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...

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.

This bike is perfect! It's my first tri bike after riding and competing years on a road bike. I recommend this to any novice triathlete!

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.

Upgraded to SRAM Crankset and Shimano Ultegra cassette and F. Derailleur. Love the ride. Went up about 3 MPH over a 20 mile ride just by getting the bike. White Bar tape looks filthy nearly immediately so think about opting for another color soon!
Saddle is hard but otherwise great bike.
had mine a year. About 150 miles so far.

I'm in my second season of triathlon and decided to ditch my old steel-framed road bike (Surly).

This bike is a tremendous step-up! Fit and finish are beautiful and I can certainly tell the difference in geometry/weight/position on the road. Just completed my first olympic distance race using this bike and it performed admirably. Lots of adjusment/position options available to set it up like you want.

Supplied tires appeared kinda weak (Some Chinese off-brand of slicks), so I immediately replaced them with Gatorskins. Other than that no issues and I'm looking forward to using this bike for many seasons to come!
