Customer Bike of the Day: Eric's Carrera Phibra 2...
This is not our first Phibra 2, having built one up for a customer in Ottawa last summer
However, this was our first Mondrian
paint scheme Phibra 2!
Hand-finished in Italy, this Carrera is a monocoque racer possessing huge doses of stiffness and relatively high comfort for an all-day ride quality that still has enough rigidity for the strongest sprinters.
Features include tapered 1.5" headset, full internal cable routing for mechanical or electric drive-trains, and ISP. We built her up with a Ritchey WCS carbon cockpit...
High-mod carbon layup, gorgeous Italian paint quality, and extreme tube shaping are all visible up close...
Huge front-end stiffness from the tapered, oversized, and super-swoopy (non-Onda) fork...
Oh, and yes the new 2014 SRAM Force-22 groupset is AWESOME!!
