Pros

Good carbon fiber bikes at decent price points are hard to find. We checked out the SAVADECK Phantom 2.0 and certainly didn’t find it wanting. Here’s what we did find.

  • Partially pre-assembled
  • Easy to ride
  • Fizik Nisene saddle – this retails for about $80, so it’s definitely not a low end bike saddle. It offers a great amount of support.
  • SHIMANO Ultegra 6800 components – these components are some of the highest quality available and definitely aren’t cheap parts.

Cons

There aren’t that many cons on this bike, but here are a couple of complaints.

  • The tape on the bar is a bit sloppy, but it’s not that noticeable
  • The paint seems to be a bit more fragile than some other bikes
  • Ships from China, so it might take a bit over a week to get to you
