I had a shop assembly it - HIGHLY recommended even if you have a passing familiarity with bike maintenance.

Great deal on a bike that is upgradable and pretty quick as is.

I didn't know if the (fairly) reasonable price meant that the quality would suffer, but it doesn't. This is a great bike. Very light, strong and with a little know how (or a friendly bike shop repair man) can be assembled in a couple of hours. I've upgraded the crank set to a Shimano Ultegra and may do the same for a few other little bits to treak it, but I highly recommend this cool looking machine. Buy it, buy it, buy it...

Great deal on a bike that is upgradable and pretty quick as is. It's a great bike for a beginner. As for service, the bike was packed well and came quickly, great to be able to make a hassle free purchase online.

Color Name: Matte BlackSize Name: 57 cm
Owned the bike for one week now and think its great! Have matched it with some 105 pedals and shoes and have been able to climb higher and go farther and faster. Had to bring it to a pro bike shop as the derailleur cables are a bit tricky but only charged me $60. put some continental gatorskins on as well as I live in the SW and there are plenty of thorns. As with other reviews this is an amazing machine and will definitely step up your training if your out of shape like me. I'm 6' 0" and fit well on the 57 with the seat post all the way down. Of note the aero bars are different and take a little getting used to going down steep hills. May want to get the traditional setup.

I love it. Kestrel has always been one of my favorite brands.The body style with the matte finish is nice and really stands out from other bikes. The shifting with the 105 is perfect. All the other out of box components are pretty good. I had one issue with the tires and had to change them out.

First bike owner, first bike I bought. Believe everything they say about the bike in the reviews - it's awesome. Two things I would recommend: MAKE SURE YOU GET FITTED! The 52CM bike frame was actually fine for me, but I did have to saw off a bit of the seatpost in order to have it lowered enough for my frame. It was extremely close to not being the right fit, but the authorized Kestrel dealer I went to helped a ton.

my only gripe is that with 50 miles on the bike, I have had two flats already. definitely going to invest in a pair of gatorskins.

Really nice bike. If you dont have experience with bikes remember you have to assemble and tune it or take to a shop.
