BeOne Spirit Comp might probably be considered as one of BeOne’s cheapest hardtail when it comes to its price value, but this bike’s frame is definitely at par to the standards of far more costly bikes in the market. However, one of the main factors that could be a little steep for the BeOne Spirit Comp bike could be in regards to its lack or mudguard and rack bosses, which sets a limitation to the bike’s performance once it is used on the rough terrain. Beyond that, the BeOne Spirit Comp can indeed make the rider feel spirited away with its fast tyres and light weight.
One of the main characteristics that one can observe from the BeOne Spirit Comp would be its rather tensed feel. The bike features a narrow, 24 inch flat bar and springy fork which might work only on the smooth and steady trails, but can rather put on a tense nerve to the rider once he reaches a steep and rocky terrain. In these situations, every rider would wish for the Smart Comp to have bigger, wider handle bars and maybe an addition of a back sweep and a higher saddle seat could be of great help as well.
Equipment and Components
Spirit Comp also features the Schwalbe Smart Sam Tyres, which on the plus side, provide a fast, smooth ride when used on smooth, dry pavements. Aside from the tyres, the overall lightness of the bike, which weighs lighter than its other market counterparts, can be a positive factor since this adds stability and easy maneuvering on regular courses. However, the same feature on the fast-rolling tyres might not do any favours once the bike is used to trek on wet and rocky trails. The other factor which affects the experience of driving this bike would be the rear mechanism, front gear mechanism as well as the gears which make use of the Shimano Deore mech and Shimano shifters. Instead of the usual 27-gear, the bike utilizes 24 gears and the hydraulic disc brakes work very all after the break-in. The rear mechanism, however, provides a negative aspect as the mechanism is in constant contact with the chain stay especially during freewheeling.
In terms of the bike’s frame, the BeOne Spirit Comp utilizes an aluminium frame in tough grey overcoat. An oval down tube supports the head tube, providing all the intermediate tubes with strength. The chainstays are in oval features as well, and provides for extra heel space.
The overall impression for the BeOne Spirit Comp is that the bike’s parts and mechanisms are definitely at high standard especially when compared to other bikes which are priced at around 500GBP. However, this is not the kind of bike that riders will want to use during trail adventures which include downhill, freewheeling or in areas which mostly feature rocky and steep trails. The BeOne Spirit Comp, however, is the perfect riding companion for daily bike rides on regular, dry trails as it allows for a light and smooth ride due to its lightweight frame and fast-rolling tyres.
