||12/31/2009: Built up a Pedal Force RS2 with Sram Red, Sram GXP Ceramic, Easton EC90 SL fork, Easton EC90 SLX Ergo bars, FSA CE headset, Fizik Arione CX Braided Carbon Rail Saddle on Easton EA90 SLX wheels weight came out to 14.11 lb including pedals and 2 cages.
The frames I got is the Black 3K carbon weave and it is beautiful the joints are flawless and smooth. My riding friends couldnít be leave how good it looked and they paid several thousand dollars more for their bikes that were still 2 lbs heaver.
The bike rides as good as it looks the BB is very stiff frame shows no sign of flex on climbs and sprints and tracks down hill on fast descents like itís on rails @ 50 m.p.h.
The frame adsorbs the road buzz like Iím on a newly repaved road giving a smooth ride on the rough roads that use to rattle me on my aluminum frame.
The customer support was first class as I did communicate with them the entire time from order date to time of completion of my build and they always responded to all my concerns. I did return the first frame because of a small flaw that was unacceptable to me and that also was a trouble free experience which was handled by them right away and supplied me with a new frame and return label for the old one, so time frame was only a couple of days extra.
Over all very happy with my experience with Peal Force and would have no problem recommending them if you are looking to build a frame thatís would compare to some hi end frame out their itís a great choice, I would have spent much more money to get a nice sub 15 lb bike.
