Road Bike Alchemy Eros Di2 Frameset 2018. After all, the material is one of the old dogs of boutique frame construction because its strength-to-weight ratio surpasses every other ferrous frame material (even exotics like scandium) but doesn’t come at the expense of a harsh ride. That’s more or less what the industry collectively refers to as “ride quality,” and it’s long defined what makes a desirable frame.

Road Bike Ridley X Trail Limited Edition Frameset. Maybe it’s the last frontier of a wild-west like experience — diving down the roads less traveled to visit sites and places that are seldom seen by others, or maybe we’re just feeling a little limited by traditional road geometry, and want the ability to keep our adventure going after the road ends. Either way, those of us who crave miles beyond the tarmac, and not inside of a car, are diving into that wild beyond (okay, maybe it’s just a country road), with an ear-to-ear grin, and an appreciation for the scenic route.

The result on the other side is a jersey that’s exceptionally lightweight, breathable, and wicking to keep you going in the saddle longer and with more comfort.
