The gearing is fine. I got the triple. The tires are fine as well. They are heavier duty specialized tires. I once road from Vancouver, through the Canadian rockies and back on sew-ups without a flat, so I'm not really worried. Also, it really isn't geometry of the bike that makes the ride of this bike unique, it is the inserts. They really dampen the ride without completely diluting responsiveness. There is really no easy way to discribe the ride with actually getting on the bike. It is the best I've ever felt after riding 100 miles.

What worries me is the carbon and as has been stated here the stress on the stays pulling the bob. And, to worry me even more I wonder if the inserts that I love so much will further weaken the frame under load...
