Postby golfpro » Fri Nov 14, 2014 11:41 am

Anyone had any experience or opinions on these?

SS200

Looking for a nice light, fast flat bar I can out a rack and panniers on to commute 32km a day to work in Sydney

I'm trashing my lovely Trek Madone 4.5

Any other receommendations welcome as well.

X2 I reckon. Shame Cell doesn't have the SS300 anymore. That was a ripper flatbar with Tiagra components for about the same price. But I've heard a lot of good things about the X2 City bike. But of course ride both of them and see how you go...

Went in to Cell and tried both and went with the SS200

Both were nice, the X2 had a slightly better build probably and sharper components probably but the SS200 was lighter and felt easier to ride, for me anyway.

Not after any record time trials, just commute to work comfortably which it did nicely on Mondays first run

Accessories, ie panniers, rack, lights etc cost me twice the price to get them in and fitted in store compared to online but I don't mind, you pay for service and convenience

Anyway really happy with my purchase, now I'm just keen on getting some turned up handles on the end of the handlebars I have now for varying hand positions while riding
