This bike is about perfect for me, as I generally prefer longer, slower rides with hills. I am not interested in compact gearing or that hunkered-over position, so (1) I got a triple, and I can go up any hill without hating it or killing my knees, and (2) the geometry is such that I am more upright than hunkered over, which is comfortable and allows me to look around now and then. I can ride on gravel for miles without my hands going numb because the carbon absorbs the bumps and vibrations. I have about 7,000 miles on this bike. My only regret about it is that I can't use it for touring because you can't attach heavy-duty racks to the carbon frame.
I'm a newbie and this is my first bike so I don't have a lot to compare. I had neck/spinal surgery 2.5 years ago (ACDF) and my Dr. said "NO MORE RUNNING." I was immediately drawn to the claims of comfort with this model. I have had the bike for 6 weeks and love it. I am doing 25-30 miles every other day. My speed average is up to 18mph and I am experiencing no neck/back pain. Although I don't really have anything to compare it to, but it feels to me like it does absorb the ride. I can very much feel the carbon seat post flex and the bike seems to take bumps nicely. Both Squirrels I have run over did not fair well, but only felt like little bumps to me.
I purchased this bike from High Road about 2 months ago, and have put enough miles on it that I feel confident in recommending it. From the first time I test rode it, I knew it would be a good fit. I've been on several 3-4 hour rides since then, and this machine performs splendidly. It is comfortable, fast, and very responsive. I had been riding a Trek hybrid before this, and wanted a machine that would allow me to go farther and faster, and that is exactly what's happened. The saddle is very comfortable, as is the riding geometry. I'm high enough to avoid straining my back and allow me to see traffic, but I'm low enough that I feel I can aggressively tackle the pavement ahead. Fast, smooth, and sexy!
WOW...I've been looking to get a Roadie for sometime..Mt.Biking for 20years so as for what I say if your a hardcore Roadie comments might not apply. I didn't think I the first 10 miles of riding that I was going that much faster since every so often I will take my MT.Bike to the streets. That was until I settled in and let the bike do the work. After that I was totally hooked. This bike rides like its as smooth as my MT.Bike on ruff chip seal roads yet put the hammer down and it flat rips. I was alittle nervous about getting a full on race platform so I opted for what was advertised as the best..fast and plush ride. The bike is very responsive and turns much tighter..going fast than I expected..I really can't imagine most people spending more for a bike and expecting better overall feel and performance..sure you could get lighter wheels( if you were racing) but to just get on a bike and hammer the streets with the condition most cities are in for 2 or 3 hours this bike is truly inspiring. Just writing my first ride thoughts makes me what to get back on it. I never would have thought a Road bike could win me over..THIS WAS JUST TO BE A TRAINING THING FOR MT.BIKING...I'm hooked by speed, comfort, and just look at it...sexy
