Airborne Corsair 2003 Hardtail

4/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $599.00

Product Description

The Airborne Corsair offers the same comfortably stiff and fast ride as the Lucky Strike, with a few simplified features. Same certified aerospace grade 3AL/2.5V titanium tubing, but round versus multi-shaped tubing. Size-specific titanium and GAMS (Graceful Arc Maximum Stiffness) seat and chain stays that increase rear triangle stiffness and heel clearance. The Corsair has drawn acclaim from abroad for a great ride and exceptional value. Frame is not disk brake compatible. *NOTICE: The Corsair is ONLY available in the U.S.

Strengths:    Light weight, excellent price, and super bump absorption.

Weaknesses:    Rear seat stays flex when v-brakes are activated. This problem is easy solved with a aluminum brake booster. No rear disc mount. The frame loses one chilli for no disc mount - that's just silly not to provide it since it probably only adds $15 to the production cost of the frame. Head tube angle is really set up for a 80 mm fork. The frame can handle a 100-105mm but that is about as far as you can go with this frame.

Bottom Line:   
This is an excellent frame and is a much better value than any aluminum hard tail. It you want a super stiff ti frame, this is not the bike for you. If you are looking for a frame that is forgiving and a little flexy and doesn't cost serious cash you should look at this frame.
