Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I've been looking for a second CX bike for some time and reviewed quite a few. I decided on the Legato, favouring the weight and specification, and also sticking with the traditional cantilever brakes. When the bike arrived it was everything I expected. Great build quality, light and comfortable to ride. It's a little big in the size range and perhaps for a more confident feel I would drop a size, however this is a personal preference. The component quality is excellent and accurately described by Evans. If anything, I would recommend opting for the next model, the Calore, as the discs probably would make the bike a perfect CX option, with the current Kore cantilevers being strong for cantilevers but weaker compared to my existing shimano discs on my other CX bike.
Evans service is excellent. The bike was perfectly packaged, well set up and easy to set ready to ride. It's a nice touch that Evans and Moda include the tools required. I live on the Isle of Wight and this always disrupts delivery, even though next day delivery is offered. To be fair, when I mentioned this to Evans customer care they clarified straight away. The bike was dropped off at work by the deliver driver, however, no advance warning was given as suggested on the website; this is not Evans' fault, however, it always lets the service down slightly.
Overall, the Moda Legato is a great bike, quick, agile, good power transfer and stiffness, whilst also comfortable and nicely dampened with the fork. The bike looks very nice in white and has a classy feel that is backed up by an efficient ride.
