A perennial pick for Bicycling magazine’s Editor’s Choice award for Best Recreational Road Bike (with a win in 2010), we didn’t rest on our laurels for 2012—this year’s bike is even better, with the frame upgraded to include FSA’s PF30 system and kitted out with Shimano’s 10-speed 105 road group to (bring you more bang for the buck).
To be frank, the Comp will likely always be a contender for awards and accolades from picky magazine editors. We don’t cut corners trying to get to market with the least expensive carbon fiber frame. The mid-modulus carbon frame receives our Dyad Plus fiber lay-up, tri-oval shaped top and down tubes in size-specific diameters for optimal ride tuning, and the power-enhancing stiffness of a BB30 OS bottom bracket shell. Add asymmetrical chainstays and a full carbon, hollow-crown monocoque fork and it’s clear: nobody else provides this much frame tech for so little green.��
