So I picked her up this morning, really happy with Andy and Nick @bikepro and how this was setup, they really went the extra mile with this, did two fittings, they listened, checked, refitted, rechecked, and listened some more, provided feedback and most importantly they made sure I was 100% happy. They even did some product upgrades for no extra charge as they were short of the usual parts.
She’ll handle anything I can throw at it, and beg for more. She ain’t the lightest, but at just under 10kgs she’s no slouch either.
built this up with a few missions in mind as she’s replacing two bikes, commuter, wet day roady, CX. She’s in road mode here. Just lashed out and bought some farsports cx wheels; 50mm rim, novatech disc hubs, sapim delta spokes. Want to get some woundup carbon disc forks soon.
Sure you want to go wound up? I like the look of the bladed forks a lot more. Personal i suppose.
Many more options in that category too: 3T luteus, whisky parts no7, kinesis cxd or enve disc forks. Or cheap and cheerful kinesis dc37 carbon disc.
Argh yes, didn’t think about tapered/non-tapered. I’ve got the straight Kinesis fork on my cx bike. Have thrown lots of abuse at it.
DDCX, sycacross, that other cross series last year, two dirty gran fondo’s, gravel grinders etc.
Folded a front rim in half, dented another. Fork is still going strong.
