2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bikes Part Two

Valdora PHX-2 $2,900

The Valdora PHX-2 is an aerodynamic frame made specifically for athletes who ride in a fairly upright triathlon position. The unique seat post has an extremely wide range of adjustability, allowing athletes to orient themselves in their optimal position. The PHX-2 is available with a variety of build options and comes in three sizes, a further testament to the wide range of fitting options that each individual size provides. Standard brake calipers (front and rear) will be appreciated by athletes who want a reliable and easily serviceable bike. Pedaling out of tight turns, the PHX-2 feels snappy, yet the frame still does a good job of smoothing out even the roughest of roads. Valdoracycles.com
