Weaknesses: Saddle was not right for me, matte finish is impossible to keep clean. Shifter lever for rear derailuer sticks sometimes (won't release back). Slightly annoying but never an issue to pull it back in when it happens. I haven't been bothered enough to pull the cable and see if I can clear it.
I paid $1500 and have ridden for almost 2 years, many miles, many climbs. I keep up with all the guys on much more expensive bikes. This is my first road bike since an old steel panasonic frame I inherited many years ago so not much to compare to. The carbon smooths out the road, it feels stiff when climbing or accelerating, decends like a champ and I just don't see how switching to a much more expensive bike is going to get me anything but poorer. Absolutely reccomend this bike. Looking at Sette mountain bikes to add a 29er to the quiver.
Searched the forums for reviews of the new Sette road bikes. I know that in general companies like Sette leave a bitter taste in some people's mouths. However, this bike looks great, and the deal can't be beat. Any one have a Primo or Forza?Read More »
