Could not recommend this more. I have been eying this up for a while now (infact for about 8 months!).
Pros: Excellent grip on road, extreemely light frame (for its price anyways), glides well and effotless movement for uphilling.
Cons: a bit too light for me, nearly fell off trying to indicate on my first proper ride with it, breaks to a ride or two to get used to as they were just that bit too tight. All I needed to do was adjust them for my grip.
Final verdict: Excellent for price. Fantastic speeds!
