Nice bike when set up correctly, 25 September 2016
By roadrunner (Swindon)
Took a punt with this bike as there’re no reviews and nowhere to try. Was looking for a commuter / winter trainer, i.e. road geometry and can take full mudguards. Unfortunately, the Forme website is incorrect about the fork mudguard eyelets and Go Outdoors confirmed they couldn’t fix standard mudguards when the bike arrived for assembly. The Go Outdoors T&Cs state you can get a refund if you don’t like the bike, but I decided to keep it as it looked pretty good, especially at sale price. Highlight is the aluminium frame. Feels fast, bottom bracket flex is well contained and power transfer is noticed in acceleration and climbing out of the saddle. When descending at speed there is no sign of twitchiness from the front end, i.e. you don’t start feeling nervous when speed picks up and reach for the brakes to slow down. For longer distances the aluminium was surprisingly very comfortable. Not as comfortable as good steel of course, but I don’t think I’ll have any problems with a full day event. Holding the bike back are the Mavic wheels (re-badged CXP 22, I’ve read) where the weight is noticed when climbing. These will be first to go when funds allow. For commuting, they’re fine. Bike weight is approx 9.5kg (rough estimate with the bathroom scales), and a decent set of wheels alone will probably bring the weight under 9kg. The Lugano tyres are generally ok, but did notice a lot of slipping on a steep wet ascent. You probably wouldn’t want to take a curve too sharply with these tyres. The Sora brakes have the same stopping performance in the dry as my rim brake bike (and no difference to Avid BB7 that I’ve had before), but as expected didn’t lose stopping power in the wet. When I came to collect at my Go Outdoors store no one offered to make sure the bike was ok. Just a case of sign this form and you can take it away. Usually, a cycle shop would sit you on the bike and do some simple adjustments so you at least have a reasonable fit. I can fit myself so not a problem, but if you’re new to cycling maybe you need to ask. I was given the bike build tick list to show the bike was ok, but I flipped the bike upside down on the floor and ran through the gears noticing immediately some chain skip. I pointed this out to the store technician who nicely went though all the gears again. When I got home I did another check and noticed the rear derailleur couldn’t move to the small cog, the front derailleur was set too high, and had chain rub when the rear derailleur was past halfway down the cogs. Sigh. In the end I decided to re-do the entire gearing myself. This is my first bike with 11 speed 105 – rear shifting is just as good as the previous 10 speed, but front shifting is noticeably better. Go Outdoors offer a free bike check at 6 weeks, but I think I’ll pass that one up. So to summarise, a really nice bike for the money, even though disappointed you can’t fit full mudguards (I now have the new Crud Roadracer Mk3 clip-ons which are ok), and if you do buy from a Go Outdoors store then give the bike a good check before you leave, else bring along someone who can do this for you.
