"My first long ride was awesome. A training mate and I did an 86-miler. The
bike handled extremely well in the wind. The winds were 18-25 mph--it is
quite windy on Guam this time of year. The SPOX handled the cross wind
better than the Rev-X's. The bike handles very well. I found it interesting
and useful that as my cadence became too fast I could sense a bounce in the
seat and boom. This "feedback" was useful in that I would know it was time
to shift into a more efficient gearing which eliminated the bounce. I am
very happy with the bike and its components. Just as important, I am most
pleased with your expertise and service. Thank you. My training mates are
very impressed with the bike and a bit jealous. They just purchased Kestrels
and are dismayed that the TitanFlex is sooo light [17.3 lb] compared
to their carbon bikes."
- John LaBanc, CDR, USN, Guam
"My TitanFlex is a technological leap above the Kestrel
KM40 and 500 SCi I was riding. On just my third ride, I
was four minutes faster over a 20 mile course I've been
riding for years."
- Bill Leach, 1996 Age Group World Champion
"TitanFlex is more than 2 pounds lighter than the ZIPP I
had been riding. There's no limit to your forward
positioning... it's Humvee stable. This is the ultimate
time trial machine!"
- Doug Marocco, 1991, 92, 93 & 96 US MilitaryTriathlon
"Talk about an all-around bike, my TitanFlex has been a
real work horse in my daily commuting, hill work, sprint
training, and weekend century rides...light, comfortable,
- Donald White, US NAVY Triathlon Team 6-time Hawaii
"I've decided to purchase the TitanFlex. May I place my
order on line through this e-mail? May I give you a credit
card number over the phone and mail you the donation
reciept? If your answers are yes, here are the specifics
for the bike I want"
- Dave Young, USMC, Ret., Plano, Texas
"Yeah, it works... I found the TitanFlex to be the most
comfortable bike I've ridden... it is really the only road
bike you'll need, as it is equally at home on long rides
or pounding pavement in a race. Add in the comfort factor
and suddenly the price doesn't sound nearly as harsh as
riding a rigid frame for the rest of your life."
- Joe Lindsey, Editor, Bicyclist
"I had a great race with your bike. In very windy
conditions, I turned in a 40K split of 1:04 including the
transition. This is about a 2 minute improvement over my
TetraTri--not including the wind! Also had a flawless bike
to run transition, my legs felt fresher off the bike--and
much less back pain. I'm convinced you've built a great
bike. Got any decals for the back window of my SUV?"
- Pete Benchoff, Aiea, Hawaii
"On my first ride I took it out on a typical 33 mile
out-and-back course I do, and averaged over 1 mph faster
than my previous fastest time! I wasn't entirely sure I
was going into the wind, until I turned around. Seriously,
thank you for such an awesome bike!"
- Steve Rochford, Educator, Newport Beach, CA
"WOW!!! I love it. Between the lighter weight, and the
pure responsiveness of the bike, it has caught me off
guard a couple of times. It handled so well on the
descends. I was able to take corners so much faster than
usual, and climbing...another big WOW. It has the perfect
balance b/t stiffness and forgiveness."
- Sherry Coons, Ex-Pro Triathlete, fastest female bike
split at 2002 Cal Half Ironman
