Strengths:    Very light and stiff. Really.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a BH Prisma 2011 model some weeks ago and I am still amazed. I'm riding it with full Campagnolo Athena and Campagnolo Vento Reaction wheels. The Prisma is far from being the most expensive bike from BH but still very stiff, light, responsive and climbs like a goat! I'm really happy with this bike so far and I'd definitely buy it again. :)

Strengths:    Latest tech: BB30, tapered steerer, carbon dropouts. KILLER looks! Tall head tube without the typical dorky look of 20mm of head tube above the top tube.

Weaknesses:    My BH Prisma is the Brit-specced 7.8 Ultegra version (purchased from Wiggle), and the bar, stem, and seatpost are "Titan," a brand unknown to me, but they seem pretty plebeian compared to the excellent Ultegra shift system and brakes. The FSA Gossamer crank also seems kinda low-end by comparison. The Shimano RS10 wheels seem very high quality and look great, but are on the heavy side.

Bottom Line:   
This is my first-ever carbon-framed bike, and only my 2nd road bike since returning to road riding after a 20-year hiatus. The bike this is replacing is a massively-upgraded Trek 1500, and the BH has really taken some getting-used-to. The biggest difference (and the one that nearly did me in) is the steering. The Trek's steering is slow and steady--you have to lead the bike around corners. By contrast I would describe the steering on the BH as "eager"--you just THINK about cornering, and the bike is already halfway around the bend!

Favorite Ride:   Verdi Loop

Price Paid:    $2006.00

Purchased At:   Wiggle.com

Similar Products Used:   Massively-upgraded Trek 1500

Bike Setup:   I swapped some of my favorite parts from the old Trek onto the Prisma: American Classic Sprint 350 wheels, Syntace Racelite carbon handlebar, FSA OS-99 stem, Selle Italia SLR saddle. With a SRAM Red 11-23 cassette and the stock 50-34 compact crank I get a higher high and a lower low than I got with the Dura Ace 12-25 cassette and 53-39 crank on the Trek.

Date Reviewed: October 24, 2011

Strengths:    Good mix of stiffness and comfort, great looking paint. BB30 and tapered fork, Ultegra group inc brakes. Great build and packaging by Wiggle

Weaknesses:    house brand stem, bar and seatpost, Shimano RS10 wheelset, Rubena tires, FSA Gossamer bb30 crank

Bottom Line:   
great deal on closeout from Wiggle.com in the UK, $100 to ship to the US. This is for the Prism 7.8 with Ultegra. Not as nicely spec'd as the US version, but a great deal.

DMT Prisma/Speedplay shoes

I just picked up a pair of these, and they're a bit lacking in instructions, and the DMT web site wasn't much help. Any idea what the cryptogram on the insole is indicating? And thinking about these more, seems like since the spring tension screws are used to mount the cleat to the shoe, they're b ... Read More »

New bike - BH Prisma

I'm not necessarily a beginner. Use to road ride some 20+yrs ago. I've been a MTB'er for a long time. Last year I decided to get back into road riding to supplement my MTB'ing. Last year I picked up a used '05 Trek 1200 to see if I'd enjoy road'ing again. Well after 1 summer, I got rid of the ... Read More »
