This is my first cycling forum that I have ever used, so if there is lingo I am not using sorry. I started road cycling while I was in S. Korea. I had a MTB for a while but when I road my first road bicycle, Tommaso, it was ten times the result for half the effort and I was hooked. I just sold my KHS 900 flite org/blk and just got 08' Kestrel Talon 52cm. I have yet to ride the Kestrel in the 3 days I owned it. I was looking for a forum that could possibly answer some concerns I have about using the Kestrel full carbon frame. Glad to have found this forum and any guidance with the Kestrel Talon will be appreciated, wether good or bad.
