KESTREL--Talon--Interested In BuyingBJN
Sep 24, 2001 8:05 AM
I am thinking of buying the Kestrel Talon. I do both road and Tri, and from what I have read this seems like a good bike at a decent price.

I am looking for feedback, e-mail me if you would like.

Thanks!

Kestrel is a great bike--especially the Talon for the money...right now at Supergo you can pick one up with full Ultegra for around 1400--which is a screaming deal...

great tri bike too...just add aero bars.

Thanks for the tip on Supergo, unfortunately they are out of my size (57). The price was unbelieveable, and I would like to find such a deal again...any suggestions?

Our local Performance Bike shop carries them here in PA. They looked really cool & good deal, although I can't remember the price. They were at the Paoli, PA location. If you got to the website, you can get their number. The white one looked really, really nice !

I purchased a Talon back in August. I bought it online after doing a lot of research. A lot of people thought I was crazy getting a bike without riding it first but I knew it was the one. I was so right. It is the most beautiful bike I have ever seen (48cm black with full Ultegra) and it is FAST. My other bike is steel and the transition to full carbon was with surprising ease. The bike is very stiff but is not completely dead under me. I feel completely as one with the bike instead of fighting with it when pushing up hills or doing out of seat hammering. It is better than expected, honestly, and how many things can you say that about these days? E-mail me if you have any questions about it.
Thanks
