Love riding this bike. Everything is super smooth. Shifts smoothly, rolls smoothly. I ride roughly 14 miles a day. On weekends I go on longer rides.

Super Cross!

Pros:
Handles Well, Fast, Good Geometry, Lightweight
Cons:
Uncomfortable Seat
Best Uses:
Serious Training, Racing
Bought my Boone last year and love it. Super fast, comfortable (that pivot point actually works really well), and the fit felt great. Definitely the lightest cross bike bike I've owned. The saddle was the only let down, I had to swap that out for a Fizik after the first ride. My LBS was super helpful though.

awesome Allrounder

Pros:
Stylish, Durable, Lightweight, Quality
Cons:
Brakes, Seat
Best Uses:
Commuting, Exercising, Competition, Comfort
The Boone 5 is the Best bike I have ever owned! It is lightweight, the quality is very good and it has upscale components (never can go wrong with a 105). It rides very easy, I use it for exercising, on- and offroad capabilities are awesome. The only con I found so far are the brakes, they are a bit weak and would need some upgrading. Other than that: great Allrounder and good bang for the buck in the Carbon section.

Great Bike for EVERYTHING!!

Pros:
Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
This is one of the most comfortable bikes I have ridden. The Isospeed really smooths out the trail and bumps in the road. The bike is equipped with 105 and although it's not as smooth as my Ultegra road bike it works and shifts well. Wheels I had set up tubeless and drops a little weight. I'm sure I could save some additional weight by upgrading the wheels but this is an entry level Carbon bike so I would expect to lighten it up with component changes.
