I have meant to post this wonderful bike months ago, but I never did as it continues to be a work in progress. I have nothing but great things to say about this bike, and since I have got it built up, my CAAD10 has sat unused in its corner. This does it all for me: sharp cornering without the feeling of oversteering that I got from my old SuperSix, solid climber, surprisingly nice on gravel, and a stunner to look at

And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
@HeluvaSkier ... I have heard both positive and negative things about the stem. Do you have personal experience? Which stack height did you own? From what I gather, the 35mm stack height had the flex issues. Mine is the 40mm stack height so I am hoping for the best. The Hyper's front end is stiff, not as bad as the SuperSix thank goodness, but enough to make my right wrist that is forever damaged from an "unattentive" driver to ache. A little flex will not hurt my performance.
