Polygon Helios F500.

Hey guys, have been looking at offerings from Giant, Avanti, Azzuri, Trek, Apollo, etc, etc. Basically all brands in the sub $1,000 price range. Then, I found this. Has full Shimano 105 componentry and looks great. Best I've seen in this category. Your thoughts? Check out the video too - impressive.

The Carbon fork seems to have a Carbon steerer, not an alloy one like the reid, azzuri etc. Its lighter but its not idiot proof, you can break it by over-tightening it
