Aspire Aerobe review

Aspire Cycles lets you specify your own colour scheme and finishing components for its 6-frame range. We've sized up the Aerobe aero road bike.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

An interesting option to customise your bike’s colour scheme and components from a UK-based niche brand. The result is a nice looking aero bike which feels fast. But the finished product is quite expensive for the spec and there’s a bit of front end flex.

UK bike brand Aspire’s unusual proposition to its buyers is the option to choose your own design and colour scheme for its bikes. It claims to offer nearly 2 million options for design and colour via its on line bike builder.

It has three frame options for road and one for time trial bikes, with the Aerobe being its aero road bike frame. There are six different variants of the lay out of bands and stripes on the Aerobe frame and forks, ranging from all one colour up to numerous different bands and panels.
