If you want the absolute best bang for your buck in a new mountain bike, it’s hard to beat the offerings from Fezzari.
From endurance road bikes to mountain bikes, and cyclocross race bikes to triathlon bikes, the Utah-based Fezzari brand has become one of the leaders in consumer-direct bike market.
Not familiar with Fezzari? Neither was I until shortly before the bike test. Turns out they're a smaller, direct to consumer bike brand out of Salt Lake City, UT. Think Canyon Bicycles, except without Movistar and Katusha as sponsored teams.
The bike was near perfect.
Fezzari’s out-of-the-box thinking allows riders to afford bikes they would otherwise have to mortgage their house for.
Fezzari’s newest bikes look to be just as, if not more up to date with the latest trends as most major manufacturers.
From that first pedal stroke we had a feeling the Timp Peak was a winner, and the fact we literally had to pry it away from our last test rider, speaks volumes about the goods the Fezzari delivers.
Fezzari is driven to crank out consumer-centric bikes that can hang with, and even surpass, the most popular brands in the business.

A thoughtful and mature way to go about bike design.
Very well thought out.
We have had nothing but good interactions with the customer service department at Fezzari and are pretty confident that they are some of the best in the business as far as coming through for their riders.
The best of the best, the Timp Peak 2 [loaded is only] $5,800. Sure that’s a lot of money, but holy **** that’s a dialed build!
The Fezzari soaked up everything I threw at it.
With the release of their latest Foré line of road bikes, the CR4 Disc is an intriguing example of innovation that we’ve yet to see from many of the more well-established bike manufacturers.
Not only would Fezzari’s excellent customer support staff help make sure the build was up to snuff, but the Timp Peak’s inherently excellent chassis, and a dialed parts mix collaborated to create a truly pleasant surprise …. From that first pedal stroke we had a feeling it was a winner, and the fact we literally had to pry it away from our last test rider, speaks volumes about the goods Fezzari delivers.
Fezzari has put a lot of thought into the CR5, they spec'ed the bike like it was destined for the WorldTour.
The Fezzari Foré CR5 defied...expectations.

