What an amazing machine you’ve made me John! This bike is absolutely incredible – fast, comfortable, stable, and so much feel.

Man this thing can descend! The way the frame and wheels soak up bad road is unbelievable. I found myself going faster AND feeling way more confident on the descents.

I am delighted with my beautiful new bike! It’s more comfortable for my elbows and wrists—and yet it also climbs very well. The descents are fun, and feel lively yet secure. Thanks!

The RRS performs flawlessly… this is the best bike I’ve ever owned.

I absolutely love the bike, it is a dream to ride. On my commute it is ridiculous fast, and super comfortable, and it gets a ton of comments at stop lights. Thank you so much, this is just fantastic work.
