Cycling Weekly Verdict

No doubt many will like the feel, as it endows an almost regal, handmade quality to it, but all the same, it's something we'd like addressed. A great step forward by a British bike builder that's at the leading edge of frame design. Condor Leggero with: Di2 £4,950, 7900 £3,985, frameset only £1,799

Despite carrying the same name as previous models, Condor's Leggero is pretty much a new machine from the ground up for 2010. The Leggero sits third in the range, with the celebratory Diamante and titanium Moda above it, and five further models below.

It's at the top of Condor's 'regular' road tree and the bike of choice for the Rapha-Condor-Sharp Pro Continental team. An extra £100 gets you custom geometry but none of the team, interestingly enough, needed it, which says a lot for the six standard sizes Condor offers. This particular frame is the specific Di2 version, with internal cable routing for Shimano's electronic groupset, but there's a regular version, too.
