Fezzari Solitude XC Hardtail

5/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $1999.00

Product Description

The newest and best in the Fezzari Carbon hardtail series. Just when we thought we couldn't out do ourselves, our engineers did it again. We have completely redesigned the the Solitude HTC30 frame from the ground up. We have changed everything from the bottom bracket, headtube, seat and chain stays to give you more power transfer, less lateral flex and is a bike that is down right fun to ride. The new solitude features a 3K monocoque carbon fiber frame with a BB30 bottom bracket shell which increases lateral stiffness while saving weight. The 1.5" tapered headtube gives more stiffness in the front end so you can descend with confidence. We've incorporated our Continual Dispersal Box Technology to utilize all parts of the frame in propelling you up the trail.

Strengths:    Great on the climbs. It so light and responsive!
I also really love this bike for the descents.

Weaknesses:    Nothing about the bike. The only thing I have to complain about is that my bike came with XTR brakes which I thought would be great, but they sucked! They never worked right.

Bottom Line:   
I have been racing cross country mtn bike races since 2004 and I swear to you that my times dramatically improved when I started racing on the lightweight Solitude. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to do cross country mtn biking and/or racing!

Strengths:    I've raced my Fezzari Solitude 5 times, still no problems. Bike climbs great, going from a seated climb to a standing climb this things just simply rips up anything.

Weaknesses:    On technical descents, I get an uncomfortable noise from the rear drive side, not too comfortable with the noise being a carbon frame; I keep thinking it is going to come apart. Good news is, I've not let up and it is strong and stable.

Bottom Line:   
This is my second review of the Solitude, since my first review I've raced the bike 5 times. The bike should be winning races, my lack of training time keeps it off the podium. This bike is a climbing machine, 100% of everything put into the pedal pushes this bike up hills. It handles well on descents for a hard tail, nowhere near what full suspension bike offer but is well controlled. Races are won going up, this frame climbs. For more technical races I'll stick to my Superlight, for most races in SOCAL, I'll be on my Solitude; soon as I recover from my broken clavical...

Strengths:    So far so good, very light frame. I built this bike ground up, rode twice so far, nothing too technical but will race within the month.

Weaknesses:    None, hopefully it stays that way.

Bottom Line:   
Will write more later. So far the bike climbs great, lots of torque transmission to the rear, holds the ground very well, a real solid feel for a carbon frame.

Last year I rode Solitude on June 2nd. Rode Raptor Road up to KRUZR. Hit snow right above the base of Summit Chair. Top 100m of KRUZR were covered in snow. I think I was the first person to hit the trail as there were no other footprints or bike tire marks on or around the snow. Rest of the way do ... Read More »

Weekday morning solitude

Nothing like 3 hours of complete solitude on a weekday morning when most people are going through the daily grind. I was fortunate to have the day off and got out before the searing Georgia sun made it too hot to ride. Riding alone is very different from riding with my usual crew. I rode a little sl ...
