Quintana Roo ilicito-Prototype Test Report

This past week, with thanks to the guys at American Bicycle Group, I was able to test ride the new QR Ilicito, this bike was previewed at Interbike in September and already had received great reviews. When looking up-close at the picture, you will notice the frame has no rear left seat stay. The chain stay has become larger for support while providing great aerodynamics. I also ride a QR CDO1, so I was anxious to see if I could tell any difference. Rode 25 miles on the bike and the ride felt the same as my CD-O1. If anything the rear of the QR-ilicito might be a little stiffer. Kyle Love was with me on the ride and he thought the bike rode great, really smooth. In my opinion the biggest benefit will be in the aerodynamics of the frame now that the stay is missing.
Looking forward to seeing the production model.
Thanks again to Tres Courdin and Brad DeVaney for asking me to perform the test ride.
