Best bike purchase I’ve made in years! I was considering the steel version but I decided that I wanted a race-worthy bike for traveling so I plunked down the extra dough and went for the ti-carbon. It is BEAUTIFUL, it rides like a dream, and packing it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it might be. I raced a three-day stage race on it and the bike felt totally rock solid climbing, descending, and sprinting. The first time I packed the bike it took me about 45 minutes because I was carefully following the directions, but now I can pack it in about 30 minutes. I was a bit nervous that I’d get charged on the flight because the box is technically 2" too big, but I’ve done two flights so far and they haven’t measured it. United is about to raise the cost of checking a bike to $100 each way, and at this price it doesn’t take long for the frame to pay for itself. One of the other big benefits is that you don’t have to rent a big car when you get to your destination.
