Wicked Witchcraft

Never pay full price, unless what you seek brings many joyous returns. Moved to this rig, from buying a second Emonda SLR, because Trek Project One could not NOT plaster a 20"" decal on my Downtube. Was it a good choice. ... Umm, yup! Way way way fast. Lithe. Precise. Is it ""All That""? Why yes it is. Front end is supple, Tracks like it's on rails, Climbs faster than I can. Tubeless, yes it does, in fact I blew the cotton tyres the first coffee run, then swapped them for Turbos, and found I couldn't get the tyre back off when that Tube also flatted. So I thought I'd give the tubeless a shot, mostly because I was out of tubes. Pulled the flaccid tube,Filled the RapidAir snapped the tire on, and with a hand pump filled it. Still ride like magic. So yes... I'm a rule breaker, BUT, the Aethos helps me break all the rules. Amazed Perhaps a perfect bike.

Its just magic ! I puts a continuous smile on my face.

Worth every single dollar! I have been riding all kind of Specialized road bikes, but this one plays in its own league. I am usually skeptical with marketing slogan, but in this case Specialized did not overpromise, it is so much fun to ride. Its feel so natural to ride this bike.
