PG-40 Review

I've put about 1000 miles on my Peacock Groove, so I figured it was time to post an update.

The verdict is that this thing is the best fitting/feeling/riding road bike I have ever straddled. It makes my Croll feel like a ton of shit. It is responsive, at first I thought it was too twitchy but I adjusted and now it feels like a scalpel, plenty stiff for hammering, the wide tires and rims soak up road chatter, and the Sram Red group has been flawless.

I could go on and on about how awesome this rig is, but suffice it to say that I am very satisfied with the job Erik did and I am very proud to call this bike my own.

I'm pretty much over the skull thing, and don't want to give up my bike this winter to have it re painted.
