This is one phenomenal entry-level steel road bike. These were previously priced at $1,600 - but lowered to $1,000 - and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to stock them at this price. It's a steel frame and fork, made of high-end Columbus Zona tubing (Italian steel) with clearance for up to 32mm tires. The Tiagra components are usually found on bikes $200 more than this one. It's a really nicely spec-ed out bike that rides even better, making a great road bike or even a fast city commuter. The bike feels smooth and lively without being too noodle-y - exactly what you want in a steel bike. The paint and finish quality of these bikes is phenomenal. Come take a ride on one before they're gone!
