        Love to ride road bikes and enjoy riding to maintain my health. Upright positioning, flat bar control, and lots of gears to go through. Plenty fast if you want to or just cruising around the trails. Has all of the electronics built into this bike to monitor specifics. Perfect bike for me.

        My Fastroad Comax 1 is Grrrreat

        Just bought the 2015 Giant FastRoad Comax 1 on August 15, 2015 and was flying down the road this week amid stares of amazement and concern. I was moving fast and hard. I put on at least 150 clicks and am really digging' the ride. The Comax 1 is fast, sharp looking and light. For the record, I am 6 feet, 210 pounds with a 32 inseam so the large frame fits me perfectly. I ride between 2 to 3 hours, 3 times a week and stay on the road. The 105 rear derailleur shifts smoothly with the front 50-34 cog allowing me to complete long climbs without doing myself in. I descend in ways that would make Tour guys envious. Well, maybe not that fast but I hit about 50 clicks an hour on descents. The bike is quiet but the DFuse seat post clicks as it absorbs the road bumps. This brings me to the topic of comfort. I prefer a more upright geometry so I am getting my handlebars raised with an adjustable stem and am going to shorten them because they are too wide for my liking. The saddle is going to change to a noseless or something with a bit more gel. I am open to suggestions. I am not crazy for the bar ends because I don't need them for any aggressive climbs. I can't source any Ritchey components down here but would like to get a Ritchey carbon adjustable stem and carbon bar ends. I had to replace my back tube on my first ride because a tiny nail found its way on the paved bike path. I changed my tube on the spot with the portable kit and I am buying Conti Gatorskins this week to solve that issue. There are always custom adjustments required for any bike and these will set me back several hundred dollars. At the end of the day, I have an efficient set of wheels that gets me moving on the road with speed, comfort and pleasure.

            This is my 1st road bike I have had it for 3 months now, I ride it at least 150 miles a week. I road 200 miles in 4 days 2 weeks ago. I meet up with a group every Sat from the local bike shop, so far what I have learned is it's about the motor not how light or how expensive your bike is. I get passed by people on clapped out pcs of sh8 and I can pass people on $6500 bikes. GET OUT AND RIDE!

              This Fastroad comax is about $500 more than the Fastroad SLR 1, but the SLR 1 actually rides better,and the SLR is lighter than the comax version. If the colour, the exterior appearance and the 105 is not your concern, then I see no reason to purchase the comax version.

                  This is a high performance hybrid that lets you keep up with road bikes. I notice that I can go much longer distance, faster and getting less tired than with my old hybrid. I like the quality components and overall value for the money. While I use clipless pedals, I opted for Giant's MTB core platform pedals which I like very much.

                    I waited about six months for this bike. It was worth the wait. It rides well. Shifts are quick and precise. Comfortable ride and great looks. My thanks to Cycleworld for great price and great service. And my thanks to Joan for her help with this purchase.
