For those riders who prefer a combination of great performance and a more comfortable ride, then watch out for Lapierre’s 2011 model Sensium 400 CP.

Aside from specializing in its Carbon HM Monocoque frame, the Sensium 400 CP also uses an SRAM GXP bottom bracket, which provides better adjustment to prevent tension with the bike’s chain. To lessen times of vibration, an elastomeric connector at the top of the seat stays was used.

From the front, rear derailleurs to the brakes and shifters, SRAM Force was employed, resulting in its excellent transmission and shifting. Lapierre Sensium 400 CP comes in 5 sizes and 4 versions in 2011.

Felt’s Slant is back for 2011, but for those who have not heard of the bike, Felt made the Slant a cross between a cruiser and commuter bike.

The 2011 Felt Slant is pretty much all black with a Cantilever Steel Frame, but has white and orange graphics on the head tube and chain guard. The graphic reads “Slant Felt Bicycles Southern California”. Thick tires and upright handlebars add for a comfortable and smooth ride.

For daily commutes and cruises, the Felt 2011 Slant is solid. Plus if your looking for a simple bike, the Slant succeeds in that field. MSRP is $299.
