(Not interested in the ‘how the Dura Integra came to be’? Jump to the actual review)
Earlier this year, while at the LBS for some preparations on my Sensa Trentino, I was going through the latest brochure of Sensa Bikes.
As you (probably / should) know, I have modified my Giulia G2 to look like a TT bike, by replacing the standard handlebar and aero bar clip on with a 3T Vola cockpit.
However, I quickly found out that this meant I couldn’t (comfortably) ride any serious mountain stages, so I got the Trentino.
And as it also didn’t quite fit the profile of a true TT bike, the pages in the brochure with Sensa’s TT and Tri bikes, caught my eye.
Sensa offers two bikes in that segment: the Dura Integra and the Dura Triathlon.
While I figure(d) the triathlon bike will offer a slightly more comfortable geometry and position because of the length of the courses you will ride with that, I didn’t quite like the look of it.
Not that it would matter much, because surely there was no way in hell the boss would allow the purchase – or even trade in – of my just over a year old Giulia, right?
