I've had the bike out a couple times on the track now... My main fear was the seatpost slipping as some have experienced. I am happy to report there has been no seatpost slipping. Initially I didn't use carbon assembly paste and it creaked like mad. I went back and put assembly paste on both the seatpost and the collar (the collar is also carbon), and the creaks went away. It's a solid bike.
