That frame is stiff enough - and as said - wont hold anyone back in Cat 3-4-5 level competition (US categories ), but it does look like it has relaxed all-rounder type geometry in those photos compared to a more sprint oriented machine

So while the bike itself wont hold most novices back too much --there are probably more task oriented machines out there for not a lot of coin
