Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I absolutely love this bike! I upgraded from a Specilized Allez. I really like the fact that Competitive Cyclist allow more customizable features. I vouched for the Ultegra group set package which I was able to call and change a couple of options. I was able to finally get out and ride since the weather broke a little in Southern Minnesota. I can truly say it’s a world of difference coming from my Allez. The ride quality is much more forgiving over our chip seal roads, and the geometry fits me like a glove. My Allez is 52cm and the R2 is 51 which puts me exactly where I need to be. Great bike and top notch customer service. Thank You to all the customer service representatives at Competitive Cyclist to include the wrenches that assembled my new ride.

I actually bought this saddle in search for a change. I have always used cut-out saddles due my sensitivity in the basement. I tried pretty much every players saddle from Fizik Arione, Alante, Specialized Toupe, Romin, Alias, and Selle Italia Flite, and Flite Max. All the previous were ok but did not provide the feeling I was looking for. The Specialized Romin is the only one that ever came close to the fulfilling my saddle need. The Romin is very firm and the contour is outstanding, it's just made from cheap materials that rub away. A saddle should be a long-term investment and should be able to go the miles. This new experience with the Regal definately introduce me to an better option in saddle choice. The saddle is firm and what is even better than that, I did not experience any pressure spots in the basement. I felt like I was sitting on a chair that provided me with different seating options. I road it immediately upon receival for a 20 mile night ride and never felt better riding. It was kinda tricky setting up because the placement of the bars adjusting the fore and aft, but I think I negotiated a good position. Remember on set up to lower the seat post a tad.

I would recommend this saddle to anyone that enjoy a solid saddle or anyone that have basement problems. Don't let looks fool ya!
