I bought my RQC29 3 weeks ago after talking to Jonny Towers on our local saturday morning bash.I visited Cycle Divisions exelent showroom and discussed sizes and setups with Gareth and Dan and came away with my new frame and full Sram Red groupset.After putting it together, the quality and finish of the frame is first class and after being a little nervous of switching from Shimano to Sram I was really impressed with the feel of the Sram with its ceramic bearings throughout and the really short throw of the gear levers, there are even top quality swisstop break blocks as standard.Sitting on my bike, it has a real racey feel with a very low front end. As soon as you set off, this feels fast,ridding on tubs with high pressure it does feel quite harsh at first,but as soon as you start going fast ,that harshness turns to reassurment when attacking corners. Acceleration out the saddle is also impressive,its even improved my climbing!!!!At this price there are going to be alot of Trigons on the road...A Big thanks to Jonny, Gareth and Dan.

Having rode high end Trek Madones for the last 4 years and other high end bikes before that, I didnt think the difference with the Trigon RCQ29 would be great. On recommendation I bought one and I can't believe the difference, far stiffer in the BB area both climbing and sprinting. At 78Kg I'm not the lightest but I couldn't detect any flex anywhere on this frame. So pleased I listened to the recommendations and got one, they look the biz and has the best finish I've ever seen on a frame.

i have had this bike since may so have had all summer to test and review. I cannot praise this thing enough it does everything i ask of it without any questions. added a pair of zipp 202 wheels for events/sportives and it goes up hills like a rocket , also got the weight down to 5.9kg with a few lighter parts ie alloy casette and of course the 1000g zipps. buy one now put some zipp 202,s on for hilly rides and you will not be beaten on those hilly courses. i have done 100milers this year and have to says its a excellent spinner as well.
thankyou thankyou thankyou , best summer i have ever had.

Thought I'd push the boat out and treat my self to a new bike and after getting the ever so important green light from the missus due to my upcoming 50th. I started to do some home work based on my £4K budget. I read an article some time back in Pro Cycling and liked the look of the Trigon and even though I hadn't heard of this bike the review was pretty impressive. I've also seen a few of the bikes on the local run so got to see them in the flesh which did the trick. Found this website after a quick search and luckily for me the importer is local so called them to ask some more questions. Gareth, the guy in charge there, recommended that I pop down to see him and I the rest is history, after great advice from Gareth I got fitted up and arranged my pick up date which was only a week but seemed like an eternity due to the excitement. I can't really compare this bike to much as my previous bike, now due to be my winter bike, was a Boardman which I though was ace and has served me well. The 29 has blown me away, I seem to be able to climb on much bigger gears with out knowing and I just love the bike and now really believe the hype that got me interested in the first place.
Only problem now is that the missus wants a new bike to replace her Boardman!!

Got my RQC29 a couple of weeks ago and wanted to come back onto the site to leave a review mostly because I am so pleased with my new machine. I went for the Sram Force groupset because of budget restrictions but it is the frame and wheel combo I am so impressed with. The whole package rides so well compared to my previous bikes it is stiff but comftable and really responsive it inspires confidence on descents and is a joy to ride, looks good too! I was really looked after the guy from cycledivision so thanks to Gareth too. PW

Great bike great service, thanks guys, not normally one to write reviews but I was really happy with how I was looked after, really patient with all my queries , but now I am out on the road on my 29 I couldn't be happier, light,fast and rides like a dream, last bike was a dura ace madone and this Red equipped RqC29 knocks spots off it. SL.

Just got my RQC29 Red complete bike last week and I am sooo impressed, never ridden anything that delivers power from legs to road so directly, its stiff and responsive and corners like a real race bike. My last two bikes from a Scott addict and before that a Pinarello Dogma, comparing the 3 my Trigon delivers way more overall and value wise it is off the chart. For what I have spent this time around on this bike I may buy one of their RCC11's with the change to train on LOL!!
PS.. The guy that sorted me out through Cycledivision was spot on!

Quite simply the best complete buy bike i have ever ridden! Super stiff frame that somehow gives the ride comfort of old - school steel frames. Press on the pedals and this machine goes where you want it to - forward!.....and fast!
Dream bike at real-life price!
