Valdora PHX

"This is my first tri-bike, but it is a great bike at a great price. I recommend checking out a Valdora if you are shopping for a tri-bike!"Mikeylee

Ease of use

This bike came ready to go. Pete, the owner of Valdora, even installed my bottle cages for me! :)

Quality of Construction

I am very impressed with the quality of this bike. Quality components (Ultegra deraileurs and FSA crank and brakes) were used through out, and the frame is solid and light. My XL Valdora Phx is lighter than my wife's small QR Seduza! I am a big guy (230 pounds) and I feel no flex when I really get on it going up a hill!

Fit

I am 6'6", 230 pounds and have trouble finding anyting to fit me well. I was advised I would fit he Valdora Phx based on some fit measurements I sent them. My bike was set-up based on those measurements and was very close to a perfect fit! My fitter made a couple of adjustments, but those were just minor comfort adjustments.

Comfort

Before I rode this bike, I could not imagine a tri-bike being comfortable. This bike lets me stretch out just the correct amount. I am looking forward to doing my first Ironman (IMAZ '13) on my Valdora Phx!

(5)

Adjustability

It was readily adjustable to fit my large size with no crazy adjustments or adaptations.

(5)

Durability

While I have not had the bike long and am not a power rider, It handles my size without as much as a sneeze. I think I will be riding this bike for a long time!

(5)

Value

I shopped around a bit before getting a fit and selecting this bike. For the quality of the frame and componentry, no other bike came even close in value!

(5)

Appearance

It is just beautiful...and it is the basic paint job. :)

(5)

Customer Service

Pete, the owner of Valdora was incredibly patient when listening to and answering my many questions via email and in person. I had a couple of issues which were not the bike's or Valdora's fault at all, and Pete was quick with practical answers to get the problem fixed asap!

(5)

Performance

This bike feels solid and responsive. I does what I ask it to when I ask it. I doubt I will never outgrow this bike, and would probably only sell it to move up to a higher end Valdora! Also, this bike seems much more stable than what I have heard from other tri-bike riders.

Strengths

Value, componentry, support, and it easily fits and supports a big guy like me.

Weakness

None that I have found.
