Aventon Mataro Low - Celeste

55cm Aventon Mataro Low in Celeste -//- Overall an excellent frame with one issue that has still not been resolved by Aventon -//- Seat collar is still prone to slipping, I have tried a few fixes and tighten past the recommended Nm and still constantly have seat post slipping issue. I have been told by Aventon a number of times they would post a new seat collar clamp which they have not. To clarify the slipping issue I am getting is not an up / down issue, but a left to right issue. After a decent ride my saddle will be pointing either left, or right by a fair amount. I have not experienced this with any of my other frames and can tell right away it is due to the poor design of the seat collar -//- Whilst the frame is affordable, looks great, built pretty well and finished nicely the slipping seat collar is a big enough deal that I will be changing frames shortly. I have given up on chasing Aventon any further -//- Customer service is a bit of a hit and miss. Great one moment, not great the next -//- This will be the final upgrades until the new frame comes and all parts get moved over

Super clean build man. I am considering purchasing one myself. Just one question, how long after you started riding it did you start to notice the seat post problem?

Hey mate! Thanks she was pretty tight. Noticed it right away and continued to happen the whole time. Have been told by Aventon though that the new seat collar design should fix the issues but we can't confirm

great build would you take the new aventon mataro low over the 721/725??

Depends on on the type of ride you are going for I suppose. The Aventon is more agressive. 721/725 are a bit more relaxed. As far as weight goes they are all very similar. Tough choice, would recommend either the 721 or Aventon

That might be it, I'm sorry to hear that u didn't have a good experience with them. I want to ask your opinion on mataro low -I'm 5'11.7 close to 6 long inseam around 85-86cm, what's my best choice on the size? 55 with 120-130mm stem or 57 with 100-110mm stem?

definitely go a 57... it will ride similar to a 55 because of the down sloping top tube.

One more quest, is that leader fork gave u enough toe space? Overlapping issue?

Zero overlap even with the leader fork

I'm 5'11.5 and I got a 55, it was a bit small even with a 130mm stem. Thinking about selling it and get a 57

I am 5'7 and ran a 90mm stem, and the 55cm was perfect

The ride was actually very nice... quite stiff, very smooth and felt very nimble and light. Only issue though was the dang seat collar not able to hold the seat in position. Besides that its a nice bike. You can check the full review at www.biblicalfixies.com/reviews ;)

That's a bummer but not surprising. I've heard the same customer service and poor quality from people with UNKNOWN bikes. Nice concept but poorly executed. Only popular because they're budget bikes.

Indeed.. Would we grab another one? Unlikely.. You can live with poor service if the bike is cheap and faultless, but this isn't. We won't be back until they address their seat collar issues

Totally. I was actually considering the mataro low after seeing your build and I knew about the seat collar issue before getting my concept. What are you planning to build next?

There are a few builds coming through soon, not sure if the guys want to let the cat out of the bag just yet so will have to keep hush. Some pursuit frames is about as much info that can be let slip ;)

If you're after a street bike, not too heavy and don't ride too hard then the Mataro Low would still be an option, especially at the price point. Overall build is excellent but let down hugely at the seat collar. Weird when you finish a ride and you notice your seat is pointing towards your right thigh
