We love the RT57, and clearly we're not alone. Riders up and down the country are loving them too, as are the journalists at C+ magazine who have shortlisted it for their "Bike Of The Year". Heaping praise on the Red model they tested - some quotes include:-
"the RT-57 is remarkable value for money at its reduced price. Far and away the best equipped bike in the Bike of the Year test"
"a bike that’s ready for a dogfight. The sharp front end gives quick steering responses at low speeds; at speed in a straight line the minimum of rider input is needed, though high-speed corners need a little more attention. When mixing it up in a bunch, the knife-edge handling means you can react instantly."
"As a full-on race bike it’s close to the Cannondale SuperSix in terms of performance".
We've added carbon bars to "soften" the front end up a little in line with their suggestions, and fitted the excellent FSA SL-K Light Compact BB30 Chainset with 50/34 rings to bring the bike more in line with what our customers were wanting.
