Mid Life Crisis - Curve Belgie vs Litespeed T2 vs ??

Postby Stewartwent » Sun Dec 24, 2017 11:51 pm

Ok,

Not sure I really need another bike but would need a 'do it all' when I return to Oz in March. The Defy will stay in Thailand and I definitely want Ti with slightly more racy geo. Of course both Ti bikes are easy enough to buy in Melbourne. Would be very interested in opinions on either or indeed would welcome other suggestions. Looking to spend say 5k or a bit over on a total build with a 105 group set. I don't race road, sometimes race MTB, so some focus on comfort without being a wet noodle (12k - 15k a year).

Owner opinions on either would be great.

cheers

I have a curve CRX, have been really pleased with it although can't compare to a Litespeed. FWIW, I put 105 on mine and wish I had spent the extra at the time and put ultegra on as have now upgraded bits and pieces which has ultimately worked out more expensive. It is more comfortable than my $$ carbon bike.

I'd go the Curve over the Litespeed. Looks much better in my opinion.

My experience with Curve customer service has been pretty good. Grovel v2 ti rider, here.

Different frame/set, but I will add that for the next 24hrs you can get 20% off the Planet X (UK) gravel? titanium frame or frameset, plus shipping.
