by uppercasefromGreat BikeI am a novice triathlete and bought this bike for racing -- it's a great road bike with solid construction and componentry. I've owned Diamondback mountain bikes before with great ownership experiences, so I had no qualms purchasing this bike.
I swapped the pedals for some Shimano SPD-SLs and have been riding great. The bike is lightweight, easy to use, the shifters work flawlessly, and very durable.
