Welcome sullyboo. I just bought the same bike about two months ago. I think you and I are the only ones that have it. Haven't seen anyone else talk about it. I'm pretty happy with it so far except the back dérailleur is going a little fluky on me. Started jumping gears when I shifted. Not sure it wasn't maybe a dirty chain issue as I cleaned the chain and it has gotten a little better. Only other issue I have with it is that it is a pretty heavy bike. My son just bought a 1.2 trek and that thing is a light as a feather.
Anyway, welcome aboard. Let me know how you like the bike after a few months. Too bad the season is almost over, at least for me. I'm not a 365 rider. My handle should have been fair weather rider.
