- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I picked the 02 over the one because I'm more of a weight weenie than aero guy. That being said the 02 isn't the lightest frame out there but when you're climbing you'd never know. When you stand up it goes, the frame if very lively and that's what I loved about it. It's stable at high speeds, at 50 mph downhill it's about as secure as I've felt and that's with some fairly deep dish wheels. Factor is not the newest frame out there but they've moved way up to the top of the field for good reason. I was actually surprised how much I liked riding the 02 being a lightweight rim brake guy. This is up on my list of new frames to build over the winter now.
hi...i see a big big difference between the claimed weight of 740 grams and your weight of over 900 grams...cant believe the paint would weigh that much...can u explain?? cheers and thanks
Does this frame take any standard 27.2 mm round seatpost ? Or do we have to use the one that ships with the frame ?
the frame comes with a post but you can replace with any 27.2, it's a standard post.
Hello - is there a stem/bar included with the 2018 frameset? I don't see it in the checkout process, in 2017 it used to ask for stem length and bar width. Thanks.
I am thinking of buying the O2 in disc version, one concern i have is the short chainstays (40.5cm) and DA di2 disc combo. Is there any issues and concerns with disc and DA Di2 working properly and quietly and flowlesly with such short chainstay, is there a bigger cross chain issue here then you would like???? I think Shimano recommends minimum 41.5 cm lenght for the Di2 Disc setup.
Do you have an idea when the disc version will be available?
As far as I know, they're available now. Feel free to reach out if you want to talk about the O2 disc.
Best bike I've ridden.

First, there's the response. Every input results in forward motion. Climbing is a bit quicker, a bit less strenuous than other bikes. On a long climb these assets add up. I'm comparing my 02 to my Scott Addict (2009) and my Look 695 (2012). Descending is scary because I'm not scared (until I sneak a glance at my Garmin). Wow, 3-5 mph faster through the corners. Is the bike that much better, or does its agility spur me to acts of insanity? Who knows, but it works. Ride is fine for a racing bike. I feel every road texture, but the road doesn't beat me up. I've ridden up to 4.5 hours in the three weeks I've owned the Factor, and I'm fine (relatively) when I finish. The matte black frame is beautiful in a fighter-jet way: focused, purposeful; it says "let's go fast." Last, the company president personally responded to my questions about equipment and set-up. Who does that?!
Love my new Factor O2......
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have now had the chance to ride my Factor O2 a couple of times out on the road and absolutely love it. Have received numerous compliments on my "beautiful bike" and now can say that it rides beautifully as well. The bike is tight, responsive, fast, and comfortable. Spent some time with a bike fitter getting it really dialed in and the frame feels great. Bill Sherman @ Competitive also worked with me to put the perfect components together. I went with ENVE wheels and the SRAM red wireless package. The combo has been awesome. It all feels and rides great. The folks at Factor have also been super helpful. Rob and Baden, the founders as well as Walter on the production side has been awesome. Thanks again, Alan
With the Black Inc. seat post, does it come with hardware for both carbon and metal seats? I typically use oversized rails.
Yes, you can use oversized rails with this. Feel free to call me direct if you have any other questions. 801.204.4545
Is the O2 frame available in the grey and turquoise color scheme?
Christopher, we will be getting the Turquoise color in. It is not "live" on the site yet, but happy to get the wheels rolling if you are interested;) Give me a call if you have any other questions.
You probably haven't heard of these boys yet, but you will shortly. They will certainly be a highlight at the tour this year. Out of the Factor lineup this is the workhorse in my opinion. The O2 is the most versatile and delivers comfort and beauty. The clean lines really differentiate Factor from the crowd and this comes at a great time when riders are looking for something new. The ride is what you would expect from a high-end carbon bike manufacture - smooth.
It does have asymmetrical chainstays, which will balance out chain pull and help with power transmission. At least that's what all the engineers stay, and of course Pinarello says that as well. Nevertheless, the 3 different types of carbon they use to build this frame where certainly put in all the right places because it climbed great and was definitely stable on the curvy descents here in Salt Lake. One thing I would like to see changed is the integrated stem and bar. I have never been a fan of this since most bar/stem options never work due to angle and length, but they are gorgeous. One plus, is Factor Garmin Mounts are included with the framesets. If you use a Wahoo or another brand the best bet is to do a top cap mount. Here the measurement for the Bar/Stem setup per frame size:
Please give me a call if you have any questions on this - happy to help out and build something up custom for you.
Measurements: 5'-10" - Saddle Height 71.5 - 54cm fit perfect.
