This is the Kestrel Legend Ultegra Road Bike. At a mere 780 grams, the brand-new Kestrel Legend is the lightest frame The First Name in Carbon Fiber has ever produced. Made of ultra high-modulus carbon fiber with a remarkable weight-to-stiffness ratio, the Legend’s Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness; the proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness; and asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle. Features: Featherweight 780 grams – lightest frame Kestrel has ever produced Ultra high-modulus and high-strength carbon fiber with ground-breaking weight-to-stiffness ratio PU inner molds supply smoother inner walls, an increase in stiffness, better compaction, minimized wrinkles, and optimized resin content EPS foam forming used in the manufacturing of the fork provides better layup in the crown area for improved compaction and resin content Kestrel EMS fork and H-stays provide compliance, comfort, and improve lateral stiffness Proprietary tapered head tube enhances steering precision and front-end stiffness Asymmetrical chainstays offset drivetrain-induced torque on the rear triangle Size-specific frame for each frame size. Larger frames use slightly larger diameter tubing for increased stiffness for larger riders. Downtube and top tube wrap around the head tube for increased front-end stiffness, which aids in steering precision. Shorter head tube for competition geometry and an aggressive riding position that pro-level competitors demand BB30 is 18 stiffer than the RT-900
Diamondback advocates strongly for more riders on American roads, especially commuters, and its Haanjo bike line offers riders with a wide range of budgets the opportunity to get outside more. With dependable components and comfort-minded geometry, the Haanjo Complete Bike is a wallet-friendly way to log more miles on the bike and less in the car.Diamondback starts with a reliable 6061-T6 aluminum frame, which is a treated version of aluminum that provides an ideal blend of low weight and strength. A larger head tube angle than traditional road bikes allows you to stay more upright as you navigate bike lanes and traffic lights, and the endurance geometry hopes to create less tension in your neck and shoulders, especially as you ride to work with a full commuting backpack. Flat bar handlebars will keep the Haanjo feeling more stable than it would with road drop bars, and together with the Gravel Disc alloy fork, allow for smooth and consistent steering over a variety of road and off-road surfaces. Shimano’s 9-speed drivetrain and compact Tiagra cassette offer a wide range of gear ratios and promise straightforward, consistent functionality whether you’re commuting to work or heading out on a weekend bike path ride. The Haanjo is well-equipped to handle gravel and smooth dirt tracks in addition to rough roads with its aptly-named 40c Kenda Happy Medium tires, and for the days when the weather decides to wait until after your commute starts to turn nasty, you’ll have Avid disc brakes to provide reliable stopping power in a pinch.
If you spend a few minutes browsing through our copy, then you probably know that we’re not exactly purists when it comes to cycling kit. Sure, we occasionally privilege traditional designs and styles over the latest trends in tube shapes and colorways, but we’re open-minded about adopting new technologies when they suit our purposes – especially when a manufacturer applies the latest fancy technology to the basics of cycling. More than almost any other bike we stock, the Aernario Basic Shimano Ultegra Complete Road Bike is one of the best blends of tradition, innovation, and solid build kit that we’ve rolled through our shop doors. For the frameset, Storck used Computer Flow Dynamics to tease aerodynamic tube shapes out of a geometry that balances the low-weight aggression of compact frames with a nod to the more cantankerous, classic-geometry purists among us. Though it’s subtle, the wind-dodging design is inherited from Storck’s time trial frames, so it’s both invisible to the eye and the wind. And since the module’s overall shape and design borrows heavily from the Fascenario 0. 7, the aerodynamic benefits don’t come with the usual tradeoff of poor handling and unforgiving road feel. When viewing the frame from the side, it looks like a traditional road frame. However, if you were to take a cross section, its aero shape would become strikingly evident. These shapes are laid-up with Storck’s own CFR/UD unidirectional carbon fiber. This curated material is the main reason why Storck has so many BOTY awards from the German cycling industry, as the unidirection orientation of the fibers mean that the sheets can be situated for targeted load-bearing properties. This lets Storck stiffen the frame without sacrificing damping qualities and – paradoxically – while using less material for a lower overall weight. The Aernario features a massive, oversized PressFit BB86 bottom bracket juncture in order to boost power transfer even further, and the seatstays connect.
