The bike looks like eye candy, but i read that they're quite harsh riding!?

It was Factor One, but i don't know if it was the first or latest.

I agree, for me Factor 02 in blue is the best looking frame I have seen. Comparing Specialized, Trek, Cannondale, Orbea, Scott, Look, Merida, Cérvelo, Giant, De rosa, Bianchi, Pinarello, Colnago. the paint of Factor is much nicer.
This year I saw in Vuelta Andalucía in orange , Team Roompot ride them and fantastic paint job too.

Post the review and find out! I'd be pretty sure it was ref the Gen 1 though. To be fair there can't be many proper ride reviews of the Gen2 out there anywhere.

You may be right. I also think it was the first version.

Absolutely love my factor one disc. It’s not a light bike weighing 7.8-7.9 fully built with r9170, Garmin vectors and enve5.6 wheels 28mm tyres. I can feel the weight penalty on the climbs but descending and flat roads are awesome. The only problem I have is dirty water bottles in winter from the split downtube, easily fixed with some tape where the nipple is.
