I test rode the Iseo a few weeks ago when I was looking for a new bike for myself and I actually liked it a lot. The riding position was great, it felt quick, it looks great, all of the components seemed good (although I'm no expert) and it was actually my second choice bike. Ultimately I went with the Specialized Sirrus Sport mainly because it is a bit lighter than anything else I had ridden. Definitely a nice bike though.
