Awesome to hear that bikes are starting to ship. I'm looking forward to seeing some reviews and pics from customers. I am really impressed at how you/your small company was able to put out a product as aerodynamic as the big boys while maintaining great adjustability and storage options.

Thanks. :/ That's what I thought but I was hoping I'd be wrong.

Congrats on your tremendous progress and outstanding results to date. Have you provided the bike to anyone for open road testing and review? I can't find any reviews online.

We have a few athletes on the bike that have been riding for a few months. Two are private athlete that don't generally do write ups - so I don't what to out them to anything they have not asked for.

The other is Stephen Delmo from Delmo Sports, LLC. He is a triathlete and race director in New Jersey and has put up a few reviews and has at least two first place age group finishes on the bike this year.

The only other public review was done by Ian Murray who rode the bike during testing on the Velodrome and reported on that in this forum last December.

Everyone else that has put miles on the bike either works with us or for us so they have a big bias.

HuffNPuff - here are some thoughts from Stephen Del Monte - I am posting it here with his permission.

The Tactical has been the best purchase I've made in Triathlon in quite some time. I first got involved with TRI in 1999. I purchased a used Raliegh Technium. I rode that bike for two years. I then upgraded to the Quintana Roo Kilo which was THE tri bike way back. I rode that bike until 2007 and started with a stock wheel set and upgraded to Spynergy...then to Zip 404. Once I maxed out the capabilities of that machine I bought the Cervelo P3 Frame set on my 30th birthday. I couldn't afford anything else for the new bike and had to swap out all of my old components onto the P3, the shop wrenches wanted to puke. I put 10 amazing years on the P3 and was now thoroughly ready for a change, but I didn't want to drop 10-15k on a bike. This past January I met Dan at the Triathlon Business International Conference in Dallas, TX. Dan showed me his bike, everything that it comes with, in addition to it's superior wind tunnel testing data.

I know who I am, and who I am not. I'm a family man with a passion for triahlon and the Tactical has been fantastic from the moment it arrived. Everything was nearly dialed in per my measurements supplied on the site. The travel case is 10x better than my old Iron Case and the fact that if fits three wheels perfectly and without compromising the bike inside is fantastic. Look, I know a bike will only take us so far, you MUST put in the work and I am quite familiar with that as the bike is my best discipline. The Tactical flat out performs at the highest level while leaving an EXTRA 10k in my pocket. There is no better value/performance based machine on the market. This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for and athletes in my area are starting to ask A LOT of questions about this bike and rightfully so.

So what's the scoop on these? Close to shipping to customers?

All the bikes are in our facility, inspected and looking great.

Left crank arms have been removed and over night shipped to Pioneer (California) yesterday for left arm power meter installation. They will overnight back as soon as they get them attached.

Three bikes delivered to athletes that did not want power meters. 1 local, 2 bike to a customer in UK that flew in to pick them up.

The balance will go out next week when we get the power meters back. :-)

Tried to up-load some pictures but the site says the files are too big.

You can see some pictures on our Facebook site. @TRIPremierBike

I got the bike a few days ago, and after getting fitted I went on my first ride today. Just wanted to give some quick feedback. I went out for 50ish miles... The bike felt amazing, and fast. It rides very smoothly, handles well, responds well in both aero and on the base bars, it brakes well and is super comfortable. I felt like I could have kept riding. I am probably going to bring the grip tape back a little further on the base bars though. When going up hills I think it'll be nice to have some extra padding so the area of the palm that connects to the thumb is a little more cushioned. Other than that, I can't be happier with it.

Initial thoughts are all good and I can't wait to race it.

Sounds like these are making it in to the wild. My friend who has one on order said he expected his to ship out today. I think he said something about all they needed to do was but the power meters on the bikes. I selfishly hope he gets it soon. Wanting to check it out as right now I'm between this bike and a Canyon.

Which bike can you ACTUALLY get? One is vaporware and one is shipping.

My wife and her family are from Germany and we split time there. I can pick up a Canyon easily. Not really sure which you consider vaporware and which is shipping. As far as I can see neither are available in the states although I think the Tactical might be soon.

Are you referring to the Aero Road bike as the vaporware one? If that is the case give the guy a break, he is a small time outfit in the middle of shipping his first full bike and designing a 2nd. Save the vaporware title for when he starts missing deadlines of when he says he is going to ship it (to my knowledge all he has said is that it is being worked on and not provided and timeline for deliveries).

Thank you - yes we are working on both the XS Tactical and the road bike but they are still in development. No time lines yet to announce.

As an US reader the Cayon is vaporware. Lucky for you, you could chose between the two.

That makes more sense....sorry for misreading your post. I would agree that Canyon in the U.S. is quickly approaching vaporware status.

I am sure that it does but it just looks clean. This will be my next bike when I need a new bike.
