A well-mannered race machine, the 2011 Litespeed M1/SRAM Rival Complete Bike is speedy but not twitchy and steady but not slow. Without the weight or dowdy components, the bike rides very smoothly as a traditional road bike.
Everything is kept in place by the SL-250 micro-adjusting aluminum post with an easy-to-operate single bolt. Mavic provides the bike with excellent Aksium wheels that are lightweight enough for road race but are still tough enough to endure a year of demanding rides.
For enhanced hammering comfort, the bars have a 80mm reach, 125mm drop, and a minor 4-degree outward sweep of the drops. While the 2011 Litespeed M1/SRAM Rival Complete Bike is inexpensive, its quality is topnotch and it is available in five sizes, Small, Medium, Medium/Large, Large, and X-Large.
