“Friends don’t let friends ride race bikes made in China” – RC
Just got these words from the owner of this new ride.
Sorry about the goofy spacing, it was just a cut and paste and I can’t figure out how to
re-organize it…….but you’ll get the idea.
“I went to the Sunday morning “no drop” ride with the Vernon Wheelers
intended for “B” riders. I looked around and went OH OH, only 8 “A” riders showed up and me.
In the past attempts to ride with the “A” group I would last only a few kms. Two dropped off
in the early going and we were left with the hard core.
I lasted to 61KMs and then I could tell my legs were starting to tighten
so I dropped off and finished the 90KM. Speeds of course were fast from my perspective,
not theirs. At one point we were climbing a modest hill at 31kph. Maximum speed was 61.7.
The bike was great, clearly capable of staying with the A riders, I could accelerate at will
if my legs had any gas left. Hills were no problem, the gearing is perfect. We went up
some solid grade hills. The bike was comfy(seat is great!) although the pea gravel farm
roads are a pain, no fault of the bike.
The reality check came yesterday when I rode my old bike with my wife.
The new bike has better brakes, is more comfortable, shifts quicker and
fits much better! The old one felt well old!
The old bike was fitted twice with “experts”, one had diploma in bike fit!
But your fit is better.”
Then this was just sent over from another rider that loves his bike!

Another one of our new hi temp pre-preg custom carbon bikes. This one was used by German National team member Denise Schindler at the 2012 Paralympics .
Denise qualified 3rd in the pursuit but just missed the podium in the final. She found great consolation by winning the silver in the Road Race.
This wild gang of Cunningham bikers all did better than their expectations at the Seattle to Portland ride this year. Not a worry amongst them.

Thanks for dropping by our website. If you are looking for a super fast bicycle that WILL fit you perfectly AND is painted to suit your style, delve no further.
If you want to get a bit more (sometimes entertaining) education on the racing bike world, read some of the News journal posts. There is a lot of experience around here and we are happy to share tales of bike lore with you.
Our philosophy is to give cyclists the fastest, best fitting, best handling bike they’ve ever owned created for their own style. Like the old days when rare and special meant something less than thousands and thousands built. Of all the bikes we’ve built, no two have been identical.
For all riders that want the individual attention to detail in their bike that the world’s best riders get without the hyper pricing presented by some builders. From fit to finish this will be your bike, tailored to your riding strengths and style.
Cycling is right at the top of the world’s toughest sports. Whether its going fast or long or combining the two, the right bike makes more difference than can be described, until you’ve had one. From world class Gold Medalists to those that simply love their weekend rides, we have accommodated.
Not only will your CUNNINGHAM fit like an extension of you, it will be FAST and comfortable! Combining maximum performance and durability in all our price ranges, we use only recognized, top components of the industry. No bogus parts slipped in.
Step out of the mainstream – ride a fast bike that fits
