Trifox X10 Purchase & Build Experience

Gean built this bike by himself. So, I asked him a few questions regarding the pre-order and build process.

Gean, can you please explain why you decided to buy Trifox X10? What was its main selling point for you?

I decided on Trifox because, during my research, I didn’t find any complaints about them. Additionally, their prices are affordable, and I liked this frame model very much.

Where did you order the frame? How was the purchase? Did everything go smoothly?

I ordered the frame from the Trifox official store on Aliexpress. They answered all my questions, and everything went normal. I received the frame in less than 5 days. (Note: Gean ordered the frame from Aliexpress Brazil.)

Did you experience any issues when building the X10 bike (especially with the bottom bracket area and internal cable routing)?

No! By the time the frame arrived, I had researched all the parts needed. I prepared them before the assembly. Because I am a bike mechanic, I didn’t experience any issues when building the bike.


Trifox X10 Riding Experience

Below, you will learn more about Gean’s riding experience with Trifox X10.

X10 is an aero frameset. Does it feel and ride like a proper aero road bike? Or does it feel sluggish?

Because it is an aero bike, it is fast on flats, in descents, etc. But it also climbs well. Feel sluggish? No! It’s very responsive.

Aero bikes are known for their high stiffness. Does the X10 meet these criteria? 

Yes, very well.

What about the riding comfort? Could you rate it on a scale of 1-10? How do the frame and wheels handle harsh roads?

Because of its relatively aggressive geometry, I experience hand numbness during long rides (around 150 km). But overall, I would rate it 8/10. Unfortunately, local roads are not very good.

Is the bike stable at high speeds, especially in descents?

Yes! It’s very stable and gains speed very quickly. It shakes slightly when entering/exiting a draft, but all bikes I’ve ridden were like that. 

What are your overall impressions from riding Trifox X10? What surprised you the most about this frameset?

I was very surprised by the quality of the finish done and its low weight.

Is there anything you don’t like about this bike?

I believe it delivers great value for the money. Its build quality is great, so you can rely on it and feel safe when riding it.

Is there anything you don’t like about this bike? 

No! I am very satisfied.
