Somehow theres always one that has such a bad time of it he gives it next to nothing in score terms.I usually dismiss such reviews as for the most part theyre badly reviewed deducting points for silly reasons but this chap has it spot on about the levers being plastic/carbon.Lever ends can and do come into contact with the ground and i would think that because of that they should be metal/alloy :?
imho of course :)

Isnt this the same system as USE spin stix?

Got meself a road bike.

Just been out for a quick spin round the block, well a couple of miles, in the dark.

First impressions are it's light, I'm going to take a while to get back into that riding position, and it's a fair bit faster than I am. I could feel it wanting to fly on any slight downhill sections.

I'll get out properly tomorrow and see how I get on.

I used to do that sort of road stuff years ago before I had a mountain bike. I reckon I'll stick with it.

It is indeed. Even says it in extra large letters down the side. And it's modern.

Rubbish mud clearance though. and the tyres are a bit bald.

Edit.
