This is the rear:

 

Not easy on the eye. But quite an evolution.

The Ridley Not Fast :lol:

 

I have never smaaked their bikes and this certainly not helping!

The industry introduced the 29er to the MTB market to boost sales knowing full well that the consumer (us) will buy anything that we are told will benefit performance.

 

Now they are doing the same with road bikes and are bringing out the next "got to have" trend. They are calling it the "aero" bike. Felt and Fuji started it with the AR and the SST. Then Scott and Specialized jumped in with the Foil and Venge.

 

I have no experience in aero dynamics, but I cannot see how changing a few thin tubes on a thin bicycle can have any significant effect on aerodynamics.

 

But, if I could afford it,i would probably buy one because they look cool.

Quite a few teams wearing them in the tour.

Interesting as I think the general perception of BBB is that of a budget brand, now we see the Pro's wearing their kit.

Quality is very good.

 

My Bell Sweep is just over a year old and is pulling apart.Looking at the BBB Falcon to replace it.
