Great bike for the money Jul 18, 2007
By D. Aronson
I have had this bike for 6 months now and I have logged at least 3000 miles on the bike. It has performed very well except for one problem which Ironhorse rectified when i notified them. I doubt you can find a better deal for a bike like this with a 105 drivetrain. It isn't perfect but it is worth the money.
The problem I had was that the wheel hubs are made by joytech and not really servicable. It would be much better if they provided shimano hubs.
Since getting the bike I have swapped the cassette from an 11-23 to a 12-27 since I live in an area with a lot of hills. And I'm considering swapping the rear deraileur with a short cage deraileur since it is a double ring front.

Great price, great components with one exception Feb 26, 2009
By Nichael Bluth
I've had this bike for over a year and put over 1000 miles on it. The only problem has been the FSA Mega Exo bottom bracket. It's an absolute piece of crap since the bearings go at about 200 miles. When you hear a loud creaking sound coming from the crank, it's time for a new one. The FSA crank is great, but the BB is absolute crap. Search for reviews on the FSA Mega Exo bottom bracket and you'll see what I'm talking about. Your best bet is to replace the BB with a Shimano Dura-Ace BB. It'll be a tight fit, but I've heard it works. That's my next move.
Great Bike Mar 23, 2009
By A. Petrosyan
This bike is great for the money, it's lightweight, fast and smooth. The gears shift smoothly, the brakes are excellent. Overall great quality.
The only con was that when it arrived, the derailleur housing for both my front and rear derailleur messed up, so a week after owning it, the gears wouldn't change. The problem was that it took some time to figure that out :( but it was an easy and cheap fix. Works great now! I still gave it a 5/5 rating because after that fix it's been running great for several months now.
Awesome Sep 11, 2008
The bike is super light, under 20lbs, and the 105 components are very precise. I'm extremely happy with the purchase. I paid entry level price for a $1,500 bike. Thanks Amazon!
