Anyone tried one of these, seem pretty good spec frame for the money? (Thinking about this or the Giant SCR1's replacement)

What are the wheels like, I didnt like the alex's on the marin I had and switched to mavic aksium, though with winter weather now here I might go for a less thin profile. I've never use s-bars before - do I have to be crouched to brake, or can I sit more upright?

Curious. Cheers lads and lasses. :)
