Carbon fiber is all the rage these days for thoroughbred road machines, but how quickly one forgets the magic that is aluminum. Enter the Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike, complete with absolutely superb Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed components plus Mavic wheels and tires. All-in-all it’s a no-nonsense aluminum steed that’s good to go out of the box for racing, fondos, spirited group rides, or just fast riding whenever you feel so inclined. A well-crafted aluminum frame is nearly as light, plenty stiff, built to last, and puts a much smaller dent on your bank account. The Cavalo Corsa road bike sports a custom-butted aluminum frame with sculpted tubes and a tapered 1 & x215B;” to 1 ” headtube that rides and performs like your very own pocket rocket. There’s a carbon fork with the corresponding tapered aluminum steerer tube that inspires confidence courtesy of its rock solid and utterly predictable handling. Gram for gram, dollar for dollar, you’d be hard-pressed to find a finer choice than Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed and we’ve spec’d them where it counts: shift/brake levers, crankset, front derailleur, and rear derailleur. You’ll be blown away by how well this stuff works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brother Dura-Ace that Ultegra is a tour de force in its own right. The shifting is just perfect while the standard-sized 53/39T crankset coupled with an 11-28T Shimano 105 cassette provides a wide range of gears that still have minimal jumps from gear to gear. The crankset also features Shimano’s new four-arm construction and the beauty of this design is that the bolt circle is the same for standard sized and compact chainrings. If you ever want to make the move to compact it’s only a matter of swapping out the chainrings – no need to acquire a completely different crankset. French manufacturer Mavic is synonymous with high-performance wheels and their Aksium S wheelset is a stellar all-around performer. Their 2
The Fenix C20 Complete Road Bike is built to be the ultimate middle man in your cycling operation. It’s not as aerodynamic as the top-end Noah, but it weighs 170 grams less. It’s also not as light as the feathery Helium, but it’s a much smoother ride. In short, the Fenix C20 is the middle ground of Ridley’s line of bikes in all categories but one: comfort. Its unparalleled ride quality turns harsh roads to butter without sacrificing a watt of power. To keep you in the saddle all day, the Fenix C20 uses a vibration devouring blend of 30- and 24-ton unidirectional carbon fibers as opposed to the 50- to 60-ton moduli favored in only-weight-is-important frames. Potholes, cobblestones, and other road hazards are as smooth as crosswalk paint on the Fenix, but they may feel like taking repeated hammer blows to the kidneys on 60-ton carbon. The C20’s oversized bottom bracket and burly chainstays mean comfort doesn’t come at the cost of efficiency, though. If you ever get tired of wantonly running over obstacles, the stiff, tapered head tube nets responsive steering to dodge through debris with ease. The C20’s kit is a respectable affair all around, and it continues the theme of putting ride quality above flair. The Shimano 105 drivetrain and crankset deserve some special attention. Completely re-imagined for 2015, the new 105 boasts 11-speeds and a four-arm crankset. Evidently, it’s been dipping into the trickle-down basket and is enjoying some Ultegra technology. You’ll certainly enjoy the responsive shifting and incredible power transfer through the crankset, which is further highlighted by the Fulcrum Racing 7 LG wheelset. The Fenix’s frame means you won’t feel the road, but this mix of components means the road is certainly going to feel you.
