I have put about 600 miles and 40,000 ft of climbing on the bike. The bike is super quick off the line, climbs very well and descends like a fiend. The carbon wheels are super stiff both vertically and laterally and have zero issues with stopping power or heating with heavy use. (Just be sure to use the proper pads) Bottom Bracket and stays are also very stiff where needed to put the power down. The short wheelbase makes the bike handle very well in most situations but tends to want to swap ends over bumps at high speed. (Its only real vice) 700x25 tires makes the ride very smooth and grippy so bumps are less of an issue than with other bikes. Ultegra r8000 build kit is very solid and performs very well. Direct Mount Brakes are the only swap in the build kit but they are paired well with the carbon wheels. Most would be OK with Compact Crank but a potential upgrade is to purchase the chainrings to convert to a standard crankset.
