Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike
Carbon fiber is all the rage these days for thoroughbred road machines, but how quickly one forgets the magic that is aluminum. Enter the Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike, complete with absolutely superb Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed components plus Mavic wheels and tires. All-in-all it's a no-nonsense aluminum steed that's good to go out of the box for racing, fondos, spirited group rides, or just fast riding whenever you feel so inclined.

A well-crafted aluminum frame is nearly as light, plenty stiff, built to last, and puts a much smaller dent on your bank account. The Cavalo Corsa road bike sports a custom-butted aluminum frame with sculpted tubes and a tapered 1 ⅛" to 1 ½" headtube that rides and performs like your very own pocket rocket. There's a carbon fork with the corresponding tapered aluminum steerer tube that inspires confidence courtesy of its rock solid and utterly predictable handling.

Gram for gram, dollar for dollar, you'd be hard-pressed to find a finer choice than Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed and we've spec'd them where it counts: shift/brake levers, crankset, front derailleur, and rear derailleur. You'll be blown away by how well this stuff works as so much functionality, precision, and reliability has trickled down from big brother Dura-Ace that Ultegra is a tour de force in its own right. The shifting is just perfect while the standard-sized 53/39T crankset coupled with an 11-28T Shimano 105 cassette provides a wide range of gears that still have minimal jumps from gear to gear. The crankset also features Shimano's new four-arm construction and the beauty of this design is that the bolt circle is the same for standard sized and compact chainrings. If you ever want to make the move to compact it's only a matter of swapping out the chainrings - no need to acquire a completely different crankset.

French manufacturer Mavic is synonymous with high-performance wheels and their Aksium S wheelset is a stellar all-around performer. Their 24mm-deep aluminum rims strike a balance between aerodynamics and handling while stainless steel bladed spokes, 20 front and rear, will slice through the wind with aplomb. They're strong enough to ride everyday yet light enough to inject some zip into your rides on command. Paired with these wheels are Mavic's Aksion tires which sport a supple casing for superb ride quality plus a tread compound with plenty of grip so you can carve your way through corners as if on rails.

    Great bike and components. Nice and light. Other reviews suggested seat and brakes questionable/uncomfortable (had no issues with either. I did purchase shimano 105 calipers because of these reviews but have yet to put them on.

    Comments about Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike:

    I love this bike! I'm 6' 1" and bought the largest frame 59 cm. The frame size is just right for me, the 120mm stem had me stretched a bit so I replaced it with a 70mm now the fit is perfect. As mentioned about the seat not very comfortable, I didn't list it as a con because saddle comfort is subjective and I didn't try it with cycling shorts. The brakes are fine for me, I can lock both wheels up if I wanted, I don't need more than that.
    All I've changed with the the bike is, put a 70mm stem on, changed the saddle and bout clipless pedals, I have no plans to change anything else.

      Comments about Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike:

      Waited until after my first race with this bike to post my review. This bike is fast. Like, really fast. The race geometry lends itself to riding in the drops. Slightly uncomfortable after mile 30+ but that might just be the riding position. The bottom line is, on the downhills you will be a rocket and on the uphill you will be passing other chumps with minimal effort. As you already know from looking at the specs, nowhere else will you get these components for the money. And the bike itself is sexy.

      What everyone else says about the seat might be true. I don't know, because mine arrived broken and I didn't notice until race day, meaning I got stuck buying an overpriced seat from the on-site bike mechanic. Do yourself a favor and buy a seat when you buy the bike. Save the hassle.

        Looked at this bike for 3 years and finally pulled the trigger and bought one. Could not be happier- great bike w/ excellent components, awesome on hills, very fast and light weight. I read reviews that said the brakes and seat were not that great but I didn't find that to be true- for the money this is a steal.

          Replace the seat and this is high quality road bike. The carbon fork does a nice job of eating some of the imperfections of rougher roads. The Ultegra groupset always seems like it has an extra gear available, sort of like a Billy Mays commercial "BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE" A similar spec'ed bike from a big time brand would run you well into the $2000-3000 range. High value bike if you are looking to get into cycling.

            Ride with family, Exercise on weekends, commute 12 miles to work. Previous bike was old school GT Fury with Campy record components except Cinelli Bar and Stem and Shimano 600 drive train. Amazed that this bike is just as quick but much more comfortable. I grew up a bike snob with a custom Johnny Berry, Reynolds 531 and all Campy Record. The Cavalo is a nice riding frame.

            Have taken this bike on two 70 mile rides and had no bike issues other than the seat...it is stiff and uncomfortable. Ultegra components for $850 is a steal! Great looking bike also.

            Comments about Cavalo Corsa Ultegra Road Bike:

            Now that I've put 50 miles on it, I can say that I agree with the other reviewers--the brakes are weak. Nashbar has this setup as a killer starting point, but I'm going to maximize my purchase by upgrading the bike. The seat is very basic, and with the stock post is very heavy. My BMX bikes have lighter seats. It's a stiff and heavy Kalloy, so once I upgrade that it'll be a marked improvement. The Ultegra drivetrain is remarkably stiff, the wheels are entry level Mavics, and setup was a breeze. Front deraileur and brakes needed adjustment out of the box, but that's expected. It's a joy to take out on the country roads and the border collies can't keep up with me. Bottom line: I paid $854 shipped for a bike with Ultegra drivetrain and couldn't be happier.
