Ambrosio Cycles/Campy Xenon questionsdaneil
Jul 9, 2002 5:14 PM
Ok, I think I might have found my new bike. I gave up looking in the US for a beginner-priced bike without sora parts and found the Ambrosio Solaro Compact in the market section of Cycling Weekly (bless those brits with their weekly cycling mags). Anyway a 7000 series frame, carbon fork, and full Campy Xenon group for a descent price. I was just wondering if anybody has had any experience with either the grouppo or the bike/bike maker? Thanks alot. I've been sized by my lbs and I've bought bike off the internet before (my 2000 Mongoose Pro Ti mtn bike was a steal at $850 from so i'm not worried about that, although I would like any info you all might have on the mail order place, Pearson Cycle Specialists. Thanks alot guys.

here's the link to the bike, it's all the way at the bottom.

Thanks again

xenon is campy's entry level groupset, it was reviewed in cycling plus and did well, but is new so longevity couldn't be measured. I have an ambrosio carbon fork on my bike, iy's fine. Pearson's are reputable, you're probably getting alot of bike for your money, if it meets your needs go for it.
