Ever had a bike that just felt right from the first pedal stroke? No22 content

Hi all,

It was a long wait, but worth it. When I decided to go disc, I looked at a few companies. I choose No22 for a variety of reasons: A glowing review from Jeff N. ( our resident Ti maven ), their provenance with Serotta, the fact they won best in show at NAHBS this year, the fact they were quite a bit cheaper than a comparable Moots and lastly cuz they are just super nice guys who put up with me asking 50 questions over a 15 week period. Their customer service was truly the best.

This is the result. Fit and finish are amazing. Tube manipulation is super cool. Subtle graphics are awesome. And lastly, this thing just feels great. Seriously, from the first pedal stroke it felt like I had been riding this bike for years.

It.Just.Fit.

Sorry for the crappy pictures, they certainly don’t do this thing justice.

Sounds like a great combination of quality product and excellent customer service - a rarity these days. I will keep this bike brand at the top of the list. Congrats and enjoy.

Very nice. I'm not in the market for another bike, but when that time comes, No.22 is definitely on the short list.

Which model is this? I see Aurora on the top tube but the No. 22 website shows the Aurora with a carbon seattube ISP.

It’s a hybrid. Aurora everything else but the carbon ISP. They were happy to accommodate and it was $500.00 less. Win-win!

So happy to hear that! The RSL is truly a great bike. I sold you mine to help pay for this bike. Moots just happens to be out of the price range I wanted to spend on a custom Ti disc bike. Feels like they are pricing themselves out of the market.
