One for the Propel owners

Postby bianchi928 » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:47 pm

Hi,

I am considering a Propel for TT's (I want one bike to do it all really).

Some of the courses are "lumpy" and we also hold the "Hilly" series as well.

I know it's not a TCR but how does your Propel climb?

Cheers

Aside from the horizontal vs sloping top tube and correspondingly taller measured seat tube, the Propel & TCR are the same geometry, which means the Propel can climb considerably better than a dedicated TT machine.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Ride regularly with a few propel guys, they have no dramas spending a few hours in the hills.

I have a propel, and it climbs perfectly.. Granted I'm rubbish at climbing, but I had reservations (for whatever reason) that I would feel hampered on climbs.

Nope, goes up beautifully.
