Here's what others have to say...

5 5

This was my first road bike. I'm 5'6" and got the 51 cm version after going after measurements on competitivecyclist (which backcountry owns). Not having had a road bike before, I'm not sure if the fit is "perfect," but certainly after 30 mile rides I've been comfortable.

The 105 component set is great for the on-sale price of the bike -- hard to beat. Saddle is rather comfortable (though I'm rather light, so I'm not sure how heavier riders will find it).

Bike shipped from competitivecyclist and was mostly assembled when it arrived: all I needed to put together was to mount the handlebars to the stem, install pedals, put the wheels on (they're quick-release... no issues), and install the seat. A minor adjustment to center the brakes to the rims and I was good to go. Box was sturdy and the bike arrived completely intact.

The BC site doesn't mention that the chainring is a compact -- it's 34 and 50 teeth. If you need a third chainring, this might not be right for you.

I haven't ridden enough road bikes to be able to comment on stiffness or other subjective measures of a frame, but I've really enjoyed the SR01 and think it's a great bike with a great featureset for the price.


Fit, quality excellent

I was originally expecting to write a review just like magp416423's ("Very slick"), but he beat me to the punch and stole most of what I was going to say.

I'm 5'6", 125 lbs and the small fit great. The silicone grippers at the leg openings didn't feel intrusive and held the legs in place rather well.

The reason I give this four stars is the presence of the large "PANTHER" across the lower back of the bib -- it's typically covered up but it still is a little bold (and odd, in my opinion). As a bib and not a fashion statement, there seems to be little to complain about.

Ignore the two books below the bib... just picked them up and was laughing my way through them!

I'm new to road biking and was looking to get started with a bib set. Stumbled across this one here and on SAC and gave it a try.

Chamois feels less dense than others but still offers decent support. I'm 5'6, 125 lbs and typically wear small (or XS in certain jersey sizes). The jersey here in S is really, really tight -- and the sleeves barely are long enough to go halfway down my biceps.

For $60 it's an excellent deal, but at least on size small be aware that you may need to order a size up. (Of course I didn't try medium so it's hard to say if it would have been too big.)
