Looking for Recent Opinions on Douglas Bikeskatooom
Aug 30, 2003 4:43 PM
Hi All,
Anybody with any comments or experiences with Colorado Cyclist Douglas bikes? I've searched the forums and haven't seen any recent posts or updates. There are no reviews at all. Is anybody riding these bikes?

I am seriously considering the Douglas Vector (Al with Carbon Stays) or Douglas Precision Plus (Ti with Carbon Seat stay) bike. Seem to be good value.

Would appreciate any advice or opinions.
Thanks.
I have the Precision Ti (no carbon stays)...NatC

and I like it a lot. It's my first road bike, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I sure like how it looks and rides. The construction looks excellent to me. Maybe I can answer any specific questions if you pose them, but otherwise I'm not sure what to say about it other than I'm glad I bought it. No regrets.

Do a forum search for "TST" and Titanium Sports". This is the builder of the Douglas Ti frames. Very nice frames in my opinion. I've got a TST built Mongoose frame that I like.

Good luck.

I, too, have a TST ti frame. I'm fairly sure TST still builds frames for Colorado Cyclist. I own a Waterford and a Dura Ace triple-built TST. My TST is nicely welded and I love how it rides...even compared to the Waterford. I'm not necessarily suggesting you purchase directly from TST, which you can do, but I believe lower priced ti frames provide at least 90% of the performance of their much more expensive competition. If you buy a TST, you have to determine if your ego can handle the fact that you have no decals. My TST can be seen at:
