Opus did some amazing things with aluminum to craft the Andante 2. The frame's tubes are specifically sized to deliver strength and compliance where they’re needed most. The huge bottom bracket offers stiffness for quick acceleration, the longer chainstays deliver shock absorption, and the tapered carbon fork gives you front-end rigidity and turn-on-a-dime handling. Shimano's value-packed 20-speed Tiagra drivetrain is powered by hill-conquering Shimano cranks. And, down where the rubber meets the road, a pair of Alex wheels with Vittoria Zaffiro tires roll fast and light. Finishing it off, the quality Opus bar, stem, saddle and carbon post add even more to the mix.
