To complete the comparison with Chili's V-rex, I own the other two bents - a Baron and a Lynx. I like both, though I started with the Lynx. The Baron is lighter and faster, but the Lynx is no slouch and is better suited to club rides and work commutes. If you want to race, especially on a track, you can't beat a Baron - it is a blast to speed around on. The Lynx, however, is also a fast road bike, if not a true racer, and its higher position and geometry is better suited for road use. For a small sacrifice in top speed (maybe 10%?) the Lynx platform provides more flexibility for commutes, touring, etc.
Hope this helps.
I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all.
