I have another Kestrel bike, the Talon SL road/tt and love. I had it set up in the road configuration and would go back and forth from road to tt. So got tired of doing this and decided to get a new road bike and keep the SL for tri's. Love the new RT1000 with the 105. Just changed the brakes to 105's and put some Oval 535's on. Bike rides very smoothly and you cant beat this price.
