Litespeed T5 Frames

5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

2013 Litespeed T5 is a Century Rider's Dream Bike! Coming from the shadows of the 2012 Xicon, the 2013 Litespeed T5 will match and 1-up both the comfort and performance of last year's frame. The geometry is design around the idea of comfort and stability, made for any rider that is tired of the tiny head tubes. However, the greatest thing is... There has been no lost to performance! In fact, that too is improved. Similar to its big brothers, T1 and T3, the T5 is build with both the PF30 bottom bracket and the 44mm oversized headtube. These will give you the extra edge when trying to catch that young rider in font of you. Features: -Frame: T3 Technology - Tapered, Shaped, Oversized 3Al/2.5V tubing. -Sizes: XS, S, M, ML, L, XL -Available Colors: Bright Brushed (Removeable Decals) -Head Tube: Oversized 44mm, Tapered Fork Compatable -Weight: 1500 Grams -Geometry: Larger headtube for added hand height -Hand Made In USA

Strengths:    This Frame & Fork has an almost magical ride on dirt or gravel roads, mostly due to the thin rear seatstays & when used in conjunction with a 25 mm Thomson Seatpost & 38mm tyres. It seems to soak up the bumps and provides a smooth ride on undulating surfaces.

Weaknesses:    Not very lightweight, even with a high quality component build. Expensive to purchase. !

Bottom Line:   
If you require a "do it all" Frame & Fork which will last you a lifetime & have deep pockets you may want to consider this Frame & Fork. The finish & Quality of the Frame & Fork are of the highest order, & 1 year in I still relish riding my Litespeed. In conclusion then High Quality comes at a price but once you finish your dream build expect countless years of Superb Riding.

Strengths:    Very stiff yet still able to provide a smooth ride

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
My first Ti ride and I have to say this bike is a dream to ride. Not sure how it provides an extremely stiff platform under load (I am 195 lbs) yet be able to soak up the road bumps. I think the 44mm head tube and PF30 BB have to do something to increase stiffness and the seat stays and Ti materials do it for compliance. I love this bike! My Cannondale Supersix HiMod has been idle since I built this thing up. Great job Litespeed!
