TRIGON RQC29 Carbon Road Bike With SRAM Force
First called at Trigon to look at merely a frame and transfer from my old frame, which had been damaged in a crash. Ended up purchasing this bike (I think the one Cycle Weekly tested). Can only agree with the review above; what a fantastic piece of kit..... and it does put a smile on my face every time I ride it. Marked improvement on my previous bike - which was itself a reasonable piece of kit. Add this to the price of the Trigon and you cannot go wrong!

What a Bike!!
I race on a regular basis so needed a bike that i can train on as well as race on. When i decided that i needed a new bike i wanted a bike that would allow me to transfer as much power into the road as i can, whilst providing razor sharp handling and a smooth ride. The Trigon RQC29 is stiff, lightweight and responsive whilst at the same time providing a remarkably comfortable ride.
I have owned or ridden a number of the more 'established' brands including, a Pinarello Prince, Dogma 1 & 2, Giant TCR Advanced SL & Scott Addict R1 so feel that i can compare this bike against the perceived market leaders and if you analyse it purely on performance alone then this bike is right up there and in some cases better than the very best.
The Trigon may not have the heritage of the more 'well known' manufacturers but the company does have the engineering pedigree as they manufacturer frames and components for a number of market leading brands and this can be felt as soon as you start turning the pedals. The power transfer and handling is the best i have ever experienced.
For a bike to provide this level of performance at this price made my decision to buy one a very simple one. This is a superbly engineered bike that will put a smile on your face every time you ride it.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Gareth and Dan who's input and guidance was very much appreciated. These boys certainly know there stuff.