When we pulled the bike out of the box to assemble it, we were pleasantly surprised at how dialed in the bike was.
It’s hard to find fault with the Foré Cyx, and it’s telling that it was our bike of choice come race day.
The bike handled beautifully, and I kept thinking the entire test weekend how well this bike is designed.
What I found was a frame and finish that is on par with … every other bike in the test. Without prior knowledge, there's nothing to separate the Fezzari from the Scott or the BMC....except price.
The Foré CR5 defied expectations.
Fezzari is a company that has customer service on the brain.
To alleviate concerns about the lack of face-to-face contact in the direct-to-consumer model, Fezzari utilizes a 23-point custom sizing and set-up process … where detailed measurements and precise fit specifications are dialed in before the bike ships to the consumer.
I had zero concerns about this bike.
Fezzari is the biggest little bike company you’ve never heard of.
Fezzari got the ride quality spot on, threading the tight needle that will appeal to a fit fondo rider and pure racer alike.
Utah-based Fezzari Bicycles began with humble ambitions, but has grown to become a major player in the consumer-direct bicycle market.
The Foré was the most talked-about bike in our test, and not only because of its sophisticated, Belgian Classics-inspired color scheme. Much of the chatter was about Fezzari’s direct-to-consumer structure, which cuts out bike shops – as well as a lot of the cost…. It’s an outstanding all-rounder, blending racing quickness and all-day comfort in a package that excelled on every test course we tried…. There’s no denying the value. Fezzari promises a 23-point custom fitting, delivers its bikes ready to ride, and teams with local shops for follow-up and service. 15.1 lbs; fezzari.com.
Fezzari’s customer service and attention-to-detail is excellent. Despite being a relative unknown, the Timp Peak held its own against an armada of dream bikes, and we’re confident that many buyers would be pleased with this package.
The bike felt light, and was well-suited for me right out of the gate.
The CR4 Disc is the standout thanks to the uniqueness of its impeccable stopping ability and the front and rear thru-axles, which stiffen up the frame’s key contact points with the wheels, creating a noticeably more stable ride quality.
Step on the pedals the bike accelerates smoothly and corners like it's on rails. Now with SRAM Force22, 11-speed drivetrain and Mavic Aksium wheels, the Fore CR3 is at the top of its class in performance, reliability and comfort.
After several weeks of testing and hundreds of miles in the Fezzari Fore CR4’s saddle, we came away impressed with the bike’s all-around capabilities. This is noteworthy due to the growing trend among manufacturers to design bikes for very specific purposes. From super-stiff carbon racing platforms to comfort-oriented endurance bikes, from slippery-in-the-wind aero road models to disc brake-equipped gravel bikes, there are fewer and fewer new models coming to market that can lay claim to the title of "all-rounder."
It should be clear by now that I was impressed with this bike.
Fezzari utilizes 3D printing machines to create 3D-printed, collapsible mandrels which allow a tighter wrapping of carbon for efficiency and light weight. The process gives the inside of the tubes a smooth finish to help reduce weight, create better forms and a better consistency over a larger number production frames. The mandrels are removed before the curing process, piece by piece, thanks to the 3D printed material. Fezzari's carbon layup uses smaller sheets of carbon at junctions to make the layup more precise and lighter while decreasing carbon fiber waste. According to Fezzari, this technique is more expensive to use but gives better performance and weight qualities.
The Nebo Peak is a contender that is second to none.
Fezzari has an unusual business model that mixes consumer-direct shipping with the personalized service of a brick-and-mortar shop. To provide this service, the company developed a system to customize each bike specifically for the customer. Fezzari uses a 23-point custom setup system based off specific measurements including a rider’s height, weight, inseam, torso and arm length, along with a few other factors such as age and riding style. It then sets up the bike specifically to individual specifications and ships it directly to your door.
The Foré CR5 rider prizes ride quality over all else. He or she wants light and stiff. This rider is interested in saving some serious money.
We’d have to say Fezzari’s fitting system is pretty dialed.
Fezzari also offers one of the best warranties in the business, a 30-day money back guarantee, as well as a 23-point custom bike fit to make sure they get the right bike size for you.
If you want to get into road biking or want a bike that is durable, high-performing, and as comfortable as a road bike can be, the Catania is for you.
If there is one thing that's clear about Fezzari, it's that the company cares about getting more riders on the trail.
The Alta Peak has been the choice for those wanting an all-mountain, do everything bike at an unbeatable value and it just got better with its newly redesigned frame.
The Solitude is my vote for mountain bike of the year. Fezzari nailed it with this one, only they should have named it the Tazmanian Devil, because of it can spin circles around other mountain bikes.
Science of Triathlon
After 7,000 miles of 50 Ironmans in 50 days in 50 consecutive states, the Fezzari T5 gave me no issues whatsoever.

Fezzari has made a reputation with customer service
Fezzari has made a reputation with customer service. How can a direct company do that? It has a monster 23-point set-up that allows you to tweak every component and touch point, and you can swap parts ad nauseam. Want pink bar tape and cables? Fezzari will do it.
Fezzari is ready to meet your needs and help you quietly land on the podium. Don’t tell your competition.
The Fezzari Solitude breaks down to three factors: weight, price and performance. It delivers on all three.
We took advantage of Fezzari's 23-point fit system, which actually was a pretty smooth process. Everything from inseam to arm length was accounted for, and Fezzari used the information to calculate the best fit.
Best bike I've ever owned!
Brock Liston (Utah)
What a team, and what great service! THANK YOU!
Reed Best (American Fork, Utah)
The sales and build team at Fezzari is like no other... I will be back year after year to upgrade each of my family members bikes without question.
Incredible bike for the money. I've been riding for over 20 years, and owned bikes from nearly all the top brands. However, Fezzari easily makes the best bike around.
Scott (Provo, Utah)
They [Fezzari] are truly invested in making sure I love this bike. Their customer service is second to none...I have to believe this would be the case whether I lived in the area or not. They love to ride and invest that passion in the people they serve.
