TimC   Recreational Rider [Mar 01, 2005]
Strength:

Light, stiff and so comfortable!

Weakness:

None so far.

Note: the price paid is in UK pounds Sterling. This is a very good frame for the money. I bought it to build up a winter bike; this frame has clearance for mudguards. In spite of this, Campag Mirage short-drop brakes work fine. The thing that surprised me about this frome is how comfortable it is. It's a little longer in the wheelbase than the Racelight RC or KiC, and isn't so aggressively compact in its geometry, so I wasn't expecting it to be as stiff and responsive as those frames, but you'd be hard pushed to say this wasn't a racer! Yet the comfort is astounding. I'm a fairly weighty rider (185 lb), and I can push 350 watts if I need to, yet the frame doesn't twist or distort, it just gets on with it. And at 21lb including a rack, mudguards, a triple chainset, 2 bottle cages and heavy Michelin Axial Carbon tyres, it's light nough for most users.
