Anyone with experience with Factor bikes like the O2?

British company, not sure how big they are in the US.

Haven't seen much reviews or opinions on this brand, it's usually Pinarello, Colnago, Specialized, Trek, etc etc or Custom bikes whenever someone suggests bikes over US2000...

2 people at work riding a factor - no complaints.
Generally speaking, if a world tour team (AG2R) trusts a bike brand you can be pretty sure they know what they're doing. However, appreciate that doesn't help all too much in your search for actual reviews

Hi guysi have the Factot O2 and would highly recommend it. I've ridden many high end bikes and this one is the lightest and the stiffest I've ridden. It descends like it's on rails, corners smoothly, and is light on climbs. I mostly race criteriums and this bike handles extremely well. It even makes climbing more enjoyable for a non climber like myself!

My 2 cents on world tour bikes like these:

If the geometry suits then the look/appeal is probably the most important thing! Personally I think the Factor bikes look great and the Dogmas make be vom in my mouth... At the moment out of all the world tour bikes the Factor probably appeals the most, then the BMC.

Again, can't say enough good things about this bike. Many know I have had a few nice bikes and well this particular aero frame really took me by surprise in both speed as well as comfort. As earlier mentioned I have no concrete data, but ride the same loop day in & day out on different bikes... this is By far the fastest in my current fleet. In terms of aero segment it Beats a cervelo and canyon and F8 in terms of comfort on an aero bike. Again no concrete data and all really just by feel. I have owned and ridden all the other 3 bikes too.

Why did you get rid of it then?

Do not forget the money that pays Factor bikes to the AG2R, to bring your bikes

But equally if they don't cut the mustard, teams and individuals will find ways not to ride them....
