Model CGR-AL My bike was due to be delivered early May 2021 (ordered in Jan 2021) but to my surprise it arrived 3 months ahead of schedule. Not complaining -
It was easy to assemble and was completed in 30mins(still got teh box). But it was nearly three weeks before I had my first run out due to snow and Ice. (not that manic)
After 2 minutes I realised that I did actually need a new bike . It was a short 20 mile ride but I threw most things at it - steep hills,up and down, puddles mud, mushy leaves, cobbles and in some traffic. I actually made a mistake when I ordered the bike as I thought I had changed to the wider tyres but it came with 35mm. That said I attacked a couple of slippy corners and it took it well. The rolling resistance on the road was probably better because of that through. The Tiagra kit is fantastic and it made gear changes with efficient ease. The ride position is very comfortable for a bike I had never sat on before buying(first time on the web) My only reservation was with the brakes(mechanical). They were ok and I felt safe and I am hoping that they will bed in after a few more rides.
The worries I had were not justified and so far I am delighted with the performance and the overall build. One note disappointed I did not get a bell as I left that on my old bike.
Great bike - taken it on the Preston Guild for first ride and it handled multiple terrains with ease from road to gravel surfaces. Gear changes very smooth and comfortable.
