"Great value in a tri bike with smooth ride & stable, predictable handling. "Oldteen


Ease of installation

Set-up by bike shop


Ease of use

Very smooth ride & solid handling for a tri bike. Stable ride.


Quality of Construction

Solid feel on the straights, but (as expected) not as sharp on turns as a good road rice bike.



Fairly "tall" geometry with relatively high head tube. Riders who like low position with big drop (saddle-to-bars) may need to replace the stock bars. I went with slightly larger size to help compensate. I found the sl tall geometry to be very comfortable for long bike legs (inc my 1st ironman).



Smoothest ride I've seen in serious tri bike. Stock Fizik tri saddle is very popular & solid, but I swapped out for a Cobb (personal preference).



See Fit above. To get low saddle position might have to trim the seat tube, but that's minor issue.



No trouble in almost 3 yrs of riding typically bad Midwest US roads.



No better frame & groupo in this price class.



Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it looks fast ;)


Customer Service

C-dale always helpful when calling with questions about their products. No experience with warranty 'cause bike has been bulletproof.



Not a "superbike", but much more aero than typical in this price class.


Very comfortable ride with stable, predictable handling. Great value.


Slightly tall geometry. As with any bike, check how it fits YOU before you buy.
