Good customer service. I'm still riding a 13yr old Eddie Merckx Titanium frame (built by Litespeed) with Campy Chorus/Record gruppo. My Mtn Bikes have kept more updated as I still race and need the performance and technology of the newer bikes. My race bike this year is a CF Specialized S Works Epic that comes in at 22.3 lbs for full suspension. My road bike is 19lbs but the Specialized feels faster...CF is awesome.
