Airborne Spectre experience?(5 posts)

Airborne Spectre experience?Lazy
Mar 16, 2001 7:12 AM
Hi there tri-guys (and gals),
Any of you folks have any experience with this frame (previously called the multi-sport)?
They are being sold for $899 (frame only). I was considering this frame or a Cervelo P2K for a TT bike. The P2K is running about $1200, but includes fork and seat post. What do you all think?

P.S. I don't need a complete bike as I already have wheels for it.

Go with the Cervelo P2k you want be sorry. I use a P2K for triathlons. The Cervelo is more aero then the Airborne and comes with an bladed carbon fork. With the Airborne you would end up paying more than the price differnce for a seatpost and fork.
I'm a genious!Lazy

In anticipation of that exact response, I got the P2K. It arrived last week! Boy is it pretty. Fast too. Thanks!
I suppose that would be a more effective statement if..........Lazy

Let us know how you like your P2K.

I'm spoiled cuz I got both an Airborne Spectre and a P2K.

At first I was gonna build up the bare frame, but decided that the total purchase price made it worthwhile to buy a complete bike rather than farm around for components (besides, I already went that route with the Spectre).

And remember, you can never have enough wheels.

Be the bike.
