A great entry to the road bike experience. The Peloton comes with an attractive frameset and smooth riding characteristics. The Aero Flex Stays – cross-ovalized thin seat tubes for high riding comfort – deliver lateral stiffness while being aerodynamic. Internal cable routing saves weight, is dirt proof and has a clean look. RFR geometry with relaxed and comfortable riding position makes riding out of saddle safe and easy while maintaining agile handling. The Superlight 6061 aluminum tubing is double butted and mechanically formed. The CUBE CSL Race Carbon fork with tapered aluminum steerer is lightweight, stiff and delivers great steering precision.

A few quick facts:

Because it's become abundantly clear that the pro-peloton are aware of us;
More accurately, dear people applauding Bradley Wiggins for his foul-mouthed tirade today:
I'd like to outline why I think you're all massive hypocrites, and why you get the reaction from people that you do.

1) a channeled saddle
I watch a fair amount of races -- certainly not all of them, but I do watch. I don't remember ever seeing a pro cyclist with a tattoo or one sitting on a saddle with a hole in it.
Why? Are all a pack of steel-tainted choirboys? Is there some anti-tattoo policy th ... Read More »
