I presume someone was paid to write this?

It's not aerodynamic in a way that Canyon's Aeroad is, or Storck's Aerfast, as once you start to pass 25mph on the Ultimate you can really feel the wind resistance increasing. The true aero bikes like the two mentioned take much less effort to go above this speed, but the Ultimate makes a good compromise. - See more at: http://road.cc/content/review/190028-ca ... oudbq.dpuf

    So he's saying that you can feel the wind resistance ON THE BIKE increasing ?

    And not the huge wind resistance of the rider ? Hmmmmm.

    Quite a chubby looking rider too, perhaps he had put on weight before riding the Ultimate ?

    Of course there's no correlation between the revenue stream for advertising to the publishing company and the favourable reviews, of course not.

    And journalists are known for their intregrity and above financial inducements in their quest to inform the society they serve. Although renumeration by way of doughnuts doesn't leave a money trail it does leave bulging lycra....

    Journalists will promote whatever is requested by the big brands. In mountain biking this is starting to get more and more out of hand with pointless new developments. In road biking the bikes are all much more similar so it is not so bad
