        Great bike - but noisey ride

              I use this as a fitness bike riding 17 - 40 miles per day. Nice ride but suffers from intermittent, loud frame noise that is distracting. Have 700+ miles and been to the local bike shop about 4 times without resolution.

                    What great bike, light fast and a rocket going up hills EXCEPT, the cranks have a known issue.

                    They started to click within week #1. Immediately I had to take the bike back in and they said that the crank set (FSA BB30) has had loads of failure issues. "Just look up clicking noise + BB30 online" he said. I did and sure enough it has been failing for lots of others. They repaired it, but the issue came back even worse 2 weeks later. I was not stressing the bike in anyway but after 30 minutes of road riding, a loud and really harsh clicking noise was coming out of the cranks every rotation. It was so loud that I could easily record it on my cell phone while riding.

                    So the bike is in the shop again, and I am trying to figure out if I return it or take a bet that it can be repaired permanently. Given the all the similar testimonies online, it will probably be the former, which is a shame since this is a really nice bike.

                          Just bought this today and rode about 14 miles. Relatively flat terrain (old railroad) but my most-feared "3 miles of hell" - a long, rising, open, windy stretch that just never seems to end - was easy and smooth. I am sold.

                          I had been riding my daughter's a TREK 750 for 15 years. I love that bike, but this one is sooooo much nicer. The gears are smooth and easy to change, the handles are comfortable and breaking was great.

                          I'm not used to such a hard seat (I do have padded bike pants), but that is the only "not so great" comment I can make.

                                I ride most weekends and often during the week. This bike is quick, responsive, and most important comfortable. I have shoulder issues and the set-up is the perfect blend of comfort even on rides of 2+ hours.

                                      I received the bike for a birthday present in Feb. I've been using it whenever I have a chance for 5 months; where I used to bike an hour a week, I now ride 5 hours minimum, and some sundays I ride for 8 hours - just because it's now a lot more fun

                                      The gearing is excellent - the low gear has enough range to make tough hills climbable for an old man, while a 3:1 at the high end of low is just perfect for making an old man rev up even on the flats.

                                      It could get 30 lbs off of my gut and butt by the end of the summer
