"I loved the bike so much, when I purchased my "super bike" I stayed with QR."kaburns1214


Bike was originally assembled at the LBS. Home maintenance on the bike isn't particularly difficult, the only issue is that all the cables are routed internally, which can be a little tricky.


My Tequilo has almost 4 years and 11,000 miles on it and the frame is still is great shape. Note this bike has a hollow aluminum frame rather than a complete carbon fiber frame. I've changed out the drive train and crank (originally Dura Ace, now SRAM Red) but that was expected given the amount of use on the bike. The bike has traveled from CT to FL, KY and AZ among other places and has held up beautifully.


The bike was professionally fit at FitWerx in Vermont (as a side note FitWerx and Ian are fantastic). There's a good amount of adjust-ability in the bike, which allows for a wide range of fits.


Once I changed out the stock saddle (I now ride a Cobb V Max) and had the bike fit, its incredibly comfortable. This winter I've been able to ride it for 4 plus hours on the trainer.


As I said previously, there's a good amount of adjust-ability in the bike, which allows for a wide range of fits. In addition its easy to make at-home adjustments (although once its been professionally fit I wouldn't recommend re-adjusting).


Four years, 11,000 miles and still going strong. I just purchased a 2011 CD.01 (after my positive experience with the Tequilo, I decided to stay with QR) but the Tequilo now lives on as my Computrainer bike.


This was solid, reasonably priced entry-level triathlon bike. It definitely served me well for my first five years in the sport.


Its black and silver. Nice and subtle.


I never had to use QR customer service, so that's probably a good thing.


The bike has performed really well. Initially I thought I would sell the Tequilo once I purchased the CD.01, but I love it too much and decided to keep both.

Solid, well performing entry to mid-level triathlon bike. QR is a good company and good bike designs.

Its aluminum. If your looking for carbon fiber, its not going to work.
