Guru Sidero Review
Material: Tig welded, butted, air hardened chromoly steel. Rider matched for stiffness and compliance.
Who is it for? The Guru Sidero is for the performance oriented road rider/racer looking for a responsive no-nonsense bike designed to provide the durability, liveliness and smooth ride of high quality steel.
Noteworthy: The Guru Sidero is one of the nicest frames available for the money. Really good quality chromoly steel almost always rides and lasts better than basic carbon fiber and the Guru Sidero uses a really nice tubeset that is rider matched for precision and balance.
Bottom Line: Sidero, roughly translates to “of steel”. However, we think that Guru Sidero means, “A bike that does not cut corners, yet is one of the least expensive fully customizable road bikes on the market”. A sensible component mix combined with top shelf workmanship, tubing and finish makes for a bike that holds its own in ride quality and fits better than anything else in its price point. If you are looking in the $3000 range and value quality of construction and ride quality, consider getting carbon off your mind and getting a nice high grade steel into your head. The Guru Sidero is an exceptional mid-level performance bike that gives you top of the line features and ride at a competitive price.
