I hope YOU know how the R2000si is, seeing as how you've committed to it.

If you've already taken the plunge, you must think it's great. You're not going to get any advice here that's better than you're own intuition.

Have fun with it. Don't look back.

I just got mine yesterday so I cannot offer longterm impressions, but it's a great stiff aluminum bike, however the carbon fork and curved seatstays make it more comfortable than my old raleigh R600. I testrode a Fuji Team and a Kestrel Talon while trying to decide and the Fuji's frame was more compliant, but I didn't like the fork. The Kestrel offered a more plush ride but was $400 more expensive and the wheels weren't as nice.
Enjoy yours,

Actually the '02 BA is not all Ultegra. It has a 105 BB, chain and cassette. The remainder is Ultegra.

Early models of '02 BA, such as mine, has TTT stem and bars instead of Bontrager and Lemons seatpost instead of Bontrager. The early models also came with Axial Pro tires instead of whatever they are putting on them now (Contis maybe ?)

My wife has had an r2000si for over 1 year. It has been a great investment. She loves it. I have and r4000si and I too love mine. We came over from steel and heard all the negatives about aluminum. They are very comfortable!!!!
