A “Normal” Bike: The Factor O2

As Romain Bardet has become one of the few riders able to attack Chris Froome and the SKY armada at the Tour de France this year, the PELOTON Service Course thought a closer look at his bike, the Factor 02, was called for. This review first appeared in the May issue of PELOTON Magazine.

For lack of a better word, the new Factor O2 is a “normal” bike. Of course, that’s only when compared to the bikes that have worn the Factor name before. This sub-800-gram all-rounder exists in the rarified air of the Super Bike, but when created by a name that produced the $30,000 Aston Martin ONE-77, the O2 is the most ‘normal’ bike Factor has yet made.
