    Quintana Roo Split Carbon... Awesome!

    This is the first carbon bike Ive ever ridden and I love it! This thing is so stiff. As soon as you hit the pedals this thing MOVES! Its beautiful too. Pearl white, pearl silver and black, cant get much better than that...

    Mmmm... Carbon goodness...

    I actually had to put my MTB pedals on it tonight b/c I accidentally left my road pedals on my last bike when I sold it...

    It does look similar... I like my color scheme more though.

    Wait you really need pedals????? Crap now I figured out why people are staring at me!


    There is something inherently wrong though with the word Split in a bikes name.

    same bike as the Pedal Force ZX3 2008. Since the Pedal Force bike comes with no decals, people often ask me what bike it is. I tell them it is my "generic Taiwanese-made bike".

    I think that "Split" is about the worst possibly name a company could paste onto a carbon fiber frame.

    I read your title and I thought we were going to see some cool broken frame pictures. And then I looked but couldn't see the split.

    So it's not broken, right?
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    Buying the bike from Pedal Force is actually a little more expensive and you dont get the nice paint job either from Pedal Force.

    i got the frame for USD$450 during the group buy. I don't think I would consider that as being more expensive. Plus the components sold during the group buy was cheaper than most online retailers such as PBK.

    As for paint job, I actually preferred the stealth look of naked CF.

    I meant as a complete bike. Yea, if you do a group buy then of course it will cost less but thats not always the case...

    Anyways, everyone rides around on bare carbon so I like mine a tad different.
