"This bike is the best I've ever ridden and I've been riding for about 40 years. It accelerates fast, exhibits unparalleled handling, climbing ability, and stability in fast downhills. I ride with racers and other fast recreational riders as well as longer distant rides (100-150 miles) averaging over 5000 miles a year. This bike does it all." -sct4401

Features

The R230 was designed specifically for the rider who wants a do-all, multi-use road frame. The oversized downtube offers exceptional stiffness along with confident handling. The semi-compact geometry provides plenty of stand-over height and a rider position suitable for all day rides or competitive events. By curving and ovalizing the seat stays, an added level of rider comfort has been designed into this frame without sacrificing performance.

The R230 is the perfect frame for the club rider looking to take their riding to the next level and for the enthusiast with more spirited or aggressive riding style. However for this rider, comfort is still a priority. The force-specific shaping in the main triangle allows a firm bottom bracket and front end for excellent acceleration, climbing and high-speed stability. The competition-tuned rear triangle on the R230 provides a balance of stiffness and comfort. Throw a leg over the R230 and understand what performance titanium is all about.
