Who here rides a Litespeed Ultimate?


Matt Johnson

Anybody here ride an Ultimate with the carbon stays?

I'm checking out this bike. I'm 6'4", 200 lbs, have ridden and raced
on and off for 25 years. I've been testing a friend's 61 cm Ultimate
with Bontrager wheels. The bike doesn't feel 'flexy' but feels
'mushy' to me. And I hate the Litespeed carbon fork and would replace
it with an Ouzo Pro.

Wondering if the Vortex is the way to go for a truly stiff Ti bike.
But I'd like feedback about the Ultimate from anyone currently riding
one who rides relatively hard and has race experience. Would like to
hear how it handles and holds up. And would love to hear any
