Aventon Cordoba 2018
On Saturday I tried the new Aventon Cordoba. Cycling in the velodrome, helped by the fixed-gear that gave me also a sort of continuity and regularity in my training, made me feel like I had found my own Nirvana.
Talking about the technical aspects, the frame is really nice and the carbon fork assure more stiffness and lightness.
The bike is not too nervous but it still allows the rider to make rapid direction changes, which is a crucial aspect in a velodrome or on the winding streets of a Criterium.
The riding position, compared to a common track bike, is more comfortable. This feature allows the rider to enjoy a more comfortable ride without any loss in terms of performance.
I would definitely suggest this bike to start a fixed-gear adventure.
