So, in the next month or so I want to put together another crit bike, this time around I want to use a brand that is not seen very often here(except for the specialized)so I narrow it down to this few frames, the problem is that I never ridden them and Im wanna take the chance anyway, it would be really really helpful to hear form the guys that have had experience with this particular frames, so, some feedback would be nice to have, thanks in advance.


It will be equip with sram red, if that matters at all.

Falco Saker
FALCO BIKE

Specialized allez e5
Faith

Soul Faith
Faith

And lastly Velocite Selene, thanks in advance guys.

I like the Allez out of those options. Could do much worse for $800 and change.

true. the Rose looks really good, but price plus shipping is kind of ridiculous.

A Felt AR15 (in alumium) would be nice, but finding a frameset in US would be almost impossible, I think. No experience with it, btw.

Spec Allez is a great call too.

Our team has Scott Speedster's for training and crits where they expect pile ups! They love them to bits, they're a really fun bike to ride, would definitely recommend them.

Another vote for the Allez E5. Priced right and benchmark performance. Really good race bike.

This is a good topic. I agree with all of the suggestions, there is really a lot to choose from. I love the look of those long size Gaulzettis.

Storck looks good is not a light frame tho... Im in USA. I would get the Rose, but the shipping is a bit, high, might be worth it tho.

Anything on the other frames listed??? any riding experience?
