Opinions Please -- Litespeed Saber

I've been looking at the Saber and am interested in your impressions of the bike.

BTW, I have long legs and arms and a short torso. I normally ride a 55-57 road bike. Should I go down a size for a tri bike?

Thanks

Saber is a fine bike. I myself just down sized froma 56cm to 54 for my tri bike. There is a huge difference in how it feels. My road bike had a longish top tube 56.5 I could never get my position in the aero bars correct. The newer shorter TT is a blessing go for it...

the SAber is titanium? My old roady was also Ti.
