I decided on the R872 after reading the reviews and it was quite clearly the best carbon frame under £1000. With my bike on order I entered a triathlon relay race with me to complete the cycle leg. I trained on my mountain bike as my R872 wasn't due a couple of days before the race. I borrowed a racer a week before the event to scout out the cycle route. I completed the 20k lap in 46 minutes I decided I would be happy with a 45 minute time on the day. The day arrived and I was stood in transition nervously waiting for my team mate to run around the corner with the timing tag. That was it, I was off the bike felt quick, light and nimble. Gear changes were smooth, and it climbed quickly. I completed the cycle leg in 42 minutes. I was really pleased with bike 3 minutes quicker than a week previously. During the week it's a comfortable bike to commute 12 miles on. I couldn't be happier with the bike, a racer at the weekend and a commuter during the week, a lightweight all rounder. Thank you Ribble
