"A good bike overall and I would purchase it again. It is a good first 'real' triathlon bike because it is not just a road bike with clip on aerobars like some bikes marketed as triathlon bikes are. It has a somewhat steeper seat tube angle at 76 degrees to help conserve your hamstrings for the run and bar end shifters so you can stay aero while shifting gears."cndce


Because this bike was from bikes direct, it was only partially assembled. It was somewhat difficult to assemble and get everything working smoothly.


No problems yet. Although, it was making a creaking noise when I first purchased it, but I determined that the factory had not greased the steering tube. I greased it and the creak was gone.


I got size 49cm and I am 5'4.5", it seems to fit me well.


It is a triathlon bike so it is stiffer then a regular road bike. I thought I was going to feel more road vibration than I do and I am very pleased with how it rides. I have ridden name brand expensive tri bikes that were much more uncomfortable than this.


so far so good


For the components the price cannot be beat.


Black and red, no funky surprises, overall pleasing to the eye.


I had it professionally tuned up after I put it together and it rides and shifts nicely.

good color scheme, fairly comfortable ride, good price, good components

Difficult to put together and get shifting smoothly (probably due to my inexperience in putting bikes together), but it is a good investment in my oppinion to have a bike shop check it over once you have put it together and make sure everything is shifting as smooth as possible.
