Title: Ares APlus and Colony Apprentice Complete Bikes
Post by: dsnowden on January 15, 2020, 11:00:11 PM
Looking for opinions on Ares Aplus and Colony Apprentice complete bikes.  Had my bikes stolen a few years ago and miss it dearly so looking for a replacement and buying complete is easier than parting out everything.


Any help appreciated.


Thanks

I've looked at both and they are very comparable. if you are a taller individual the 19.5" top tube on the Ares looks nice otherwise get the shorter colony/ares completes. Also just on sheer impulse / emotion, if you could get any of them for free which would it be? it's an interesting way to help you decide as well

I have a 2016 Ares APlus frame. Nice and light, low 18.5 TT, but it wasn't to my liking. I ended up switching back to my older Ares frame. But for modern riding, I definitely recommend the Ares. I'm just more of a mid-school rider.
