Comments:

This was my first purchase for a serious road bike to ride with others that have been riding for quite some time at cat 3 and below level. They guys at BC took really good care to fit me which makes a HUGE diff in enjoying your ride. Regular shifting to harder gears is very smooth. On hill climbs and when I need it most, it is quite difficult to always downshift and I end up in a half gear quite often. I am chalking this up to riding this for 4 months straight, everyday for at least an hour with no adjustments. I have had ZERO issues with this ride! No derailments, no chain drops, no flat tires, no loose spokes....NADA. Spectacular performance for my purchase. Would recommend this to anyone. Would suggest keeping the gear adjustments checked as the chain begins to wear and think about lighter wheels if you have the money to spend
