    Question Iron Horse Transit 3.0

    Anyone have any experience with this bike?
    The components are:
    Specifications
    Frame: Semi-compact road frame with 1.12-inch integrated head tube
    Fork: Carbon with alloy steerer
    Handlebar: Flat alloy, 31.8 mm
    Stem: Alloy, 31.8 mm clamp
    Headset: Integrated alloy
    BB: Sealed cartridge
    Crank: FSA CK-400TTT
    Rings: 52/39/30T steel
    Pedals: Wellgo alloy with toe clip and strap
    Chain: KMC Z-72
    Saddle: Selle Italia X2
    Seatpost: Alloy micro adjust
    Front hub: Alloy QR, 32H
    Rear hub: Alloy QR, 32H
    Front derailleur: Shimano R-443-A, 31.8 mm clamp
    Rear derailleur: Shimano Tiagra
    Shifter: Shimano R-225 EZ-Fire
    Cassette: SRAM PG850, 12/26T 8 speed
    Brakes: Tektro road, R356
    Rim: WTB Freedom FR-01

    They all look good, however I can not find anything out about these bikes.
    I bought one for my son, just hope the frame is not complete junk.

    Iron Horse is a good brand. I think of them as being kinda heavy but that's probably because of the name more than anything else. I ride my brother-in-law's Iron Horse MTB when I visit. It's probably ten years old and still holding up fine. Newer models, like your son's, are probably even better.

    Appreciate the fast response!

    Thanks!
    We do not have the bike yet, however the claim is 23.5 lbs! I will get it weighed when I take it to the lbs for set up.
    This is not a mountain bike, which is what I see they are known for. I wanted to get him something to go on rides with me. We only ride the W&OD bike trail in VA. He didn't want drop downs or brifters and wide knobby tires kill him on the long upgrades, so this looked like a good solution.
    We will see.
