Today, timing is pretty tight. I mounted my Astrum for only 1:30. No time to lose, it's gone.
A bumpy road waiting for me on the first quarter of an hour turns, short ribs and damaged roads. Always very attentive to the support that I have on the bike, I particularly appreciate the little vibration at the saddle and hands.
The criterion  "comfort" is essential for me, and it is clear that the Ratio Astrum is super-comfortable!
As for support I have on the pedals, the power transmission is optimal. My pedal is stiff and BB30 bottom bracket is for something.
When dancer is set to pass the hump looming before me, this is just awesome. What a feeling! Combined with my bottom bracket, I feel no loss of energy, and on the contrary, I feel propelled forward. I, who normally spends 95% of my time in the saddle, I found a certain freedom to get up. But more than a pleasure, it's mostly a need for efficiency is obvious!
The criterion of "nervousness" is in my opinion, the success of Ratio. Technically, I'm finally not surprised, because when one looks at the fork, it is a weapon of war: slender and stately, the word that comes to mind is "racy". As for the weight of the bike, it belongs to the category "lightweight".

When to chain a few corners, it is with ease that takes place this art of driving. No need to be a technicality  rider  have four beautiful waterfalls last year, I am often on the brakes ... For once, my confidence, and some efficiency in the field.
BB30 case, lightweight and sleek fork, that's a combination that I love! And for giving me the max small star criteria "handling" and "nervousness".

Here, back to bike ride: road, long, flat and of good quality. I alternate position hands down of  the handlebar to  triathlete position  making me warm thighs.
First observation better reduce one tooth less in this kind of effort to maintain stability of the machine. The rear is still stable and well energy transmission, while the front sleeve just to match the stiffness of the assembly. In other words, we must apply to maintain bike  line. Out of curiosity, I remake this road with high rims (Mavic COSMIC), and this time, the rigidity of the front wheel will rebalance all brilliantly! Even if it is not  too easy to drive!
So there I returned to the fold, and if I have  to say few words sum up my Astrum, I would say:
Lightness, maneuverability and nervousness. My favorite pieces: fork and top tube. Special mention to the attention to peripheral carbon parts (bottle cage, seat post clamp ...) As for the design, I'm a fan !!

- RATIO Bike is equiped with following parts :
Frame, fork(astrum), headset TACTO carbon, TACTO stem, TACTO handlebar, TACTO seatpost, carbon bottle cages, Antislip Tape, and each atheltes will protect his/her  bike traveling using RATIO Traveler Bike Bag.

"At first glance, the harmony of the whole frame I
like. And the first uprising too! With astonishing lightness
no imbalance and front / rear. The devices are all
bound and show great care at the finish (game
direction, gate cans, seatpost, stem and handlebar, even tri  bar
is  very effective), which is not to displease
for the entire visual.
Being able to select a seatpost non-integrated seduces me
also (anyone who has traveled on a bicycle with
an integrated seatpost understand me!). However, the version
"Integrated" also exists. The new system of housing
BB30 bottom bracket is present, helping to decrease weight.
So go to sensations after my first few uses.
I soon found myself at home on my mount. There is virtually
no vibration through the frame and spread, despite the lightweight
cycling, driving downhill and cornering is nicely
posed and direct.
I also feel the beautiful work done by the drawing ratio of
rear triangle. Indeed, when I press hard on the pedals, I
feel immediately a good transfer of power in the wheel
back, especially in the false flat amount - a real treat!
In short I'm looking forward to even more knowledge with my machine,
especially in the mountains and of course in race configuration.
Conclusion: A simple design, effective and gives this new class
lightweight mount a seductive simplicity, taking in cons
up competition still seeking the latest gadget. "

"I very quickly got used to my Ratio.
From the 1st second test, I felt its light weight, maneuverability and responsiveness!
I love riding the bumps with the dancer and this Ratio is a pure pleasure! In downhill, there is just to accompany him and he takes the trajectories alone! "
