unknown Element Six Road Road Bike

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $800.00


Product Description

I took a chance and bought this frame and put this together for my first good road bike. It's a size medium, and weighs under 15.5lbs with cages, pedals, saddle, and full saddle bag and gps mount. Beat that for 2200 bucks. And, the frame is not only comfortable, but it's fast. Super rigid, climbs awesome. Icing on the cake: they were awesome to work with, totally helpful with any questions etc.

Strengths:    -Instant reaction speed (think and this bike will move)
-Price
-Stability (I can definitely feel the road, yet I know I am safe on this frame)
-Speed.


Weaknesses:    Frame might run a little small for larger riders. If you have a longer torso, I'd recommend considering a size up.

Bottom Line:   
I bought an Element Six from a local bike shop in Hawaii last year. The bike had been a custom built as a training cycling for a famous Triathlete (whose name shall be omitted). He had used it briefly, but decided to sell it to this store.
I was searching for a carbon fiber frame and this seemed like the cheapest option. A few days later I did a climbing race from sea level to 9,200 ft. The Element Six tackled the volcano like a boss.
