The legendary Keith Bontrager summed up the issue of budget perfectly.
Quality, light, cheap – Pick two.
The Criterium Way is not to get you to spend the maximum amount of money. Rather, our focus is on making sure that what you do buy meets your needs and, importantly, your expectations in every respect. There are plenty of bike suppliers and manufacturers who make acceptable bikes but their primary weapon is price and components. That is not our approach. We start with the frame and your needs, which is why we only partners with brands who share the same heritage and core philosophy. Buy from Criterium Cycles and whatever your budget, you are getting something that is focused on you and only you.
