Ouch Big Bopper , thats a painful first race report ! If it have been me the bike may have gone over a hedge and I would have become a cp again. !

Another golfer Laughing , we should all tag a game of golf onto the end of the London Tri. Now that would be interesting, doubt whether I'd have enough energy to lift a club though.

THis is an awesome bike! at a pretty good price...

The frame is very lightweight, and 'compact' in geometry, which is v popular at moment - uses less material, increased stiffness etc..

Gears are top notch, identical to Dura Ace (Tour de France level) just a few 100g heavier

Wheels are solid, not true race wheels, but can take a bashing..

I ride the Giant equivelent of this, and cant fault it - IF IT FITS! if your at sigma, theyl fit you so no worries, but this really is the No 1 first thing u should do when getting a bike - make sure it fits
