Review
The Alton Corsa R14 is a mid-tier road bike which can be used for racing, commuting, fitness riding or just for coasting along the town or city streets for some fun. This bike comes with a DP 780 racing frame – the first of its kind being used in a bicycle. The frame is fairly light and keeps the weight of the bike in check. This makes the bicycle quite light and enables it to clock some fairly high speeds.
Gearing is alright although it lacks absolute precision. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to get to the right gear because of false shifts. The saddle, the chain and the wheels which ship with the bike are quite cheap and low end. If you want to get the most out of the bicycle, you must have those upgraded.
Overall, the bike does well. It is extremely easy to handle the bicycle as it is pretty light and this lightweight enables it to go really fast. Ride quality offered is perfectly acceptable and this one could easily function as a commuter bike. Looks of the bicycle are pretty impressive and certainly attract a lot of attention. The price of tag associated with this bike seems reasonable and if you are thinking of buying an intermediate level road bike, you can certainly consider this bicycle as one of your options.
