Strengths:    Carbon Belt drive and internal hub, make for an extraordinarily quiet ride.

Frame has numerous mount points for racks and fenders.


Weaknesses:    Avid BB5 brakes are not up to the task. What is otherwise an incredibly quiet and tight ride, is interrupted by the noise of disks rubbing against the pads. I will need to replace the brakes.

The Belt drive eliminates the ability to have a quick release on the rear wheel. This makes repairing flats a bit more challenging.

The bike does not come with fenders. A must for the serious commuter. The fenders offered by Civia do not fit properly. The left front fender stay must be bent so that it doesn't interfere with the disk brake. I bought fenders from Electra

Weight. This bike is heavy, even for a commuter.

Handle bar drop is abnormally deep. I replaced the bars.


Bottom Line:   
The Bryant has the potential to be a great commuter bike for the most vigorous commutes. The belt drive and Shimano Alphine internal 8 speed hub combine for an extraordinarily silky smooth and quiet drive system.

The bike is on the heavy side, but still acceptable for a solid commuter.

The Avid BB5 brakes are a deal breaker. For $1750, the bike should come with brakes that work. Plan on replacing them if you purchase this bike.

With a a proper set of brakes this bike could double as a touring bike. Anyone that is looking for a quality commuter or touring bike should consider the Bryant.

So Why did Nike drop LA and not Kobe Bryant or Tiger Woods?

Would like to hear all points of views regarding this comparison. Was it because Kobe and Tiger were just womenizers/adulterers (same for Bill Clinton), and men in the US in general are ok with womenizers and adulterers? I wonder if Nike's action mirror that of the sentiments of men in general? i ... Read More »
