I got this bike back in November and now have about 3 thousand miles on it. It is a great commuter bike and in fact I am thinking of getting another as a back up commuter. The only issue I have had with this bike is the rear brake cable routing. The opening is routed so it points up and allows water to get into the cable housing. Last winter when I was commuting to work at around 20degree weather it would freeze up. I found that if I tilted it up so the and actuated the rear brake cable after a rainy ride or washing that it would get the water out and then I would add some oil down the housing. It seemed to work.
This bike is exactly what I was looking for. There was one other bike that almost fit my specification but fell short on the cassette specs. the 11-32 10 spd cassette mated with the do-it-all 105 drivetrain allows me to travel through different terrain and conquer steep inclines. I was unsure how the Cable/hydraulic hybrid brake design would perform. But when I tested out multiple models for comparison, I found that the TRP HYRD Brake System far exceeded the performance of the other brake setups and my expectations. I replaced the stock tires with a CX vittoria nail file tread. My only recommended upgrade (I haven't done yet) are the brake cable housing to reduce the slight cable play but other than that it is a very good OEM setup. (Ill be investing in some yokozuna's :) ) This bike is so much fun to ride. I love it more than my carbon road bike and it also makes a very good training bike. If you are looking for an all around road bike that can go on pavement, dirt, gravel, etc. I would strongly recommend this bike.
I have been looking for a bike like this for quite sometime think I found it with the help of dave from the bike zone Greece ny
Got this bike dialed in very quickly. Rides fast and smooth and great for going off pavement when you need to.
I use this bike to commute to the train daily and get lost on the weekends. Im writing this review after 3 days of ownership because im convinced its a great product. This is an upgrade from my Fuji cross bike that was slowly falling apart ( only 2 years old ). This bike looks awesome and performs well. The brakes are absolutely fantastic. The ability to feather the braking power between medium-full power just does not exist on other systems i have tried. Adding in the groupset upgrades and cool looks and I think I have found my dream machine. Tim @ VillageCycle worked with me for two days to answer a billion questions I had as I worked through the decision. Excellent service and good sale prices.
