What great bike, light fast and a rocket going up hills EXCEPT, the cranks have a known issue.
They started to click within week #1. Immediately I had to take the bike back in and they said that the crank set (FSA BB30) has had loads of failure issues. "Just look up clicking noise + BB30 online" he said. I did and sure enough it has been failing for lots of others. They repaired it, but the issue came back even worse 2 weeks later. I was not stressing the bike in anyway but after 30 minutes of road riding, a loud and really harsh clicking noise was coming out of the cranks every rotation. It was so loud that I could easily record it on my cell phone while riding.
So the bike is in the shop again, and I am trying to figure out if I return it or take a bet that it can be repaired permanently. Given all the similar testimonies online, it will probably be the former, which is a shame since this is a really nice bike.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
