Strengths:    Zero 7: The power transfer to the wheels is tremendous - feels like you're almost directly connected to the road. Quick handling but still stable at high speed, very comfortable, super light. Gorgeous in person.

Weaknesses:    Price - not a cheap frame...

Bottom Line:   
Switched from a Litespeed to the Zero 7, and it instantly made me a better rider. The Litespeed was a reasonably stiff frame, but the Zero is crazy. The connection to the wheels is so directl, it almost feels like you're running when climbing - every watt gets to the wheels.

It's also ridiculously light, although that wasn't the primary reason i bought it - more on that later. Built it with Dura Ace because that's what I had handy, and am running Mavic Carbones - total bike weight is about 15.5.

I bought it because of the described power transfer, and because it still isn't harsh even with all that stiffness. After a few long rides, it has felt great the whole way.

I have one warning about the frame - buy one of the K Edge chain guides to make sure the chain doesn't get into the frame. It's a carbon frame, and doesn't like it...

And BTW, shout out to Competitive Cyclist, great purchase experience with them!

Kind of a random question, but are the bearings used in the ZS-standard headsets of a standardized dimension? In other words, can the bearings that come from one manufacturer's ZS ... Read More »

A new arrow in the quiver. CX-Zero

It's not really a "spy shot" if you take the photo with permission, but here's something hot out of the oven for you. Apologies for the seatpost in the sky and the small chain ring, but I wanted to snap this quick before it floated away. [ATTACH=CONFIG]282747[/ATTACH]Read More »
