Contend 1 LS is very light (for me at least), slick, fast, yet flexible, accelerates very nicely.
Comes with basic pedals, which allowed to use it straight away
Could have some marks, handle bar adjustment control, etc, so to make sure it is all i 90 degrees angle, etc.
Gear probably needs some adjustments still? I Can't see why Shimano 105 meant to be so good and pricey, as it does not feel any better than lower grade gear?
