So I posted about this under feedback and had no response. Then contacted support and they basically told me to try to make a fuss about it on the forums because that’s how they prioritise things…
The Drop Shop should be a great new feature but it isn’t, because there’s nothing in it worth buying! I’m already at level 20 so have a whole bunch of nice frames and wheels, and none of the ones on sale are any better in terms of weight and aero properties. But the worst thing is that the frames don’t consistently reflect their real-life conunterparts, and almost none of them have colour options!
I had to get to level 20 before I could get a good bike (Madone) that had the ability to properly customise the colour. Why would I spend all of my drops on something that has worse or no better performance and looks crap because it can’t be coloured? Why do so few frames offer colour customisation…???
Also, as a Ridley Helium SLX owner in the RW I strongly object to the fact that this frame only has a three star weight rating. The Tarmac Pro, Cannondale Evo, Trek Emonda, Canyon Ultimate and Cervelo R5 all have four star weight ratings. Of these, only the Emonda could possibly be said to be lighter than the Helium, and the Tarmac and R5 are significantly heavier… Please fix this!!
