Yes, across the range, Strela's all have identical frames.
The Strela Sport frame does not have rack mounts, so not ideal for touring. But for commuting, if you use a backpack, it should make a very good urban run-around.
Yes, you could. But not sure the advantages of the aero wheels at their cost would really be justified on the Sport model
The hydro formed alloy frame of the Strela is remarkably light and purposefully stiff. This means that the frame is light for an alloy frame, and strong enough to be ridden hard. It features a tapered 1-1/8"-1.5" headtube, Internal Cable Routing and a replaceable derailleur hanger. Hydro forming is the process of forcing tubes into complex negative molds using internally pressurized water and or oil. This creates lightweight, super strong alloy tubing with complex shapes.
Strela Sport is fitted with the Silverback Advanced Dynamics carbon fork. The carbon fork further reduces overall weight on the bike, improves aerodynamics, steering precision and ride comfort. With an immaculate paint matched finish, the fork has a tapered carbon steerer and QR dropouts and looks as good as it rides.
Geometry on the mid compact Strela is designed for a well balanced ride - shining on both longer rides and climbs/descents, with great comfort, efficient power delivery and loads of cornering stability and grip.
Strela Sport is fitted with a quality double wall Surface, 700C alloy wheelset. These are quick rolling and wrapped in Vittoria Zaffiro 700x28C tyres, suited to the Strela's 'do anything' nature.
An efficient, quality, Shimano Claris 2x8 speed groupset ensures longevity, smooth shifting and efficient power delivery to the wheels.
Strela Sport is designed to do a bit of everything - well. Going fast and nimble handling is great, but you need to be able to manage that speed for control. Strela Sport uses powerful Shimano Claris rim brakes to effectively do just that.
The wider headtube on the frame ensures greater steering accuracy and better front end stiffness. The increased stiffness is used in order to reduce the flex of the front end of the bike, which the rider feels as a more stable ride.
Strela features neat internal routing. This sleek solution cleans up the frame and cockpit and improves aerodynamics.
Strela Sport features Surface alloy cockpit components. Lightweight, strong and good looking, these purpose chosen components improve bike fit and ergonomics.
