"Great bike, great price. You will love the S22 once you ride it."Rollin' Thunder

(3)

Ease of installation

As for install, let's call this installation of components, etc. My S22 is really easy for work with.

(4)

Ease of use

Great bike -- probably the best tri bike setup for my geometry. As for ease of use, the engine will always need upgrades...

(4)

Quality of Construction

I have ridden this bike about 3,000 miles a year since I bought it. I ride on country roads alot, so the frame is put under a ton of stress. I still have the factory components on this bike and have not had any problems. Shimano Dura Ace sure helps when looking for a quality bike build.

(4)

Fit

I had my fit at my tri shop -- SBR in Orem Utah. They are a great group and I have only had to make slight adjustments for comfort over the years.

(4)

Comfort

The right fir makes all of the difference here folks. You can spend $10,000 on a bike and without the right fit, it will be a horrible ride for you.

(3)

Adjustability

Pretty standard here.

(5)

Durability

Like I said, this bike is starting to get broken in now. From my training journal, I have about 11,250 miles on this bike. So far so good.

(4)

Value

Nothing is perfect -- but my next rti bike will be a Felt as well.

(3)

Appearance

Great orange paint job on my bike. I keep it pretty clean and boys, she cleans up really well.

(4)

Performance

Great bike for the money. I have not experience any issues with negative performance of the equipment.

Strengths

The quality of the fram construction and the components really set this bike apart. I am 6'1", run around 200#, and have about a 33" inseam. I think my body type is pretty average for a guy my size. It seems like the actualy geometry of the frame fits my body style really well.

Weakness

Because the bike is so stiff, the ride is not smooth as silk. Felt tried to combat this as much as possible by including a carbon fiber fork and seat stem, but you do feel most of the bumps.

However, stiff = speed. That I wouldn't trade for the world. Just know that when you buy a quality bike that likes to run like the S22, you will need to be prepared for your taint to get beat up a little.
